Millions of people follow the accounts of some of the most famous people on social media. Some star chefs, TV hosts, and social media personalities have a dedicated following that could rival a top-10 celebrity.

Top chef Jonathon Waxman of Milk Bar fame has his own food and agriculture-related Instagram account, @mixedliquids. “The plant community is growing all the time,” Waxman said. “I have to follow a lot of people on Instagram because the plants are just amazing.”
