    Question:
    • Are farm produce and farm product the same?


    Answer:
    • There is every reason to believe they are the same and no reason to believe they are not the same.

    The noun produce refers to agricultural products (i.e. dairy produce is produced from cows; produced from = produce), whereas the noun product refers to manufactured goods (i.e. This cake is made from dairy products; it's a product = it's a result).

    :D

    Cas makes a good point (as usual). However, cheese, for example, might be considered either a farm product or farm produce.

    :)

    semantics
    :D You're right.

    I'm not sure what akemashite means. ake- means something like new beginning. -ma- is probably related to circle; maybe, come full circle, and -shite means, doing. omedetou means, congratulations, and gozaimusu marks formal, polite usage.

    Congratulations on coming full circle! :D
