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.

:roll: 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
