What Happens to Excess Produce on the Farm?

In order to make way for bad yields, bad weather, and unexpected disasters, (or just to make sure they have enough to satisfy their customers), most farms will end up with more than they can sell.

It's selfless, necessary and wonderful. Watch this video to follow the food from harvest to Rehab Center.
