The holiday season is an interesting time of year for farmers and wholesalers. They try to predict what items will be in high demand during the holidays - what are the latest trends, what do grocers usually need, the factors go on and on. But sometimes the predictions aren't perfect. Grocers don't order as much as expected. And the growers are stuck with all this extra produce! In a Festivus miracle, we showed our Feats of Strength and took all this produce off their hands.* Just another day in the life of Hungry Harvest. We can't wait to see what 2017 brings. :)
