Note the 'ce' on the end of 'produce' compared to the 't' on the end of 'product' ... sorry about how close they are.

Dictionary definition of produce;

Agricultural and other natural products collectively

------------------- As such it includes 'crop' type things. Crops are 
not animals .. like beef, fish. But fish and beef are both produce, 
hence produce is a wider definition, includes more things. The 
difference between produce and product .. is difficult! A product I take 
to be something that has been modified from its natural state .. 
Crocodile, defiantly a produce, changed to a handbag is, as a handbag, 
defiantly a product. Shelled peanuts have had some work on them .. is 
that amount of work enough to change them from a produce to a product? 
Flip a coin. If the shelled peanuts are sugar coated then they are, to 
me, a product.
