After harvesting a bounty of organic tomatoes, the workers at Sage Mountain Farm in Aguanga, California, gathered around a table to grade them into four categories: uno (one), dos (two), aguado (mushy), and compost. Only a handful of moldy tomatoes went into the compost. Everything else had a use.
Sage Mountain Farm is unique. They sell the No. 1 grade tomatoes to wholesalers or retailers like most farms do. They also sell the No. 2 grade tomatoes, since they are perfect quality with nothing wrong aside from slightly small size or odd shape. Even the mushy ones have a future as sundried tomatoes. But on many farms, these tomatoes would go to waste.
Organizations are springing up to donate food that would get tossed. Time for consumers to get on board as well
