Good Day I am from South Africa and we as a family try to live of the land. We farm small scale fruits, herbs and vegetbles. I am also the founder of a company called Live Unplugged and we are in the prosecc to help the small true organic farmers get organized and to set up outlets for them where their produce can come to every day of the week. They will then also be co-owners of these outlets. We will be providing real food again at very good pricing. I will give your ice cream a go, it "reads" delicious. You have a great site, I just today stumbled on it. Thank you for this great place to come and do some good reading on so much stuff. Shalom Shalom Davison
