For me the argument is not just can a farmer choose GM, it is, can his choice, be it avocados, apples, pigs, dairy, organic,etc, have a lawful negative impact on an adjoining or nearby business or enterprise of another lawful entity?
Great to get feedback, some really simple but hugely encouraging; These are great Bill, keep them coming!!

It been a while since the last newsletter.

Well it has been a while!!!
Much has happened in the past few months with considerable growth in various Organic Promotions actitives.
The 2009 OrganicAg Expo is all on track for the 19th March at Matamata. To be held on Cleavedale Farm(opposite Racecourse), an organic dairy farm supplying Fonterra. The venue is ideal with large trees and only a few hundred metres from the town boundary. Entry is free and gates open at 10am.
With some 50 exhibits the Expo will provide answers to many questions of farmers, both pastoral and horticultural, who are wishing to take their operations to the next level of profitability.
Welcome to the first newsletter from OrganicAg!
Firstly I know some of you have been registered for this service for some time-we have had a few hold ups-but we are now up and running.
This is just a short edition to ensure that the system and Bill are combatable.
I was approached by a company in early October asking if I was interested in running facilitated discussion groups (again) as they believed the farmers in the organic dairy and pastoral sector desperately required the benefits of this form of networking and support.
Things have progressed...
