"But why do we have to break a law to be self-sufficient? What with people who are not comfortable to break laws? Why not fight against the laws instead?    Cheers   Peter"

"I am always surprised how people don't want to see what is going on around them. Problem is that they will stand up and complain once the law is implemented and then it is too late. Example: The future food bill does not allow farmers to sell…"

"Just had a call back from NZFSA and they confirmed,you need a RMP. It is not based on the Food Act 1981 but on the Animal Products Act 1999. What is even more interesting is that the 5 liter per day rule will not be included in the Food Bill 2010.…"
