About this product
- DescriptionWhen Sonia and Gordon Jones left New York City for a quiet life on a farm in Nova Scotia, they never dreamed they'd end up creating a multi-million dollar yogurt industry. But when Daisy gave too much milk for the family, Sonia started making yogurt for a local health food store. The product was so popular that it got shelf space in all the supermarket chains in the Maritime provinces. Sonia Jones wrote a book called It All Began With Daisy which was published by E.P. Dutton, adopted by the Literary Guild of America, condensed by the Reader's Digest and translated into many languages. But competition from a successful small business is t always welcomed by big business interests, so Goliath rose up to challenge Daisy. At this point the action diverges from the Old Testament narrative, where David uses his own ingenuity to overcome Goliath. In this true story the federal government requires that the slingshot be disallowed in favor of regulation swords for all parties to the conflict. The poignancy of the betrayal of Citizen Daisy by her own government is palpable. Yet this is t just an attack on the co-conspiracy of big government and big business. The story of Daisy and Goliath, like all good parables, crystallizes the issues and provides us with hope for a better future.
