Dear New Farm,

Excellent article on Alon Zimmerman. It’s rare to read truth these days. I visited Alon's farm while teaching organic agricultur to Palestinians. The Zimmermans are exemplary farmers with cooperative values, not at all what the media portrays of the settlers. More articles like this help build peace! Keep up this good work!
