"Dear Mr. & Mrs. Mathews: My husband & I have purchased about 40 acres next door to Machaca Hill lodge & we want to basically do what you are doing, ha ha ha. At first I thought of vanilla, & oud trees, but you seem to have the vanilla market cornered so would not dream of competing. We will come w/at least 1 of our sons who is currently working on a dairy farm & we want to be self-sufficient & have some sort of plantation. I was also thinking of mushrooms & herbs or other things for the fragrance industry. I want to keep bees & make mead as well. Of course, I am new to this, but have lived all over the world & am quite resourceful. We've only visited Belize once over a yr. ago, San Ignacio. Our landing date is May/June of next yr. Looking forward to meeting you & visiting your farm. Any suggestions or ideas are most welcome. Sincerely, Cynthia & Serge Bisson"
