Found a lovely aptronym today – a contact at the leading UK organic certification agency, The Soil Association

“To find out about farms you can visit please contact Rupert Aker, demonstration farms officer…”

Given the appropriate name to start with, there is something of poetry about his email address: raker@soilassociation.org
