I wrote about a company called the Chocolate Farm in my book Starting an Online Dummies in 1998. It was started by a brother and sister, Evan and Elise MacMillan, of Denver, Colorado. At the time Evan was 15 and Elise was 13. They started out selling chocolates with a farm theme, such as candy cows. The business grew steadily until they employed 50 people. They were on the Oprah show; they were featured in People Magazine and the Wall Street Journal.
