A common adage says it takes a village to raise a child, and it’s not far-fetched to think the same for a small business – a small village, or a close-knit town such as Malibu, may be exactly what it takes to get a small business off the ground.

That’s at least the experience of Ann Ryan, a Malibu resident of nearly 20 years, who, with her daughter Beth Levine, started what is now Beachy Cream Organic Ice Cream.
