Meet Joel Salatin, America’s most famous sustainable farmer

Jul 26, 2012 -
  Meet Joel Salatin, America’s most famous sustainable farmer
Joel Salatin, author and farmer, in a lively interview with our Marketing Manager, Autumn Barr.

Joel Salatin has a plan to change the world and make it sustainable.

He’s already walking the walk on his farm, and he talked the talk with us at the Mother Earth News Fair in Puyallup, Washington.

Joel told our Marketing Manager, Autumn Barr, about the three choices we can make daily that will revolutionize our relationship to food.

Meet Joel in our new video and find out why it’s standing room only at his speeches.

Joel puts his ideas into practice at his Polyface Farm in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley.

His latest book, Folks, This Ain’t Normal, has simple (but not simple-minded) solutions to the complex problems of 21st century food.

Joel recommends integrating animals as part of our gardens. Ready to get started with your own backyard chickens? We have videos about chicken keeping, plus articles, books, and all the supplies you’ll need (except hens!) in our Backyard Chicken section. Don’t miss our Omega-3 Chicken Forage Blend seed mix that will give your chickens a pasture experience, even in the city (and ramp up the Omega-3s in their eggs).

Dear Joel,
kudos to you for being and doing who you are and what you do! My love and respect I reserve for those I call SECULAR SAINTS. You are one of them. I first met you in Food Inc. I am outraged and frightened what happened to the soil, and the food, agricultural industrial practices and farming animals versus raising them in normal, natural environment. I am tempted to write an essay for all I wanted to say, adding to what I am learning about your activity. Hungary suffers the same fate as the rest of the world whose soil been raped, poisoned till death. Industrial scale animal “production”  with attendant suffering and cruelty plus nutritional compromise as our protein.  Last year visited my brother and managed to visit a free range Mangalica pigfarm,  one of the highlight of my visit.  A family business plenty rea and the animals (a few cows, ducks, chicken) are like pets while growing. The unique quality of the pig’s meat and fat as well as the taste beame premium
and I am concerned growers tempted to cash in on exploiting the reputation of the Mangalica breed and produce them in feedlots with rubbish food corrupting the nish.

We need people like you to inspire us.

May your God go with you,

Be well!
