Joel Salatin calls himself a ‘Christian libertarian environmentalist capitalist lunatic farmer’. Others who like him call him the most famous farmer in the world, the high priest of the pasture, and the most eclectic thinker from Virginia since Thomas Jefferson. Those who don’t like him call him a bio-terrorist, Typhoid Mary, charlatan, and starvation advocate.
With a room full of debate trophies from high school and college days, twelve published books, and a thriving multi-generational family farm, he draws on a lifetime of food, farming and fantasy to entertain and inspire audiences around the world. He’s as comfortable moving cows in a pasture as he is addressing CEOs in a Wall Street business conference.
A wordsmith and master communicator, he prefers to describe his lectures as word performance rather than presentation, and moves audiences from laughs one minute to tears the next, from frustration to hopefulness, often receiving standing ovations. He prefers the word ‘performance’ rather than ‘presentation’ to describe his lectures. His favorite activity?–Q&A. “I love the interaction,” he says.
He co-owns, with his family, Polyface Farm in Swoope, Virginia. The farm, which was featured in the New York Times bestseller Omnivore’s Dilemma and award-winning documentary Food Inc. and The Magic Pill.
In this episode, Joel will share with us:
- the importance of nurturing the soil, and the farming practices that best do this
- the environmental cost of farming animals versus that of growing monocrops
