Joel Salatin and his family own Polyface Farm in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. Featured in the iconic foodie book Omnivore’s Dilemma and award-winning film FOOD INC., the farm’s moniker is “healing the land one bite at a time.” A prolific author (12 books to date) and speaker, he promotes local food systems, freedom of food choice, and farming systems that build the commons.
Joel joins us today to discuss his book, “Everything I Want to do Is Illegal” and what he calls, “War Stories from the Local Food Front”, also one of his books.
We will discuss what Joel’s farm produces and how he produces it. The biggest impediment to the success of small farms and how to balance concerns about food safety with common sense. What is missing in food choice for consumers today, the issue of “food sovereignty” and more.
