Joel Salatin joins us to discuss his groundbreaking book The Sheer Ecstasy of Being a Lunatic Farmer. Joel will describe how he is shunned by industrial farmers, vilified by corporate agri-business, and stalked by food police as being a lunatic. But Joel enjoys the sheer ecstasy of being surrounded by happy, frolicking animals, dancing earthworms, and appreciative customers. His family's farm, Polyface, Inc. ("Farm of Many Faces") is nestled in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley and has achieved iconic status by featuring prominently in the Grammy nominated documentary, Food Inc., as well as the NYT best-seller Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan. Joel will describe the breadth and depth of the paradigm differences between healing and exploitative food systems. If you want to understand more about our broken food system, and what is being done to fix it, then this show is a must.
