Joel Salatin, Polyface Farms
Joel Salatin is a full-time farmer in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. A third generation alternative farmer, he returned to the farm full-time in 1982 and continued refining and adding to his parents’ ideas.
The family’s farm, Polyface Inc. (“The Farm of Many Faces”) has been featured in SMITHSONIAN MAGAZINE, NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC, GOURMET and countless other radio, television and print media. Profiled on the Lives of the 21st Century series with Peter Jennings on ABC World News, his after-broadcast chat room fielded more hits than any other segment to date. It achieved iconic status as the grass farm featured in the NEW YORK TIMES bestseller OMNIVORE’S DILEMMA by food writer guru Michael Pollan and the award-winning film documentary, FOOD INC.
We are part of an integrity living tsunami that threatens Wall Street and governmental orthodoxy. That’s a good thing. Modern American orthodoxy assumes that the Dow Jones Industrial Average is far more important than dancing earthworms. That exports are more valuable than functional aquifers. That food convenience is far more important than food knowledge. That health comes from drugs and personal satisfaction comes from Hollywood entertainment. Heretics question all of these axiomatic untruths. Essentially, how those of us who don’t subscribe to the food orthodoxy of our day can unite around our heresies: drug-free, GMO-free, local-centric, seasonal, and beyond. This hard-hitting but humorous subject by farmer, author and entertainer Joel Salatin identifies these outrageous orthodoxies, explains the heresy antidote, and calls for all of us to chart a different path for integrity living.
