Beyond Organic: The Story of Polyface Farm by Joel Salatin

Growing up I spent my summers working on my grandfather’s (then uncle’s) farm (pictured below). I might like to farm again someday. If Joel doesn’t get you excited about farmin, I don’t know what will. I need a steak.

Watch the video, very funny (and wise) fellow.

Joel’s website is here.

Updated: I am listening to the Q/A now and many of Joel’s points reiterate the need for smaller government and less intervention in the food to market process. I was amazed to hear the cost added to a single head of beef to get it butchered by a certified agent.
