The Lunatic Farmer | Joel Salatin

The article  below appeared originally online at The People Who Feed Us about Joel Salatin. Make sure to check out his newest book The Sheer Ecstasy of Being a Lunatic Farmer.

You would not be wrong thinking of Joel Salatin as a kind of food evangelist. After all, he travels the country preaching common sense and real food with all the energetic fervor of a true believer.

You can view his full-length lecture here. Click here to view the original post.
