Fields of Farmers

Interning, Mentoring, Partnering, Germinating

by Joel Salatin

America’s average farmer is sixty years old. When young people can’t get in, old people can’t get out. Approaching a watershed moment, our culture desperately needs a generational transfer of millions of farm acres facing abandonment, development, or amalgamation into ever-larger holdings.

Based on his decades of experience with interns and multigenerational partnerships at Polyface Farm, farmer and author Joel Salatin digs deep into the problems and solutions surrounding this land- and knowledge-transfer crisis. This book empowers aspiring young farmers, midlife farmers, and nonfarming landlords to build regenerative, profitable agricultural enterprises.

"This is not a conference — you won’t see charts and graphs nor hear academic theories. This is a family day to see, handle and taste what works, what is true, and what is real. It’s a celebration of opportunities. Our goal is to encourage you to catch a vision for agricultural enterprises that are emotionally, economically and environmentally enhancing."- Joel Salatin
