by Joel Salatin

Foreword by Michael Pollan

Reviews

The Wine Wench Blog

November 10, 2010

A great book by farmer Joel Salatin, author, speaker, and owner of one of the most forward thinking, sustainable farms: PolyFace Farms. In this easy to read, user-friendly book, Joel sets out to educate people on a variety of issues and popular beliefs that plague the modern consumer, like the fact that food doesn’t come from a grocery store. Joel teaches his readers that good quality, fresh food comes from local farmers who see themselves as stewards of the land and animals and implement humane and sustainable farming practices.  As a result the quality of the food is healthier and superior than what you’re picking up from the local grocery store. He also teaches how cereal, chocolate, and granola bars aren’t food. He encourages people to pull the curtain back on the food industry and learn why buying food from local farmers is the best quality food you can provide for you, your family, the animals, the farmers, and the environment. Also, learn what questions to ask and what answers you want to hear when buying from local farmers.
