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.

Recently, Mr. Salatin spoke to a sold out audience (co-sponsored by The Woodstock Land Conservancy and the Woodstock Farm Festival), where he had plenty to say.

He was kind enough to make time to speak with us before taking the stage. His wit, wisdom and salient points made us realize how powerful a speaker, an advocate and, well . . . evangelist he is for the cause of good food practices.

You can view his full-length lecture here.
