Joel Salatin, the no-nonsense self-proclaimed “lunatic farmer,” is our inspiration for the way we farm. Whenever we’re having a bad day we watch this video. When we get discouraged about the food giants we are up against, we watch this video. Watch and see if you don’t agree that the way Joel farms is the model for the way it oughta’ be on all farms all over the world! Please help us spread his message far and wide and support farms like ours and others who work very hard to not only treat the animals with respect but are also healing the land and bringing back the soil health through grazing and fertilizing the way nature intended. Farming is not an easy life, and all hard working local farmers deserve our support.
Know your farmer, love your food!
Here we are posing with Joel Salatin, our farm hero, after taking his lunatic farm tour near the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. It was a bucket list thing.
But hey, our back 40 looks almost as good as his. 🙂
