POLYFACE FARM – Joel Salatin

Check out FRESH, the documentary that stars Joel Salatin, at www.FRESHthemovie.com.

Joel Salatin writes in his website that he is “in the redemption business: healing the land, healing the food, healing the economy, and healing the culture.” And if you visited his farm, you’d know he means it & lives it!

He produces beef, chicken, eggs, turkey, rabbits, and forestry product. Yet, Joel calls himself a grass-farmer, for it is the grass that transform the sun into energy that his animals can then feed on. By closely observing nature, Joel created a rotational grazing system that not only allows the land to heal but also allows the animals to behave the way the were meant to — as in expressing their “chicken-ness” or “pig-ness”, as Joel would say.

The Straight Poop on Sustainable Farming


peakmoment

Published on Apr 26, 2012

Peak Moment 211: Innovative farmer Joel Salatin says sustainable agriculture requires both perennials (like native grasses) and herbivores (like cattle) to build soil. Mimicking patterns from nature, this maverick Virginia farmer rotates cattle followed by chickens into short-term pasture enclosures, where their poop fertilizes the earth. His new book “Folks, This Ain’t Normal” is a critique of the industrial food system, and envisions a future where humans are participants in a regenerative, sustaining community of abundance.
