Joel Salatin is a third generation farmer in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. Joel and his family’s farm, Polyface Farms, are featured prominently in Michael Pollan's book The Omnivore's Dilemma and in the documentary films, Food, Inc. and Fresh.
Joel holds a BA degree in English and has published six books, including Everything I Want To Do Is Illegal: War stories from the local food front, Family Friendly Farming: A Multi-Generational Home-Based Business Testament, and You Can Farm: The Entrepreneur's Guide to Start and Succeed in a Farming Business.
The mission at Polyface Farms is to develop emotionally, economically, environmentally enhancing agricultural enterprises and facilitate their duplication throughout the world. Joel and his family fulfill that mission through their dedication to alternative, environmentally-friendly farming techniques. The cows, chickens, turkeys, pigs, and rabbits at Polyface Farms are raised on a rotational grazing system inspired by nature that allows the land to heal, creating harmony between the environment and the animals.
Joel Salatin’s speaking and writing reflect dirt-under-the-fingernails experience punctuated with mischievous humor. He passionately defends small farms, local food systems, and the right to opt out of the conventional food paradigm.
