What an honor it is to bring you a podcast interview with Mr. Joel Salatin! I finally got to visit Polyface Farms in Swoope, VA. There was so much there that I wanted to see in person from all of the books I read and the videos of Polyface that I saw: the egg mobile, the mob stock grazing, the rabbit tractors, etc. I set the whole day aside for travel there and to do a self-guided tour of the farm which I cataloged in the blog: Day at Polyface Farm. I had arranged a long time in advance to actually get to speak with Joel Salatin himself. From that time together, we bring you this great interview. I always thought that Joel was inspirational and pretty cool from the books and Youtube videos, but I have to admit that he is even cooler and more inspiring in person. Relax and take a listen to this great interview with one my personal heros, Joel Salatin. We talk about: -Joel loves what he does, and likes to share the kind of things that they have learned over the years in farming -Polyface Farm mission statement: “We develop environmentally, emotionally and economically enhancing agricultural prototypes and to facilitate their reproduction around the world.” -Things that I did NOT see at Polyface Farms -Plants an animals are biological not mechanical -Need for disturbance in the progress cycle -E. Coli, Salmonella, Listeria, Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy, Campylobacter, MRSA, C. Diph, food allergies—all this is part of Nature saying, “Enough!” -Redemptive Farming -Churches turning lawn into farm land -Leveraging portability, profitability and fertility on the small scale homestead (stacking functions—Permaculture)
