"Joel Salatin owns Polyface Farm in Virginia, arguably the model for sustainable farms. Salatin said once that in America we have an NRA for guns — we should have a group to protect our food supply. According to Michael Pollan, Salatin is 'an evangelical Virginia farmer [who] says a revolution against industrial agriculture is just down the road.'”

"Joel F. Salatin (born 1957) is an American farmer, lecturer, and author whose books include You Can Farm and Salad Bar Beef."

"Salatin raises livestock using holistic methods of animal husbandry, free of potentially harmful chemicals"
