Joel Salatin's Archive
Joel Salatin calls himself a “Christian libertarian environmentalist capitalist lunatic farmer.” Those who like him call him the most famous farmer in the world, the high priest of the pasture and the most eclectic thinker from Virginia since Thomas Jefferson. Those who don’t like him call him a bioterrorist, Typhoid Mary, a charlatan and a starvation advocate.
With a room full of debate trophies from his high school and college days, 12 published books and a thriving multigenerational family farm, he draws on a lifetime of food, farming and fantasy to entertain and inspire audiences around the world. He’s as comfortable moving cows in a pasture as he is addressing CEOs in a Wall Street business conference.
In addition to penning an exclusive weekly column for Manward Financial Digest, Salatin is the editor of The Stockman Grass Farmer, the granddaddy of catalysts for the grass farming movement. He also writes numerous guest articles for Acres U.S.A. and other publications.
A frequent guest on radio programs and podcasts targeting preppers, homesteaders and foodies, Salatin’s practical, can-do solutions and passionate soliloquies for sustainability offer everyone food for thought and plans for action.
