I'm excited to sit down with Joel Salatin. We talk about monocropping, lab-grown meats and much more. Make sure to listen to the full interview to learn more.

Joel Salatin calls himself a Christian-libertarian-environmentalist-capitalist-lunatic-farmer. He co-owns, with his family, Polyface Farm in Swoope, Virginia. He was featured in the New York Times bestseller Omnivore’s Dilemma and the award-winning documentary Food, Inc. His farm services more than 5,000 families, 50 restaurants, 10 retail outlets, and a farmers’ market. When he’s not on the road speaking, he’s at home on the farm, keeping the calluses on his hands and dirt under his fingernails, mentoring young people, inspiring visitors, and promoting local, regenerative food and farming systems.

We discuss the following:

  • All about Joel Salatin
  • Polyface Farm vs conventional farms
