    Joel Salatin and four generations of his family run Polyface Farm in Swoope, Virginia, providing beef, pork, poultry, and forestry products to local families and restaurants. A self-described “Christian libertarian environmentalist capitalist lunatic farmer,” Salatin has been called the most famous farmer in the world. When he’s not traveling and speaking, he is home on the farm “keeping the callouses on my hands and dirt under my fingernails, mentoring young people, inspiring visitors, and promoting local, regenerative food and farming systems.” Salatin’s books include Family Friendly Farming, Pastured Poultry Profits, Salad Bar Beef, You Can Farm, Holy Cows and Hog Heaven, Everything I Want to Do Is Illegal, The Sheer Ecstasy of Being a Lunatic Farmer, and The Marvelous Pigness of Pigs.
