The Sheer Ecstasy of Being a Lunatic Farmer

Joel Salatin


After 50 years of being a “lunatic” farmer, Joel Salatin has plenty of reflective and humorous stories to tell about farming and our food systems. Drawing from experiences on his beloved Polyface Farm and in defense of his strong belief in a more localized, diversified food system, Salatin provides ammunition to combat conventional farming naysayers and brings his land to life on these pages, taking farming to sacredness and food to ministry. Covering four areas, the book deals with nurturing the earth, food and fiber production, respect for life, and promoting community.
