Even though this is from last year, I thought that you might be interested in a TEDx (independent TED speakers forum) talk by one of my farming heroes, Joel Salatin. Once we decided that we were really going to do this, really going to jump in and buy a farm, it was Joel’s books You Can Farm and Pastured Poultry Profits that gave us the encouragement we needed to really get moving and take some concrete steps to starting Our Farm.
I don’t always agree with him (remember that social convention about never discussing politics or religion?!), but when it comes to agricultural philosophy, healing the land through encouraging your animals to do what comes naturally, and encouraging farmers to deal directly with their customers I am a huge fan!
