Joel Salatin is the renowned farmer of Polyface Farm in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Today’s episode centers around the concept behind Joel’s upcoming book “The marvelous pigness of pigs.”
You’ll learn more about what sets Polyface apart from countless conventional farms. Joel’s heart is central to his approach to the animals and the land. His ethics and faith imbue in him a desire to honor and celebrate the uniqueness of each animal he raises. He respects the pigness of pigs, the cowness of cows, and so on.
He challenges us to look at our choices through that same ethical paradigm and to opt out of the industrial food complex: for our health, the good of the land, and the nurturing of the animals under our care.
