Joel Salatin is a smart, passionate farmer from Virginia whose innovative livestock operation was featured in Michael Pollan’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma. He’s now published his own book called Folks, This Ain’t Normal. It’s an incredibly interesting look at the state of industrial agriculture, and it’s effect on our health and culture. His hope with this book is to awaken a thirst for a knowledge about food, farming and sustainability. And he did just that for me.
