Make Best Use Of Your Creativity And The Community

Joel Salatin is an outspoken agriculture revolutionary with designs to redeem our food system. He was profiled at length by Michael Pollan in The Omnivore's Dilemma, and is the author of a number of books including Holy Cows and Hog Heaven, Everything I Want to Do Is Illegal, You Can Farm, Pastured Poultry Profit$, and Family Friendly Farming, and in 2011: Folks, This Aint Normal.

In this video he speaks with Nick Ritar at Milkwood Farm about how young farmers can get started, and gives some wise advice about how to move forward without massive investment that might backfire.

Don't get into debt! Use your creativity to shepherd your nest egg. Involve yourself with the community, and figure out how you can help each other. Does some one have a machine you might want to use, or an outlet to sell some produce in town?

We would all do well to listen to the man. He is indeed a farmer. From the website of his Polyface Farm in Virginia: "We are in the redemption business: healing the land, healing the food, healing the economy, and healing the culture. Experience the satisfaction of knowing your food and your farmer, building community."
