- HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE
Twenty years ago Joel Salatin wrote You Can Farm, which has launched thousands of farm entrepreneurs around the world. In those 20 years, Salatin’s Polyface Farm progressed from a small family operation to a 20-person, 6,000-customer, 50-restaurant business, all without sales targets, government grants, or an off-farm nest egg. With these two decades’ worth of experience as a full-time farmer under his belt, Saladin has decided to build on that foundation with a sequel to his original book, thereby providing readers a graduate-level curriculum.
Everyone who reads and enjoys You Can Farm will benefit from this additional information. Located in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, Polyface Farm serves as a germination tray for new farmers ready to take over the 50 percent of America's agricultural equity that will become available over the next two decades. The farm stands as a beacon of hope in a food and farming system that’s floundering in dysfunction: toxicity, pathogenicity, nutrient deficiency, bankruptcy, geezers, and erosion. Speaking to that fear and confusion, Salatin offers a pathway to success, with production, profit, and pleasure thrown in for good measure.
