I have a new hero – Joel Salatin.
Joel has 30 years experience of farming on Polyface Farms and he speaks with authority and so much good sense. He has designed out all the problems of animal rearing we typical expect when raising animals on a large scale – smell, overcrowding, disease, wastes…
He has lots of happy chickens, turkeys, cows and pigs. No fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides. No medicines (pharmaceuticals). No slurry or wastes.
And he gets multiple yields from his fields each season!!
MeetTheFarmer.com have made a very good program talking with him and investigating his farming techniques. Start on part 2 if you don’t want to listen to all the theory first (you’ll probably be so amazed by what you learn that you will watch part 1 anyway).
So good to hear about the possibilities. So sobering to hear about the opposition.
Thanks MeetTheFarmer.com for making and sharing the program. These three videos are so valuable!!
