Joel Salatin is the owner of Polyface Farms in Swoope, Virginia and has been featured in the New York Times Bestselling book, Omnivore's Dilemma and the award-winning documentary Food Inc. He calls himself a Christian libertarian environmentalist capitalist lunatic farmer. Others who like him call him the most famous farmer in the world, the high priest of the pasture, and the most eclectic thinker from Virginia since Thomas Jefferson. Those who don’t like him call him a bio-terrorist, Typhoid Mary, charlatan, and starvation advocate.

So if you've been wondering whether or not grass-fed beef is truly sustainable (or you just want to have a laugh), then DON'T miss this interview!
