About Joel Salatin
Joel Salatin 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.
With a room full of debate trophies from high school and college days, 12 published books, and a thriving multi-generational family farm, he draws on a lifetime of food, farming, and fantasy to entertain and inspire audiences around the world. He’s as comfortable moving cows in a pasture as addressing CEOs in a Wall Street business conference.
On his family farm in the Shenandoah Valley, Polyface Farms, Joel produces meat he describes as “beyond organic”, which is raised using what the farm describes as environmentally responsible, ecologically beneficial, sustainable agriculture.
All his life, Joel made $10,000 mistakes. Those were big hits, and he doesn’t want you to have to repeat his mistakes. He is excited to bring you a course that drills down into the philosophies and the practices that will make you successful in your own homesteading/farmsteading venture. In his video lessons, he reveals the essential elements of success. These things will keep your homestead venture from becoming a drain and let you enjoy that journey in full encouragement, inspiration, and continuing excitement day-to-day even into years 10, 20, and 30. That’s the legacy Joel wants to leave and that’s what he covers in the course.
