Family Friendly Farming by Joel Salatin
Family Friendly Farming: A Multigenerational Home-Based Business Testament by Joel Salatin
The butcher, baker, and candlestick maker have been around a lot longer than supermarkets and Walmart--Joel Salatin
Joel Salatin, farmer, writer, philosopher, entrepreneur, and Eatwild supplier (Polyface Farms in Virginia), is one of a kind. In this book he shares his solutions to what he feels are key issues facing the American public:
- The brightest and best young people flee farming, creating an old codger, country bumpkin, redneck farmer stereotype.
- The precious rural landscape is not cared for by passionate stewards, which leaves its care in the hands of "developers."
- Food is amalgamated, extruded, irradiated, consolidated, chlorinated, and genetically prostituted, jeopardizing our health and the health of our children and grandchildren.
- Electronic cubicles at the ends of expressways rarely fulfill deep human yearnings for heritage, legacy and family camaraderie.
Family Friendly Farming offers hope for stressed families, dissatisfied employees, and hurried-harried lifestyles. Based on his love affair with good farming, Joel Salatin's principles apply to all entrepreneurial family businesses.
