Joel Salatin, Farmer, Polyface Farms
Joel was inspired to farm from his Father and his Father’s Father. He began by raising chickens to sell their eggs. From there he and his wife, Teresa have established a remarkable example of sustainable farming with Polyface Farms. Joel is an educator, and advocate and a defender of the planet. His methods are simple in some ways, but ingenious and revolutionary in other ways.
