The Sheer Ecstacy of Being a Lunatic Farmer by Joel Salatin.

Joel's at it again. This book, published in 2010, explains in Joel's own words, both the rationale for and the satisfaction to be gained from a "solar-driven, pasture-based, locally-marketed, symbiotic, synergistic, relationally-oriented farm".

Joel Salatin's family farm, "Polyface," nestled in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley, has achieved iconic status worldwide from the focus it has received in the Grammy-nominated documentary, Food, Inc., the popular documentary Fresh and Michael Pollan's bestseller, Omnivore's Dilemma. This book describes, with stories and evangelical fervor, the breadth and depth of the paradigm differences between healing and exploitive food systems.

Read this book to learn why Joel Salatin is shunned by industrial farmers, vilified by corporate agri-business, stalked by food police as being a lunatic farmer—and ecstatically happy surrounded by frolicking animals, dancing earthworms, and appreciative customers. ©2010. Paperback. 315 pages.
