Joel Salatin addresses farmers, researchers and students at Cornell University in 2007.
Joel Salatin is a farmer, author and speaker featured in Michael Pollan's book "The Omnivore's Dilemma". Mr. Salatin is one of America's premier innovative farmers raising grass-fed livestock using farming methods that mimic nature. Polyface Farm, whose mission is "To develop agricultural prototypes that are environmentally, economically and emotionally enhancing and facilitate their duplication throughout the world," attracts visitors from distant corners of the globe. Mr. Salatin has pioneered models for raising and processing cattle, pork, and rabbits and has inspired numerous family farmers to adopt his techniques.
