This thrilling episode features America's favorite farmer, Joel Salatin! Joel has literally revolutionized farming with his incredible books including Folks, This Ain't Normal; You Can Farm; and Everything I Want to do is Illegal. You may also recognize him from the documentary, Food Inc.

HE is truly unstoppable force in the sustainable food movement.

The best part is, he's just as articulate and entertaining as he is informative. In fact, he calls himself a lunatic farmer.

Believe me, you don't want to miss it. Especially if you've ever been told that the Paleo diet (brimming with its grass fed meats) is not sustainable.

Joel wholeheartedly disagrees.

In today's show you'll also learn:

  • Why Joel refuses to ship his product more than 4 hours from his farm
  • Why he has an open door policy and sign that reads "trespassers will be impressed."
  • Why it's important to let cows express their cowness
  • How a world-class & trail blazing, sustainable farm operates
  • How you can support farmers who are doing right by the planet AND your health
