Joel Salatin - Folks, This Ain't Normal
Joel Salatin presents Folks, This Ain't Normal: A Farmer's Advice for Happier Hens, Healthier People, and a Better World ($15.99). Virginia farmer Joel Salatin, hailed by The New York Times as "high priest of the pasture," has become the new voice of clean, local, healthy eating by urging people to take a better look at their food: What's in it, where is it coming from and how did it get the table? Whether praising the plusses of lawn farms and kitchen chickens to the dishing the dirt on Genetically Modified Foods and Tyson Chicken Farms, Salatin’s wit, wisdom, storytelling magic and down-home philosophy shines through on every page.
Joel Salatin is a third generation family farmer working his land in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley with his wife, Teresa, son Daniel, daughter Rachel and their families. The Salatin Polyface Farm, an organic grass-fed farm, services more than 3,000 families, 10 retail outlets and 50 restaurants through on-farm sales and metropolitan buying clubs — and was featured in the national bestseller The Omnivore’s Dilemma and in the Oscar-nominated documentary Food, Inc.
