Matt Kibbe sits down with self-described Lunatic Farmer Joel Salatin and Rep. Thomas Massie to talk about the food shortages Americans are experiencing as a result of the coronavirus lockdown. The complex interactions that allow food to make it from farm to table have been disrupted by central planners who think they know better, with disastrous results. Rep. Massie has introduced legislation to help fix the problem, but as long as the lockdowns continue, the food supply will suffer.

Joel Salatin has hope for a post-COVID regenerative agri-culture

The Abundant Edge
Episode artwork
Read more
My guest today needs little introduction. Joel Salatin has been one of the most prominent voices in regenerative agriculture for many years now and I thought he’d be the perfect person to not only kick off this new series on regenerative agriculture, but also for his optimistic perspective on the future we are collectively heading into as our countries continue to grapple with the social and economic costs of the COVID-19 pandemic and its response. 
Though I had always planned to speak with Joel about the future and opportunities in regenerative farming in the US and around the world, I had no idea just how relevant these topics would be as we find ourselves questioning the future of just about every industry and its environmental impact at this unique moment in history. Though many of us are looking at the bleak predictions for the world economy and all the other looming catastrophes that involve everything from our environment to the food supply system, we are also seeing an unprecedented review of priorities and focus. 
In this episode Joel and I discuss how this crisis has affected the farming industry at large but also the incredible impact it’s had on small local farmers. He tells me how he can see this event as a blessing if it’s managed correctly and if we use it as one. Joel also gives details about how his own farm is adapting to the restrictions and finding opportunities to bring his community closer and connect them with other local producers in their area. We also muse over the likely changes that our culture will experience for a long time in the wake of this and what the good and worrisome aspects likely are. In the end though, I left this chat feeling inspired and much more optimistic than I was before and I hope that’s how you feel by the end too.

Joel Salatin and Jesus, the Christian Testimony of the Lunatic Farmer

The Redeeming the Dirt Podcast
Episode artwork
Read more

Some have called him the most famous and influential farmer of our day. Renowned worldwide for his innovation in regenerative land stewardship and animal husbandry, Joel Salatin is a household name among small farmers, foodies, and health conscious families. Many of us who are now tending the land owe our inspiration to the writing and speaking of this faithful farmer. A self described 'Christian libertarian environmentalist capitalist lunatic farmer', Mr. Salatin speaks most often to environmentally conscious crowds who would in no way describe themselves as Christians. But his genuine and down to earth relationship with Jesus has enabled him to show love to people as a simple farmer in a way that has opened doors normally shut to those who are vocal about their faith in God. In this insightful interview Joel shares about his personal testimony, how his faith impacts his farming, and how Christian farmers can be more effective in shining the light of Christ.

This Aint Normal – Joel Salatin - Farm To Table Talk

Farm To Table Talk
Episode artwork
Read more

‘This aint normal’ is frequently said today and was the title of a 2011 book by the all-american farmer philosopher, Joel Salatin.  It has led to the most popular question in the world today “when will we get back to normal?’  When it comes to our food system the answer is “maybe never” and that could be best. Joel Salatin, his family and team at Polyface Farm in Virginia are creating a new normal for themselves and their farmer partners.  When their restaurant customers were forced to close in response to the Corona Virus pandemic, they created a local farm drive thru venture. Consumers place orders on line and then drive thru to pick up the locally produced animal protein and produce. Sales have skyrocketed as up to 300 cars line up to pick up customers’ prepaid orders. Joel Salatin sees this as a huge opportunity for farmers and consumers all over the country. It aint normal now but there can be better normals ahead.

Joel Salatin on Farming, Experience and Mastery.

The Permaculture Podcast
Episode artwork
Read more

Joel Salatin shares his thoughts on farming, the importance of experience, and the role of mastery over ourselves and our chosen discipline.

Click here to download the episode. | Open Player in New Window

These topics layout the major themes of the conversation that follows but touch only on the barest of the depth you’ll hear. Together  Joel and I explore land access for new farmers, living frugally,  agriculture based on skilled people, mentoring and apprenticeship, the nature of wisdom, and what it means to be well-read and with it well rounded: to be an interesting conversationalist with something to say and a provocative way to say it, so others find us and our message appealing.

I left this conversation thinking about the personal changes we can make now to become experts in our chosen field and how that serves as a model for others that continues the change that already began. Eventually, that daily change becomes the future we cannot imagine for generations to come.

Joel Salatin calls himself a ‘Christian libertarian environmentalist capitalist lunatic farmer’. Others who like him call him the most famous farmer in the world, the high priest of the pasture, and the most eclectic thinker from Virginia since Thomas Jefferson. Those who don’t like him call him a bio-terrorist, Typhoid Mary, charlatan, and starvation advocate.

With a room full of debate trophies from high school and college days, twelve published books, and a thriving multi-generational family farm, he draws on a lifetime of food, farming and fantasy to entertain and inspire audiences around the world. He’s as comfortable moving cows in a pasture as he is addressing CEOs in a Wall Street business conference. 

A wordsmith and master communicator, he prefers to describe his lectures as word performance rather than presentation, and moves audiences from laughs one minute to tears the next, from frustration to hopefulness, often receiving standing ovations. He prefers the word ‘performance’ rather than ‘presentation’ to describe his lectures. His favorite activity?–Q&A. “I love the interaction,” he says.

He co-owns, with his family, Polyface Farm in Swoope, Virginia. The farm, which was featured in the New York Times bestseller Omnivore’s Dilemma and award-winning documentary Food Inc. and The Magic Pill.

In this episode, Joel will share with us:

  • the importance of nurturing the soil, and the farming practices that best do this
  • the environmental cost of farming animals versus that of growing monocrops
