Something went wrong. Please try your request again later. Salatin raises livestock using holistic methods of animal husbandry, free of potentially harmful chemicals, on his Polyface Farm in Swoope, Virginia, in the Shenandoah Valley. Meat from the farm is sold by direct-marketing to consumers and restaurants. In high school, Salatin began his own business selling rabbits, eggs, butter and chicken from his family farm at the Staunton Curb Market.
He then attended Bob Jones University where he majored in English and was a student leader. He graduated in Salatin married his childhood sweetheart in and became a feature writer at the Staunton, Virginia newspaper, The News Leader, where he had worked earlier typing obituaries and police reports.
Tired of "having his stories spiked," he decided to try farming full-time after first getting involved in a walnut-buying station run by two high school boys. Rodale, the founder of regenerative organic gardening. They had raised cattle using organic methods, but could not make a living at farming alone. Salatin, a self-described "Christian-libertarian-environmentalist-capitalist-lunatic-Farmer" produces high-quality "beyond organic" meats, which are raised using environmentally responsible, ecologically beneficial, sustainable agriculture.
He is just looking totally afresh at how to maximize production in an integrated system on a holistic farm. Salatin now spends a hundred days a year lecturing at colleges and to environmental groups.
