I'm thrilled to share a conversation about food, farming, and getting back in the kitchen — with Joel Salatin, self-proclaimed “Christian, libertarian, environmentalist, capitalist, lunatic Farmer”.
This is part 2 of 2. You can find part 1 here.
In this half, we talk about what you should be doing in your backyard, the new Polyface Primer DVD series, and strategies for thinking outside the box to accomplish beyond organic farming.
Get to know Joel Salatin through the links and information below, and of course through this podcast. Plus… the tip of the week!

Tip of the Week: Cooking Outside
In the podcast, I talk about how I'm beating the heat and cooking outside (using barbecue, roaster oven, crockpot) plus other options for cooking outside — like a solar oven. Click here to read more about solar cooking.
Today's question comes from Heather R.:
“What should we be doing in our backyards?”
You'll find Joel's answer for Heather in the podcast!
Polyface Primer: Pigs-N-Glens
This is the trailer for the first episode of Polyface Primer video series, where Joel and his team get hands on in video teaching and examples. You'll love it!
