Humor and agrarian insight ensue when a self-described “lunatic farmer” tries to prove he’s the only sane one left on the farm. Joel Salatin of Polyface Farms will make you grin at the absurdity of the modern world, in particular our corporate food production system. Salatin recounts his family’s multigenerational battles to grow chemical-free food and raise, sell, and eat unmedicated pastured animals. Salatin uses personal experience to reveal the collusion between factory farms and the USDA, who jointly stomp out most agricultural competition. Salatin soars when discussing agricultural politics or imparting practical knowledge—like how to best gather firewood or pasture chickens. He’s less successful when ranting against taxes, health care, and environmentalist “greenies.” J.T. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2012]
