I liked Joel in Food Inc and I totally agree with his farming philosophy, but he's getting WAY too self righteous and pretentious lately. Pretty unlistenable.

"If we devote ourselves to sacredness in our vocations the world will rise to meet us."

That quote is so powerful and inspiring...

Awesome and awe-inspiring. Returning sacredness and nobility to life would benefit us all. How wonderful that we have it in our power to do! I'm gonna be a noble kitchen-cleaner today.

I really like Salatin's message and the way he delivers it. He has a lot of charisma and eloquence.

Thank God he does what he does for who he does it, instead of working for Monsanto or something.

Jenna, I just saw the most amazing video on youtube that you would love! It's called "Extreme Shepherding" and it absolutely fantastic. Here is the link http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2FX9rviEhw

I loved him in Food Inc and Omnivores Dilemma. He is normally so calm and eloquent that it was weird to hear him stumble over his words at the beginning. Great video thanks. I wish some local farmers near me would embrace hi philosophy so I could stop eating essence of Tofu.

I just about fell over when I got further in your book and read the words "Kutztown" and "Bethlehem"...I live in BEthlehem and go to KU for grad school. Small world!

I love Joel Salatin. To some he is radical but he is living his philosophy. You can't argue with that. We, who are farming on the small scale but sustainably, have to preach the message. Every day there are more converts to the mantra "know your farmer".

I love listening to Joel Salatin. It really helps me recenter myself on what's really important.

Jenna,

Thanks for posting this.
Your blog, and Joel Salatin have been inspirations for me. I have now decided to become a farmer. I come from an urban, elitist family, but I am going back to the land.

I've been writing a blog, at
