Alternative Farmer, Author and Presenter
“Folks, This Ain’t Normal” Tuesday, Jan. 31, 7:30 p.m. Sweet Briar College Memorial Chapel Joel Salatin, whose Polyface Farm and “beyond-organic” agricultural methods have been featured prominently in books, movies and numerous national publications, will speak on his latest book, “Folks, This Ain’t Normal.” The book is a humorous but informative look at the serious subject of where commercial foods come from and why we shouldn’t eat most of them. Polyface Farm, located in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, produces salad bar beef, pigaerator pork, pastured poultry and forage-based rabbits and direct-markets everything to 4,000 families, 40 restaurants and 10 retail outlets. The farm is featured prominently in Michael Pollan’s NYT bestseller “Omnivore’s Dilemma” and the awardwinning documentary, Food Inc. Book signing following evening lecture. Books featured below will be available for purchase.
Salatin also will present “The Sheer Ecstasy of Being a Lunatic Farmer” at noon in the 1948 Theater.
