Joel Salatin is a full-time farmer in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. A third generation alternative farmer, he returned to the farm full-time in 1982 and continued refining and adding to his parents' ideas. He holds a BA degree in English and writes extensively in magazines such as Stockman Grass Farmer, Acres USA, and American Agriculturalist. A sought-after conference speaker, Joel addresses a wide range of issues, from 'creating the farm your children will want' to 'making a white collar salary from a pleasant life in the country.'
