Joel Salatin

lunatic farmer

Joel Salatin, 64, calls himself a Christian libertarian environmentalist capitalist lunatic farmer. Others who like him call him the most famous farmer in the world, the high priest of the pasture, and the most eclectic thinker from Virginia since Thomas Jefferson. Those who don’t like him call him a bio-terrorist, Typhoid Mary, charlatan, and starvation advocate.

The butcher, baker, and candlestick maker have been around a lot longer than supermarkets and Wal-Mart.

Neal Kinsey

agronomist

Neal Kinsey is a Soil Fertility Specialist, and has been consulting since 1973 after completing a program of study developed and taught by Dr. William A. Albrecht. Consultations include clients with small gardens up to large farms both conventional and no-till. The program is based on providing soil nutrients to correctly treat the soil and the plants that grow there, using soil chemistry to correct the soil’s physical structure to build the “house” for the biology to flourish. Neal has consulted in more than 75 countries.

By the time you can see a deficiency, it has already hurt you.
