FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
One of Americas most dynamic and innovative farmers will address the Fourth
Annual Mid-Atlantic Biodynamic Food and Farming Conference October 1-3 at
Claymont Court in Charles Town, West Virginia.
Promoting food production that is environmentally, emotionally and
economically enhancing for both producer and consumer, Joel Salatin is a
third generation organic farmer. His presentations about the familys
550-acre Shenandoah Valley farm continually receive standing ovations.
He has authored three books, You Can Farm, Pastured Poultry Profits and
Salad Bar Beef. His columns appear in Stockman Grass Farmer and Quit You
Like Men magazines.
A word craftsman and sought after conference speaker, Salatin describes his
diverse farm enterprises with ear-catching phrases, salad bar beef,
pastured poultry, pigaerator pork, pastured rabbits. And what he calls
relationship marketing to 400 cheerleaders gives him full retail dollars
for everything the farm produces. He 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.
Although his message is a decidedly positive one, it draws clear
distinctions between food produced in inhumane, factory farms and food
produced in pasture-based, animal friendly farms.
His presentations carry several themes: Let animals do the work, value
adding through marketing, diversity and multiple-use, organic matter, fully
utilizing resources before buying anything. Woven throughout his talk has a
strong consumer thrust: If you want an agriculture that does not pump
animals full of drugs and hormones, pollute the water, erode the soil and
stink up the air, vote with your pocketbook and quit patronizing the
conventional food industry seek out and support your local alternative
Each year the Mid-Atlantic Biodynamic Food and Farming Conference attracts
educators, natural farmers, and those interested in securing the quality of
their life, from all parts of globe to beautiful Claymont Court (a 350+
acres organic estate once owned by George Washington) to hear presentations
by national speakers on topics as diverse as natural gardening, child
behavior, soil life, dowsing and rain making.
