Last week, we posted info about a movie, Food Inc, by filmmaker Rober Kenner which uses, as one of it’s many experts, Michael Pollan. Pollan authored The Omnivore’s Dillema (among other books) which discusses the food industry and choices we, as humans, have for food sources. In The Omnivore’s Dillema, Pollan references Joe Salatin of Polyface Farms in Staunton, VA. Joe is a remarkably well-spoken (English major) grass-fed farmer. He believes, truly, in ecological, grass-based farming. Here is a clip of him and his farm from USA Today that summarizes how he does business. He delivers to a co-op in Williamsburg. We will check out putting together a group order for him and keep you updated.
