Food for thought! The Lunatic Farmer - Joel Salatin
This may be a stretch for some of us, but it is good food for thought. I think that Joel has a good point, his understanding of agriculture was held by nearly all American farmers up till the late 50's. There are still a few old men that farmed pre-1960's that tell me about how for generations they farmed. Don't get me wrong, I appreciate some of the modern progresses in machinery and other tools that make things easier today, but we have forsaken most of the attributes that made America great for so many years. Some being a strong family unit, things done with integrity, less regulation/legislation, hard work and stewardship vs. environmental extremism.
