So many books I have read over the years have been written by people who have had ideas, but have not proved them out. Joel Salatin has done both. The practical advice is interwoven with his own experiences resulting in an entertaining and informative read. His philosophy allows for the humane and dignified care of animals and property, while still increasing profits and production.

Mr. Salatin offers concrete advice on how to stretch our thinking into creative and diversified farming opportunities. He encourages the reader to maximize on space and minimize labor and costs. He pushes the reader out of linear farm thinking into a refreshing 3 dimensional approach. This is the way farming was meant to be enjoyed.
