Joel Salatin: Beyond-Organic Farming, Food Policy, and Why There is POOP in Your Chicken Nuggets

Joel Salatin on The Fat-Burning Man Show

I am very blessed to be here today with a guest who has been requested from all over the world, Mr. Joel Salatin. Joel is a self-described “Christian-libertarian-environmentalist-capitalist-lunatic-farmer” who produces beyond-organic meats, which are raised using environmentally responsible, ecologically beneficial and sustainable agriculture.

Before we get to the show, I wanted to let you guys know about a really cool project that we have coming up in the next few weeks. It’s called “The Fat-Burning Chef.” Basically we  went out to all of our friends, some of the top bloggers and authors in the cooking space of the Paleo-sphere and beyond and asked if they’d contribute to help build a book of healthy recipes! That’s coming out in the next few weeks, and if you’d like to hear more you can follow me on Facebook, or be sure to sign up for my updates by just entering your email below!

  • Whether or not beyond-organic farming practices are scaleable on a world-wide scale
  • Why American food policy is favorable to products that make us fat and sick
  • And why there is POOP in your chicken nuggets

Here’s the show.

  1. The Joel Salatin podcast was awesome and amazing. So much great information. After I listened, I went to Joel’s farm’s website and found a couple local farms that I will now be buying meat from. Keep up the good work.

  2. I just wanted to compliment you on your presentation of June 6 at the Travis Building – Wellness Program. Great information! Definitely inspired me to make some changes with my diet and eating habits!!

  3. Whether you like grains or not as a food source, whole grains have plenty of valuable nutrients as their supply of B vitamins alone is impressive.
    Farmer Salatin should really stick to what he knows best and stay far away from giving nutritional tips as his comment about the vegan diet and the lack of EFA’s is worthy of his name, “Lunatic.”
    However, the rest of the podcast was great as I just visited my first organic farm last week.
