Drawing upon years experience as an ecological farmer and marketer Joel Salatin explains with humor and passion why Americans do not have the freedom to choose the food they purchase and eat From child labor regulations to food inspection bureaucrats provide themselves sole discretion over what food is available in the local marketplace Their system favors industrial global corporate food systems and discourages community based food commerce resulting in homogenized selection mediocre quality and exposure to non organic farming practices Salatin s expert insight explains why local food is expensive and difficult to find and will illuminate for the reader a deeper understanding of the industrial food complex, b From Christian libertarian farmer Joel Salatin a clarion call to readers to honor the animals and the land and produce food based on spiritual principles b br What on earth is THE MARVELOUS PIGNESS OF PIGS It s an inspiring call to action for people of faith a heartfelt plea to heed the Bible s guidance br It s an important and thought provoking explanation of how by simply appreciating the marvelous pigness of pigs we are celebrating the Glory of God br As a man of deep faith and student of the Bible and as a respected and successful ecological family farmer Joel Salatin knows that God created heaven and earth and meant for all living organisms to be true to their nature and their endowed holy purpose He intended for us to respect and care for His gift of creation not to ravage and mistreat it for our own pleasure or wealth br The example that inspires the book s title explains what Salatin means when huge corporate farms confine pigs in cramped and dark pens inject them with antibiotics and feed them herbicide saturated food simply to increase profits they are not respecting them as a creation of God or allowing them to express even their most rudimentary uniqueness that special role that is part of His design Every living organism has a God given uniqueness to its life that must be honored and respected and too often that is not happening today br Salatin shows us the long overlooked ethics and instructions in the Bible for how to eat how to shop how to think about how we farm and feed the world Through scripture and Biblical stories he shows us why it s more vital than ever to look to the good book rather than corporate America when feeding the country and your family br Salatin makes a compelling case for Christian stewardship of the earth and how it relates to every action we take regarding our food He also opens our eyes to a common misconception many Christians may have about environmentalism it s not a bad thing and definitely not just the province of secular liberals it s really a very good thing part of heeding God s Word br With warmth and with humor but with no less piercing criticism of the industrial food complex Salatin brings readers on a fascinating journey of farming food and faith Readers will not say grace over their plates the same way ever again, America s average farmer is sixty years old When young people can t get in old people can t get out Approaching a watershed moment our culture desperately needs a generational transfer of millions of farm acres facing abandonment development or amalgamation into ever larger holdings Based on his decades of experience with interns and multigenerational partnerships at Polyface Farm farmer and author Joel Salatin digs deep into the problems and solutions surrounding this land and knowledge transfer crisis This book empowers aspiring young farmers midlife farmers and nonfarming landlords to build regenerative profitable agricultural enterprises, Foodies and environmentally minded folks often struggle to understand and articulate the fundamental differences between the farming and food systems they endorse and those promoted by Monsanto and friends With visceral stories and humor from Salatin s half century as a lunatic farmer Salatin contrasts the differences on many levels practical spiritual social economic ecological political and nutritional br br In today s conventional food production paradigm any farm that is open sourced compost fertilized pasture based portably infrastructured solar driven multi speciated heavily peopled and soil building must be operated by a lunatic Modern normal reasonable farmers erect No Trespassing signs deplete soil worship annuals apply petroleum based chemicals produce only one commodity erect Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations and discourage young people from farming br br Anyone looking for ammunition to defend a more localized solar driven diversified food system will find an entire arsenal in these pages With wit and humor honed during countless hours working on the farm he loves and then interacting with conventional naysayers Salatin brings the land to life farming to sacredness and food to ministry br br Divided into four main sections the first deals with principles to nurture the earth an idea mainline farming has never really endorsed The second section describes food and fiber production including the notion that most farmers don t care about nutrient density or taste because all they want is shipability and volume The third section titled Respect for Life presents an apologetic for food sacredness and farming as a healing ministry Only lunatics would want less machinery and pathogenicity Oh the ecstasy of not using drugs or paying bankers How sad The final section deals with promoting community including the notion that more farmers would be a good thing br br
