Joel Salatin, the most famous farmer in the world, is joining us for the fourth event in the Dumbo Feather Conversation Series on Tuesday 23 October.
“For the folks who say farming can’t be profitable or enjoyable or that farming inherently destroys the ecology, I look forward to opening your eyes to a brand new world of opportunities. I heard an old saying, "If someone has done it, then it can be done”. I encourage anyone whose spirit resonates with these goals to come and join in the conversation,“ says Joel Salatin.
Joel will chat with modern day hunter-gatherer Rohan Anderson (Whole Larder Love), who is featured in our upcoming issue.
“Joel is a beacon of hope for so many in the agricultural industry looking for something real, and more natural. He’s an inspiration for all of us as food consumers, to question our daily food choices. To have been invited to host the conversation with Joel is a real mindblowing honour for me. I can’t wait to sit down and chat.” says Rohan Anderson.
The pair will discuss Joel’s radical farming methods—which have revolutionised the way thousands think about animals, produce and life. Having authored seven books and countless articles, Joel has empowered farmers the world-over to control their produce from paddock to plate.
