Text Quotes
Earthworms will dance  (Joel Salatin Quotes) It’s a foolish culture that entrusts its food supply to simpletons  (Joel Salatin Quotes) Know you food, know your farmers, and know your kitchen. Start building up your larder! We don’t even use that term any more.  (Joel Salatin Quotes) We’ve created a tenfold core value protocol to make sure that we don’t fall into an ‘empire’ attitude.  (Joel Salatin Quotes) We control health and pathogenicity by complex multi-speciated relationships through symbiosis and synergy. Portable shelters for livestock, along with electric fencing, insure hygienic and sanitary housing and lounging areas, not to mention clean air, sunshine, and exercise.  (Joel Salatin Quotes) Don’t you find it odd that people will put more work into choosing their mechanic or house contractor than they will into choosing the person who grows their food?  (Joel Salatin Quotes) God doesn’t just miraculously and physically intervene in the whole process, so if I just go and drop a bunch of chemicals and herbicides that leach into the groundwater, I can pray all day to keep my child healthy, but if the herbicides gone into the groundwater come up my well, my child’s going to drink that water.  (Joel Salatin Quotes) From my earliest memories, I loved the farm. My grandfather was a charter subscriber to Rodale’s Organic Gardening and Farming Magazine and had a huge, well kept garden with an octagonal chicken house in the corner.  (Joel Salatin Quotes) Industrial agriculture, because it depends on standardization, has bombarded us with the message that all pork is pork, all chicken is chicken, eggs eggs, even though we all know that can’t really be true.  (Joel Salatin Quotes) Our main deal is pastured livestock. So we have beef cattle, pigs, turkeys, laying chickens, meat chickens, rabbit, lamb and ducks - egg-layer ducks.  (Joel Salatin Quotes) A pig has a plow on the end of its nose because it does meaningful work with it. It is built to dig and create soil disturbance, something it can’t do in a concentrated feeding environment. The omnivore has historically been a salvage operation for food scraps around the homestead.  (Joel Salatin Quotes) What we’re looking at is God’s design, nature’s template, and using that as a pattern to cut around and lay it down on a domestic model to duplicate that pattern that we see in nature.  (Joel Salatin Quotes) I want people to think through issues. I’m just tired of blind alignment.  (Joel Salatin Quotes) The average person is still under the aberrant delusion that food should be somebody else’s responsibility until I’m ready to eat it.  (Joel Salatin Quotes) Choose to patronise your local farmers; as eaters, you need to demand a different type of food. Appreciate the pigginess of the pig.  (Joel Salatin Quotes) If every American for one week refused to eat at a fast-food joint, it would bring concentrated animal feeding operations to their knees.  (Joel Salatin Quotes) Gluten intolerance and celiac disease are direct results of American agriculture policy and, specifically, the government’s wading into the food arena.  (Joel Salatin Quotes) The industrial food system is so cruel and so horrific in its treatment of animals. It never asks the question: Should a pig be allowed to express its pig-ness?  (Joel Salatin Quotes) It’s as if the whole notion of growing soil is something only lunatics would think about. But why not grow soil? Does anything make more sense than growing soil? Isn’t that more important than tractors, trucks, silos, barns, county fairs and country music? Of course it is. And yet to the lion’s share of American farmers, the very notion of growing soil is just plain silly  (Joel Salatin Quotes) You know, in our culture today, our Western, reductionist, Roman, linear, fragmented... culture, we don’t ask how to make a pig happy. We ask how to grow it faster, fatter, bigger, cheaper, and that’s not a noble goal  (Joel Salatin Quotes) The shorter the chain between raw food and fork, the fresher it is and the more transparent the system is.  (Joel Salatin Quotes) You can’t have a healthy civilization without healthy soil. You can’t have junk food and have healthy people.  (Joel Salatin Quotes) I’m incredibly optimistic about what individuals can do. We have technology that our grandparents would have given their eye teeth for.  (Joel Salatin Quotes) We will never sell or have an IPO. What that does is suddenly flushes you with cash. It makes you now work for a group of stockholders, who, again, put pressure and temptations on your true-blueness.  (Joel Salatin Quotes) How many of us lobby for green energy or protected lands, but don’t engage with the local bounty to lay by for tomorrow’s unseasonal reality? That we tend to not even think about this as a foundation for solutions in our food systems shows how quickly we want other people to solve these issues.  (Joel Salatin Quotes) We’re scared to death to try new things because we think we have to get it right the first time.  (Joel Salatin Quotes) We can produce more per acre on a fifth of the fuel as the industrial food system  (Joel Salatin Quotes) The mechanical food system externalizes a lot of costs like obesity or Type 2 diabetes  (Joel Salatin Quotes) Our biggest fear is that ‘Food, Inc.’ will move heavy-handed food-safety regulations forward.  (Joel Salatin Quotes) There’s a big difference between industrializing production of tractors and industrializing production of food. We like technology, but we really like technology that allows us to do better what nature does itself.  (Joel Salatin Quotes)
