Farming with the cycles of plants, animals and the seasons
Farming Beyond the Barcode
Barbara is in Eugene this week for the Food Justice Conference (check out last week's Locus Focus to learn more about this event), so we're re-running a Locus Focus episode from November 2009 that features, Joel Salatin, farmer, food choice advocate and dream-doer, who runs Polyface Farm in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. Joel, Barbara and Willamette Valley farmer Clare Carver (of Big Table Farm in Gaston) discuss the sustainable agricultural methods Joel and Clare practice, based on polyculture and the interweaving roles of farm animals and crops.
