The Ancestral Health Symposium has finally begun to roll out the videos of their lectures. You are about to be inundated with a ton of superbly presented information. I will spend the rest of the year giving you my thoughts, however brief and obtuse they may be, on a video or two a week. Hold on to your butts.
The first video is, naturally, the keynote speaker for this event, Joel Salatin, and the lecture I was most looking forward to on the first day. Mr. Salatin has featured prominently on this blog several times before on topics ranging from organic food quality to cult movements. He would tell you that he is not a pioneer in the “beyond organic” farming or soil/grass farming, but he is certainly the eminent farmer and author in these and many more respects.
I have had the pleasure of reading many of Salatin’s books. He has an infectious style that mirrors his in-person charisma perfectly. If this video piques your interest at all and you wanted to pick up one of his books, let me suggest Folks, This Ain’t Normal: A Farmer’s Advice for Happier Hens, Healthier People, and a Better World. As soon as Travis McCroskey finishes up with my copy, it will be available for check-out from the Scalf Family Library.
This is a long video. He speaks for the better part of 90 minutes. But he is a brilliant farmer with a degree in economics. He has been in the trenches of the war on food and the oppression of the FDA and USDA. He has firsthand experience with what conventional, monoculture farming is doing to our landscape and topsoil. If you were to only watch one video from this Symposium, I suggest it be this one.
Guess whose backs of heads also feature prominently in this video,
