As the world is waking up to the government and big box corporations controlling the food system, many people are looking to become more sustainable on their own food sources (farming, local, farm fresh, growing their own, co-ops, etc) and LESS dependent on Amazon (and Tyson and Costco) to supply their families needs.
Enter this POWERFUL conversation with the OG FARMER, Joel Salatin of Poly Face Farms.
His family has been farming and living sustainably off their land in Virginia since the 60's (way before locally grown and raised and mason jars was "cool" but when it was the only way to provide sustenance).
He's been speaking out about the dysfunctional food system for decades and I had the chance to get his edgy and rebellious opinions on today's episode.
So many good freaking nuggets including...
Fake meat/fake food and how much of the food on the grocery shelves is "empty" meaning a chemical shit storm and zero nutrition (most of it created in a lab)Micro-farming (how to grow your own food even in small spaces/places)The Food Pyramid/My Healthy Plate nonsense Taking back your power and making things simpleStop asking for permission! (You'll see what this means towards the end of the show)+ Tons moreGo ahead and give this a listen and see what it inspires you to grow, do or experience. :)
