Joel Salatin, to Speak at APCC

by Slow Food Cape Cod on September 15, 2009

Joel Salatin,  America’s most influential farmer, is the guest speaker at the Association to Preserve Cape Cod’s 2009 Annual meeting! Tickets are free for members of the Association and $20.00 for non-members. Joel Salatin came on my radar when I read Michael Pollan’s book “Omnivore’s Dilemma”. In the book, Michael Pollan wanted to purchase meat products from the farm and have them shipped. He soon found out the only way to get  local food was to be in the area, since Joel did not ship product. This ended up with a trip to the farm, and a very engaging introduction to Joel’s farming methods. The book opened my eyes to farming and how important it is to know where/how our food is produced. I am SO, SO excited to hear him speak, he is the author of several books, the latest being “Everything I Want to Do is Illegal“.
