    Joel Salatin: Curing Society’s Constipation Of Imagination

    We can do things profoundly better
    by Adam Taggart

    Monday, May 22, 2017, 12:19 AM


    The always colorful "renegade farmer" Joel Salatin returns to the podcast this week to share his latest thoughts on creative yet practical solutions society could and should be pursuing vs limiting and litigating everything under the sun.

After all, if you go to the trouble to select the healthiest product and get the best butchering, you want to ensure the meals you make from it are prepared well, too.

    by Adam Taggart

    Sunday, December 18, 2016, 6:24 PM


    Over the past few years, we've tracked the success of Farmland LP, a family of funds created to increase the economic yield of farmland through sustainable farming practices.

So in that spirit, in this week's podcast, I check in with the founders of Farmland LP for an update on how the team has progressed on its mission in 2016. For the first time, we have Craig Wichner ("the numbers guy") joined by Jason Bradford ("the farming guy"), who provides much more detail than we've had in the past into the sustainable land-management practices Farmland LP employs to put the land to its best use.
