b From Christian libertarian farmer Joel Salatin a clarion call to readers to honor the animals and the land and produce food based on spiritual principles b br What on earth is THE MARVELOUS PIGNESS OF PIGS It s an inspiring call to action for people of faith a heartfelt plea to heed the Bible s guidance br It s an important and thought provoking explanation of how by simply appreciating the marvelous pigness of pigs we are celebrating the Glory of God br As a man of deep faith and student of the Bible and as a respected and successful ecological family farmer Joel Salatin knows that God created heaven and earth and meant for all living organisms to be true to their nature and their endowed holy purpose He intended for us to respect and care for His gift of creation not to ravage and mistreat it for our own pleasure or wealth br The example that inspires the book s title explains what Salatin means when huge corporate farms confine pigs in cramped and dark pens inject them with antibiotics and feed them herbicide saturated food simply to increase profits they are not respecting them as a creation of God or allowing them to express even their most rudimentary uniqueness that special role that is part of His design Every living organism has a God given uniqueness to its life that must be honored and respected and too often that is not happening today br Salatin shows us the long overlooked ethics and instructions in the Bible for how to eat how to shop how to think about how we farm and feed the world Through scripture and Biblical stories he shows us why it s more vital than ever to look to the good book rather than corporate America when feeding the country and your family br Salatin makes a compelling case for Christian stewardship of the earth and how it relates to every action we take regarding our food He also opens our eyes to a common misconception many Christians may have about environmentalism it s not a bad thing and definitely not just the province of secular liberals it s really a very good thing part of heeding God s Word br With warmth and with humor but with no less piercing criticism of the industrial food complex Salatin brings readers on a fascinating journey of farming food and faith Readers will not say grace over their plates the same way ever again, In a day when beef is assailed by many environmental organizations and lauded by fast food chains a new paradigm to bring reason to this confusion is in order With farmers leaving the land in droves and plows poised to reclaim set aside acres it is time to offer an alternative that is both land and farmer friendly br br Beyond that the salad bar beef production model offers hope to rural communities to struggling row crop farmers and to frustrated beef eaters who do not want to encourage desertification air and water pollution environmental degradation and inhumane animal treatment Because this is a program weighted toward creativity management entrepreneurism and observation it breathes fresh air into farm economics, America s average farmer is sixty years old When young people can t get in old people can t get out Approaching a watershed moment our culture desperately needs a generational transfer of millions of farm acres facing abandonment development or amalgamation into ever larger holdings Based on his decades of experience with interns and multigenerational partnerships at Polyface Farm farmer and author Joel Salatin digs deep into the problems and solutions surrounding this land and knowledge transfer crisis This book empowers aspiring young farmers midlife farmers and nonfarming landlords to build regenerative profitable agricultural enterprises, Saving the landscape rebuilding entrepreneurial rural families and protecting nutritious food are the themes of this timeless treatise hence the word testament Delving into the soul of the Salatin family s nationally acclaimed Polyface Farm author Joel Salatin offers em Family Friendly Farming em as the key to dealing with resource issues food policy and social fabric br br With humor and personal stories he opens his family and farm convictions for all to see share and enjoy Written from his unabashed Christian libertarian environmentalist capitalist perspective his ideas are guaranteed to encourage and challenge virtually every ism in the culture It will captivate anyone passionate about healing the land healing families and healing the food supply br br For several decades young people have been leaving the family farm The ones left behind are now responsible for society s greatest resources clean land and clean food Anyone dedicated to preserving these resources will find in these pages a nongovernmental self empowerment approach to environmentalism and food safety br br The heart of this book is aimed toward parents tired of their Dilbert cubicle at the end of the expressway who want to reconnect with their children through a pastoral lifestyle It s written for anyone who yearns to grow old working with and being adored by value sharing grandchildren and honored by passionate productive adult children em Family Friendly Farming em can make any family business more viable and any family more functional br br The ten chapter section on how to get the kids to love the farm is an invaluable addition to any collection of child rearing manuals Salatin moves from the family team building section into a practical discussion on how to increase income per acre and create new white collar salaries without buying more land equipment or buildings He deals with the unique and thorny issues surrounding any family business by using his own multi generational family farm experience as his base for insight and wisdom
