Joel Salatin InterviewsSaturday, August 27, 2011
Over at Robb Wolf’s blog there is a great string of blogs going up from a contributing blogger and real foodist, Amber Karnes. Amber has put up interesting video interviews of driving and chatting with Joel Salatin. Parts I and II are up.
Note in Part II where Joel talks about a “scale” rating individual consumer participation in terms of food lifestyle. While talking about how to turn folks from the Gods of Food Convenience to moving up the scale of the real food lifestyle, Salatin discusses (1) market hurdles to penetration and (2) approximating the status quo so as to make the real food lifestyle more favorable for consumers. Great stuff. The reason I mention this is that I am working on an article – a rather long piece – on how I live outside of the industrial food machine, and what folks can do to “get there.” I have some friends and co-works who have piggybacked on my efforts and are starting to get it. So it was time to write about it. Salatin’s discussion of similar ideas fits in nicely with my upcoming piece.
