Last Nostalgia Lecture: Joel Salatin // Environmentalist Capitalist Farmer Author

salatin_suitWith a room full of debate trophies from high school and college days, ten published books, and a thriving multi-generational family farm, Joel Salatin draws on a lifetime of food, farming and fantasy to entertain and inspire audiences around the world. He’s as comfortable moving cows in a pasture as addressing CEOs in a Wall Street business conference.

In addition to being part of ADF’s NOSTALGIA lecture series, Joel Salatin of Polyface Farms (Virginia) will lead three distinct workshops and provide the keynote performance for our 3rd annual DINE BY DESIGN.

Advance ticket purchase/registration is recommended, as most of these events are expected to sell out.
