Drawing upon 40 years experience as an ecological farmer and marketer, Joel Salatin explains with humor and passion why Americans do not have the freedom to choose the food they purchase and eat. From child labor regulations to food inspection, bureaucrats provide themselves sole discretion over what food is available in the local marketplace. Their system favors industrial, global corporate food systems and discourages community-based food commerce, resulting in homogenized selection, mediocre quality, and exposure to non-organic farming practices. Salatins expert insight explains why local food is expensive and difficult to find and will illuminate for the reader a deeper understanding of the industrial food complex.

Joel Salatin is a farmer at the forefront of the trend toward local food and grass-fed meat. His Polyface Farm has been featured in Smithsonian magazine, National Geographic, Gourmet, and countless other radio, television, and print outlets. When he was profiled on the "Lives of the 21st Century" series with Peter Jennings on ABC World News, his after-broadcast chat room fielded more hits than any other segment to date. Polyface Farm achieved iconic status when it was featured in theNew York Times bestseller The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan and the award-winning film documentary, Food, Inc. Salatin is also the author of eight books, including Everything I Want to Do is Illegal, Holy Cows and Hog Heaven, and Folks, This Ain't Normal.
