Joel Salatin, self-described Christian libertarian environmentalist capitalist lunatic farmer, shares visceral practice and visionary pragmatism based on his half century of faith and family farming experience. The Salatin family’s current four generations living on the farm is testament to a legacy of profitability and personal relationships. In this two-day workshop, he not only shares information about production and profit but also techniques for
working together harmoniously within the family and beyond. Profit margins, unorthodox compensation, and team building are all part of this eclectic presentation.
We are excited to host Joel Salatin for a 2 day intensive.
The focus will be on Healthy living through Faith, Family and Farming. Through the last year we've seen how crazy the world can get when it separates family, and just how important it is to have an understanding of how we can work now to help heal this generation for the future of this earth.
The time is now! Let's learn how to bring everything back to the basics of Farming, Family and Faith

MORNING SESSIONS: The first session is a general introduction to the financial considerations and opportunities for running a family farm as a business. The second session includes the first of three virtual tours of Polyface Farms as Joel discusses forestry, composting, and “Salad Bar Beef” in detail.
AFTERNOON SESSIONS: The afternoon sessions complete the virtual tour of Polyface Farms. Joel will discuss the details of raising pigs, chicken, rabbits, and sheep. These two sessions will also include seasonal considerations for livestock, water systems, chicken housing and egg production, and sales infrastructure and collaboration.
MORNING SESSIONS: The first half will be about building business relationships in your family, including structuring expectations and compensation. This will also focus on team-building within your family by recognizing individual strengths/weaknesses and establishing a mission statement. The second half will focus more on the business analysis of the family farm: time and motion studies, gross margin analysis, individualized project value, shared risk, and compensation packages.
AFTERNOON SESSIONS: The two afternoon sessions will focus on marketing. Subjects covered will include craft vs commodity, creating a brand, identifying patrons and sales venues, pricing, bundling, and handling growth gracefully.
