This week on Eat Your Words, host Cathy Erway is joined by Joel Salatin, a farmer, lecturer, and author who raises livestock using holistic management methods of animal husbandry, free of harmful chemicals, on his Polyface Farm in Swoope, Virginia, in the Shenandoah Valley. Meat from the farm is sold by direct-marketing to consumers and restaurants.

Salatin's latest book is THE MARVELOUS PIGNESS OF PIGS: Nurturing and Caring for All God's Creation, which tackles the tension between environmental and faith-based communities.
