Joel Salatin, 57, is a full-time farmer in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley. A third generation alternative farmer, he returned to the farm full-time in 1982 and continued refining and adding to his parents' ideas. The family farm, Polyface, achieved iconic status as the grass farm featured in Michael Pollan's New York Times bestseller 'Omnivore's Dilemma' and in the award-winning film documentary, 'Food Inc.'
