Farmer and author Joel Salatin believes America’s children and teens are losing the work ethic that made this country great, but he has a solution for it.
Salatin says too many children grow up laying around or merely “playing” until adulthood, failing to gain the necessary skills and drive they will need later in life.
Salatin is this week’s guest on Off The Grid Radio, and he shares with us what his grandchildren are doing today that will benefit them when they reach adulthood.
The owner of the famous “beyond organic” Polyface Farm in Virginia, Salatin also tell us:
- How child labor laws have harmed America.
- What parents can do to help get their children “back to nature.”
- Why he is so passionate about apprenticeship programs.
The wide-ranging interview also covers Salatin’s unique version of organic farming, his thoughts on GMO crops, and what he sees as the future of the food industry. He also tells us why his company won’t ship products just anywhere.
Salatin has been featured on documentaries such as Food Inc. and Fresh and is one of America’s top experts on farming, hard work and the American “way of life.” Listen as he tells it like it is – all while giving us an encouraging message.
