Joel Salatin calls himself a Christian libertarian environmentalist capitalist lunatic farmer. Others who like him call him the most famous farmer in the world, the high priest of the pasture, and the most eclectic thinker from Virginia since Thomas Jefferson. Those who don't like him call him a bio-terrorist, Typhoid Mary, charlatan, and starvation advocate. He co-owns, with his family, Polyface Farm in Swoope, Virginia.
With 12 published books, and a thriving multi-generational family farm, he draws on a lifetime of food, farming and fantasy to entertain and inspire audiences around the world. He's as comfortable moving cows in a pasture as addressing CEOs in a Wall Street business conference. Often receiving standing ovations, he prefers the word performance rather than presentation to describe his lectures. His favorite activity?-Q&A. “I love the interaction,” he says. http://www.polyfacefarms.com/joels-bio/
Dr. Leland Stillman is board-certified in internal medicine and specializes in integrative medicine. He majored in environmental health at Connecticut College, and went on to earn his medical doctorate from the University of Virginia School of Medicine. He completed his training in internal medicine at Maine Medical Center. Dr. Stillman became interested in natural and integrative medicine at an early age. He has a passion for doing whatever it takes to discover the root cause of his patients' medical problems. He focuses not only on the patient, but upon all aspects of the environment they live in. He has particular interests in phototherapy (photobiomodulation), nutrition, toxicology and the immune system. He uses advanced laboratory testing to discover the metabolic imbalances at the root of his patients' medical problems, and then addresses those imbalances with dietary or lifestyle interventions.

Prehistoric Patterns for Agriculture
Recent discoveries about the ancient past reveal insights about ecology and functional regeneration that offer broad principles for farming. From beaver ponds to perennials, predator to prey, nature's template provides a roadmap to abundance. Restoring nature's macro-biome on the farm is the secret to long-term production and nourishment.
