Dubbed one of the most innovative farmers in the world by Time Magazine, Joel Salatin proves that holistic management and regenerative agriculture are the best way to build a successful and viable agricultural entreprise.
Join him on May 5-7th 2019 for a three-days Masterclass organised by Coume Sourde Farm (Aude, France).
Joel Salatin’s agricultural philosophy is based on the growth of a nutrient-rich grass on which animals can thrive in a symbiotic food cycle without chemical products. Cattle is regularly moved from one pasture to the other rather than fed corn. The chickens follow them in their “Egg-mobile” to scatter dung and the nutrients they contain, and to eat fly larvae. The pigs aerate compost and forage their own acorn-based food in the forest.
This intensive agricultural system, based on multi-species synergies (humans includes), produces more per hectare than the industriel system. Add to that the development of a dense local community of clients with direct marketing, and you get the recipe for a profitable agricultural entreprise which offers an unrivaled quality of life.
“We want prospective customers to find farms in their areas and keep the money in their own community. We think there is strength in decentralization and spreading out rather than in being concentrated and centralized.« – Joel Salatin
