The Sheer Ecstasy of Being a Lunatic Farmer: A Local Food Banquet in Partnership with Slow Food

Event Date(s): March 20th, 2013, High River, AB

Slow Food Southern Alberta and Verge Permaculture join forces with local producers and chefs to bring you a tasty celebration of Alberta farming and food, while Joel Salatin performs his thought-provoking, encouraging and entertaining speech “The Sheer Ecstasy of Being a Lunatic Farmer”. The expression that birthed Joel’s book by the same title, this performance describes, with hilarious stories and drama, the difference between Polyface and today’s average farm. If you’ve ever wondered how a local, pasture-based, relationally oriented farm differs from industrial commodity-based machine-driven farms, this presentation takes away the mystery. With discussions ranging from ponds to people to politics, you’ll never think about food and farming the same way after listening to this self-described lunatic farmer!
