I wonder if Thom is familiar with Joel Salatin and the farming and agribusiness techniques that he and his family are using at Polyface Farm in Swoope, Virginia. Joel concentrates his attention on grass farming and raises beef, swine, rabbits, chickens (broilers and egg layers) and turkeys. They use no chemical enhancements on the land, no antibiotics in feed, no tilling of the soil and no fertilizer accept composted manure. His techniques are portable and can be used in a backyard in any country in the world. He's written several books on the subject and tours all over the world discussing his discoveries. Maybe Thom could interview him in the future.
