Book Overview

A couple working six months per year for 50 hours per week on 20 acres can net $25,000-$30,000 per year with an investment equivalent to the price of one new medium-sized tractor. Seldom has agriculture held out such a plum. In a day when main-line farm experts predict the continued demise of the family farm, the pastured poultry opportunity shines like a beacon in the night, guiding the way to a brighter future.

Nobody talks poultry like Joel Salatin

Details, details, details - this book is loaded with them, even the less than pleasant ones. Well written, logical, practical - an excellent book. It covers everything from getting the chicks to slaughtering the full grown birds and transferring them to the customer. I look forward to reading the rest of Joel's books about his unique style of farming, and hope for the day when this type of sustainable agriculture will become the norm.

The Only Step-By-Step Guide to Small-Farm Broiler Production

Salatin gives a step-by-step guide to his innovative method of raising meat chickens on pasture. This book has been used by hundreds of total novices to build up profitable small-farm broiler businesses. Salatin gives clear descriptions and makes lavish use of photographs to get his points across. Pastured broilers taste better than store-bought, and the manure left behind by the pastured chickens has rejuvenated our pasture. The work is pleasant and isn't strenuous. The hardest part is becoming proficient at butchering. Salatin lays out the method, but learning to do it quickly takes practice.My wife studied this book, followed the instructions carefully, and has had three successful seasons of broiler production, and is looking forward to season #4.

Back to basics

Joel Salatin put into words what many of us are looking for...a cost effective way to "get back to nature" by farming, and providing healthy food options at the same time! His unique approach to ideas gets my imagination going. I would recommend this book to anyone interested in purchasing homegrown produce and meats, and anyone wanting to try their hand at raising them. Very practical.
