Joel Salatin Talks Farm Marketing


300 farmers go out of business every week in America.

Every week.

I was shocked to hear that statistic.

I know 80% of farmers don’t make it past the 2 year mark and only 2% make it to the 5 year mark, but knowing we lose 300 per week is really heart wrenching!

While speaking at a conference at a beautiful ranch in the hills of California, I got the opportunity to sit down with Joel Salatin for about an hour talking shop about why this may be happening and some ideas to stop that dismal failure rate.

If you’re a farmer and you want to be one of the 2% still around in 5 years, then today’ s video is a must-watch.

Not only is Joel America’s most famous farmer (yes, that’s a thing) he’s a prolific author and teacher who’s taught more farmers how to farm through his books and mentorship program than anyone I know.

While marketing and sales are not often part of a farmer’s skill set, they’d better be –  or, if you’re just not going there, listen to Joel’s innovative ideas about leveraging your marketing to get the most bang for your buck.
