â€œWe run the farm like a business instead of a welfare recipient,â€ declares farmer, author, and entrepreneur Joel Salatin, who eschews government subsidies and questions the wisdom of most federal food regulations. A self-described â€œChristian-conservative-libertarian-environmentalist-lunatic,â€ Salatin isnâ€™t afraid to speak his mind. â€œIâ€™ve never taken drugs and donâ€™t intend to, but I absolutely defend the right of someone to take them if they want. By the same token, I donâ€™t eat McDonaldâ€™s food, but I vehemently defend the right of people to eat it,â€ he says. In a wide-ranging interview conducted by Baylen Linnekin, executive director of the nonprofit Keep Food Legal, Salatin weighs in on the future of food and freedom in America.
