A Salatin classic, Pastured Poultry Profits is Joel’s first book and is why many are farming today. Although many of the numbers are now outdated the substance is still as relevant today as ever.
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.
