    1. After reading You Can Farm: The Entrepreneur’s Guide to Start and Succeed in a Farming Enterprise by Joel Salatin, reading this book was a must in our endeavour to raise our own chickens for meat.The book is basically a manual on how to raise your own meat chickens in a free range environment. It starts with raising chicks right through to processing them. It also includes guides on egg production. Again, it is packed full of information on almost everything you need to know.It is an interesti [...]

    2. There are so many prophets trying to guilt Americans into being green. Joel Salatin is not one of them. His points are clear, well researched through experience, and accurate. It is shameful that laziness and big commercial production gets the nod from so many government-dependent food-ignorant citizens.I hope Joel's vision continues to gain ground. And I hope to help by participating!

    3. In Pastured Poultry Profits, Joel Salatin lays out the model that Virginia's Polyface Farm uses for pasture-raised broilers, as well as thoughts on raising layers (as of 1999, they hadn't settled on a production model, though they had quite a few thoughts on the matter). Salatin's goal for himself--and for his readers who choose to follow their model--is to raise the best chicken (and eggs) in the world. The emphasis is on raising healthy, happy chickens which forage for a portion of their own f [...]

    4. Loved it! I found this book to be clear and helpful in setting up an operation like this. Salatin's philosophical ramblings notwithstanding, I recommend this book to anyone who is keen to learn how to start and succeed in a pastured poultry business.

    5. Really needs a full update and re-edit, but this is the classic that changed a whole industry. Slam full of information. Make sure you take notes as you read or you will never find those nuggets again.

    6. Even if you aren't planning on going into the pastured poultry business beyond raising chickens for your own consumption, this is a great book to have on hand for broiler raising in general. Mr. Salatin lays out step by step how to set up your operation and also provides great examples of his experience, giving insight to common problems to watch out for as well as encouraging creative problem solving instead of relying on common "wisdom" you might receive from your local extension service. This [...]

    7. A similar book to Salad Bar Beef but this one is about raising chickens in a safe humane and natural way. He gets pretty detailed with his slaughtering techniques as well as the disposal of the blood and guts. He claims that due to his natural methods his chickens and eggs are far superior to anything at the grocery store. When you consider the methods used to raise chickens in the mass production model that we have become so accustomed to his claims appear valid. I plan to read more about agroe [...]

    8. Another absolute must-read for anyone raising chickens. However, the general method of raising chickens described is more suited for Cornish Cross chickens than heirloom chickens. And yes, Joel Salatin is a "bit" to the right politically, but if you ignore his snipes against Bill Clinton or abortion, his general chicken-raising techniques and his philosophy about food are above reproach. Lots of great, general tips that have been learned the hard way by Salatin over several decades, and he graci [...]

    9. A some what enlightened and heartening description ( a manual if you like) of a sensible and concerned method of raising chickens and processing them for meat. It certainly shows up the wholesale industrial methods that leave a lot to be desired for humane and ecological methods.Salatin has followed many devious paths to get around local legislature concerning meat producers and sets a good standard for smaller enterprises in this area.Still a lot of blood and guts though!

    10. A very wholesome book on the how and why of raising pastured chickens. An important note, ishow much more healthy and tasty the final product is for the consumer. Differences people cansee and taste! Very informative in a Joel Salatin style delivery! RBMc Endicott, NY

    11. Joel Salatin is a national treasure. Very practical guide on how to raise chickens in mobile confinement pens (i.e "chicken tractors"). Great for utilizing/fertiizing pastures. Easily integrated (with smaller pens) into a permaculture orchard environment where there would be great synergies. The great thing about raising broilers is that you can bring a cornish cross to slaughter in 6-8 weeks! Great spring/summer project, without having to overwinter your animals.

    12. Excellent overview of raising pastured poultry for someone who thinks they may want to get into clean farming. I would say Organic farming, but using the O-word is a bureaucratic nightmare so most farms that were Organic before the govt required $10,000+ a year in fees to use that word have dropped it in favor of Natural or Clean farming. Joel Salatin is an entertaining writer with a good balance of intellect vs colloqialism.

    13. Allow people to legally chose to buy their food from people they know and trust, in other words allow farmers to sell from paddock to plate, lobby your politicians to pass laws which allow farmers to process chickens and other animals on farms using realistic methods that will reduce the risks of contamination,

    14. This isn't a book to be read as literature but more as an instruction manual on how to approach raising chickens. While very informative, it is also getting a bit dated. There were two addendum in the back to update the original material with additional learning that Joel has acquired. Certainly worth while if you were consider getting into the chicken business.

    15. Joel Salatin is famous in the local, slow-foods movement, and for good reason. While the book is almost entirely about his (always improving) methods for raising pastured chickens, you can easily his entire ethic (the Clean Foods Ministry) shining through.A great, informative read, even if you only plan on a few backyard chickens someday.

    16. I'd been putting off reading Pastured Poultry Profits because I didn't want to sell my pastured chickens. But the book has lots of information for anyone who wants to raise chickens more sustainably, and is also fun and easy to read. Superior to some of his more opinionated later books.

    17. Great book! He needs to just re-write a new edition entirely to be the most current on pricing, technology etc. The addendums at the end were very helpful to see what he has changed in his operation. Can't wait to start producing some good pasture-raised poultry! I love Joel's honest writing style.

    18. Very important and influential book about raising poultry in a more natural way. Salatin recommends using lightweight, portable shelters so the birds get fresh grass and bugs to nibble on each day (plan on twice daily as the meat birds get bigger). I recommend also reading "Day Range Poultry" by Pat Foreman.

    19. Interesting and detailed instructions for producing healthy, happy chickens. This book would be even better if a new edition were made that incorporated all of the things he's learned since it was first published. Right now, that information is contained in several appendices which makes it hard to tell how it fits into the overall system.

    20. Excellent book covering everything you want to know if you are raising chickens, pastured or not, and then some. Joel writes in a humorous, straight-forward manner. He makes raising chickens sound fun. :)

    21. Polyface is a marvel when it comes to practical sustainable solutions for us small farmers.For us running farmlets a MUST read, provided you want to keep chickens.
