Anyway overall it was a great read with lots of information to help us in our venture. May 30, Rob rated it it was amazing Shelves: 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! Jan 28, John rated it it was amazing.
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 , 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 food and--as a result--taste delicious. The first section of the book delineates what it is that makes pastured poultry raised in this way such a superior product, including some of the family history that brought the Salatins into the production of broilers raised on pasture.
The next sections discuss topics from the choosing of breeds and starting of chicks through the necessary equipment and techniques to raise and process the birds. Despite the enthusiastic, positive approach he takes to these methods, the longest chapter in the book is the one on problems that may arise and the ways they have dealt with the problems. Another section details some thoughts on marketing, which is also necessary to be successful, but it's worth noting that what Salatin advocates is "Relationship Marketing," i.
The final chapter lays out some possibilities such as eggs and turkeys which are not the primary focus of the method--and thus are not as fully fleshed out here--but which may nonetheless appeal as complementary projects. The appendices not only give direction to valuable resources and expand on some of the material in the marketing section but also add new information as the book has been reprinted, detailing some changes in method and changes in circumstances that may affect the implementation of this model.
Turkeys and laying hens, which got short shrift in the original text, get a fuller treatment as Polyface Farm developed its models more completely in the intervening years. On the whole, this is an excellent and inspirational "how to" book, but also a compelling look into the alternatives that exist in food production models and the consequences of these different paths to obtaining our food.
It's hard to rate it fairly since I haven't yet had the chance to implement these methods, but it seems very compelling, well-written, and thorough. View 1 comment. Nov 29, Theresa rated it it was amazing Shelves: 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. Aug 04, Todd rated it really liked it.
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.
Dec 29, Jonathan Tucker rated it it was amazing. This book offers the best advice for landowners who would like to raise meat birds for profit. Excellently written and extremely honest and informative.
You will love this book! Aug 02, Caleb McDaniel rated it it was amazing. If I didn't want to bring meat hens to my corner of the world before I sure do now.
Jun 22, Ford Prior rated it it was amazing. Matter-of-fact, barebones manual for raising and processing meat chickens. Printed in Courier font with absolutely no emphases on design or aesthetics, but the content is pure gold.
Nov 19, Blair R rated it really liked it. 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.
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 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. This is a man who has been there, done that- not a theoretical author who hasn't actually put a broiler in a pasture pen. He covers everything from brooders to processing and also covers marketing and customer management for those interested.
I would also suggest buying the hard copy as it is nice to have on hand to refer to when you encounter any issues with your broilers. It's a great reference guide. Jun 29, Jeremy rated it liked it Recommends it for: 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 A similar book to Salad Bar Beef but this one is about raising chickens in a safe humane and natural way.
I plan to read more about agroecology and the symbiotic relationship between plants and animals as well as animals amoungst themselves however his outlook tends to be a little bit extreme as well as biased.
Jul 21, Steve rated it really liked it.
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 Another absolute must-read for anyone raising chickens. Lots of great, general tips that have been learned the hard way by Salatin over several decades, and he graciously passes on this information in a no-nonsense fashion in this book.
Mar 06, Keith rated it liked it. 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! Aug 12, Bobmc40 rated it it was amazing. A very wholesome book on the how and why of raising pastured chickens. An important note, is how much more healthy and tasty the final product is for the consumer.
Differences people can see and taste! Very informative in a Joel Salatin style delivery! Aug 26, Joshua added it Shelves: Joel Salatin is a national treasure. Very practical guide on how to raise chickens in mobile confinement pens i. 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 weeks! Mar 05, David Galloway rated it really liked it Shelves: Excellent overview of raising pastured poultry for someone who thinks they may want to get into clean farming.
Joel Salatin is an entertaining writer with a good balance of intellect vs colloqialism.
Jun 04, Simon Van der craats rated it it was amazing. 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,.
Mar 11, Johnny Bennett rated it liked it. 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. Oct 02, Ron Khare rated it it was amazing. 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. Oct 02, Anna rated it it was amazing Shelves: 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.
