NEWS DIGEST - Joel Salatin Fondly Recalls Staunton Curb Market!

Joel Recalls Staunton Curb Market! + New On-Farm Poultry Processing Chart!
Dear Defender of Food Freedom,

No one says it quite like Joel Salatin; in his new post, he fondly recalls the Staunton Curb Market where, as a teenager, he could sell nearly any homemade food product you can imagine with *gasp* zero regulations and no food safety complaints and at often cheaper prices than the grocery stores!
