Joel Salatin (Ellen Martin/Heinz Awards)

  • Virginia food star Joel Salatin of Polyface Farm just got $100,000 richer. The Shenandoah Valley farmer and author, best known by foodies as a grow-it-local hero in Michael Pollan's "The Omnivore's Dilemma," is one of 10 winners of the Heinz Award announced Tuesday. This year, the annual prize -- established by Teresa Heinz Kerry -- is honoring folks doing good things for the environment. Salatin's central Virginia operation is all about alternative, eco-friendly farming. Plans for the money? "It will all be spent locally," he told us.

    Great news! Very deserving. Everyone should check out Polyface farms. Excellent model for farming driven by NATURE - not the shameful AGRO-INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX that has so many people brainwashed. It's just like the tobacco industry people. Congrats to Joel Salatin and his hard-working family!
