Follow Your Small-Farm Dreams

FREE Teleclass with JOEL SALATIN!


Join us on the night of October 9 as sustainable small-farming superstar Joel Salatin reveals his proven plan for successful small agro-preneuring. ***Note: the interview has passed, but we recorded it just for you! Sign up and we’ll send the one hour uproarious interview straight to your inbox.


Hi, Rob and Michelle Avis here!

Believe us, we understand your hesitation…if you follow the headlines, the picture for small organic farms looks pretty scary. It’s enough to make anybody think twice about leaping into sustainable farming!

But you know what? Reality doesn’t necessarily match the network news headlines. In fact, it can be quite different – and Joel Salatin has demonstrated to the world that the dream of a profitable, healthy, sustainable, beyond-organic small farm enterprise is quite achievable … low-stress … and downright pleasant!

That’s why, on October 9, our friend and graduate, sustainable agro-preneur Andrew Bennett interviewed Joel Salatin on the secrets behind his success.

It was all about “How to Make a Living as a Farmer,” and they covered topics like:

  • practical how-to’s, from creative land acquisition to beyond-organic production principles…

  • business principles for farming like an entrepreneur, becoming your own middleman, and marketing to a diverse audience…

  • tips for building a trained cadre of employees and creating a lasting, profitable legacy for your children and grandchildren….

It was a warm-up event before our groundbreaking Salatin Semester…and you’re invited to listen in, free!

What’s the Salatin Semester, you ask?

(Just the easiest, most affordable way to study with Joel Salatin you’ll find from here to OZ…but you’ll hear more about that on the call!)


Didn’t make it on October 9th?

Sign-up anyway! We’ll send you a recording of the uproarious interview –  straight to your inbox! You can listen to it any time at your convenience… but you have to sign up to the teleclass list to receive it!  

If you’re hesitating on the brink of a decision, hungering for definitive guidance and support in building your dream of a  small-farm business, this interview is the sneak-peek gateway to everything you could possibly need: business strategy, farming know-how, crucial networking connections…and all with the high-energy wit and wisdom that make Joel Salatin’s teaching unforgettable!

Not only this: you’ll be getting a real-time taste of Andy’s and Joel’s live teleclasses — a key element of the Salatin Semester webinars. And you’ll be discovering the secret  bonuses – interviews, e-courses, and DVDs – that will only be announced on the call!

But don’t wait to sign up  – NOW is the time to become part of the movement to create food security for your family, community and the world!

Say no more – I’m in!
