This is an actual snail-mail postcard sent from a Mecca of sorts for folks like me. The photo is called “Lunatic Farmer,” and immediately prior to being put in the mail to me, it was on the premises of Polyface Farms! I may have it framed. Really not joking.
Who sent me this wonderful treasure?
Why, Wilson of Pantry Paratus did! And today, he wrote about his trip to visit Polyface, where he had the fantastic opportunity to sit down and talk with Joel Salatin – my hero. In Wilson’s words, “Actually having the opportunity to meet Joel Salatin himself and getting to sit down and interview him was a lot like meeting someone you only see on a Wheaties box. “
It gets better, though. Here is a portion of what Wilson wrote on the back of the card; it gives me hope in humanity – seriously.
“Let us go and do likewise.”
Go forth, good people; go forth and do likewise.
