Salad Bar Beef is a "how-to" book that explains the why, how, and who of small-scale, organic livestock management. The Salatin family speaks from three generations of practical experience; at Polyface Farm they have created a successful prototype for profitable small-herd management that has withstood the tests of time, fluctuating demand for beef, and price variation.
