For about five years now, I've regarded Sepp Holzer as my ultimate authority on ag, gardening, animal husbandry and making money from a farm. The problem has been that he lives thousands of miles away and speaks only german. A week and a half ago he arrived in the US to do a workshop series - complete with an interpreter or two. I took this video on his first day and yesterday I got the green light to share it with the world. I broke it up into four chunks. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nbhDTmKtbOo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2RuL8jm043o https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3vHXa3y8B7M https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F4LPTcP_EHU To give you an idea of what this guy is all about: He raises chickens, pigs and cattle and buys feed only in an emergency. He grows the feed and the animals harvest it themselves. He is in the alps of austria where it gets to be about 20 to 30 below zero in the winter. He gets about 25 inches of rain per year. His property is made entirely of very steep slopes. He does not irrigate or fertilize or use pesticides of any kind. He has built 70 ponds on his land - on super steep slopes. He never uses any kind of liner. He has built ponds all over the world on all kinds of soils. What he practices sounds completely crazy at first, but he is demonstrating that it really works. And each crazy thing ends up making sense when you understand the whole system.
