Everything I Want To Do Is Illegal

With less work to do in the garden, and school drawing to a close, I've finally had more time just to read for fun. I picked up Salatin's book, "Everything I Want To Do Is Illegal".

It's an entertaining read for anyone interested in the local food movement. He deals mostly with animal products (eggs, beef, and pork), and the controversial methods that surround them. He colorfully details encounters with government bureaucrats , who desperately try to run his small farm down.
He uses independent labs to prove that his products are much cleaner than the typical grocery-store fare, but even so, much of what he wants to sell is often illegal. For being such a thick book, it's a pretty quick read that I recommend.
