LAKE JACKSON, Texas – The Ron Paul 2012 Presidential campaign announced today new members its “Farmers for Ron Paul” nationwide coalition formed to energize voters in America’s unrivaled agricultural sector.

The new members include a nationally-known proponent of holistic farming methods, and a farmer from the key early voting state of Iowa.

“I’ve been a fan of Ron Paul for years, since the first day I learned about his positions.  He’s the only one with enough backbone to take on the entrenched corporate-government fraternity by attacking with the power of freedom, thereby unleashing entrepreneurial dreams on the marketplace.  Currently cowering under the withering fire of guns, badges, and bureaucracy, America’s home-based and back-yard innovators have plenty of antidotes to the problems that plague our culture,” said Joel F. Salatin, who raises livestock using chemical-free holistic methods and co-owns with his family Polyface Farm in Swoope, Virginia.

“Paul understands the power of bottom-up creativity.  Reducing the military, both foreign and domestic, reducing regulatory power, and reducing the penetration of prejudicial government interests in the culture is the balanced approach to restore constitutional normalcy.  Paul is the only national figure willing to go to the mat for these precious principles that will ensure tomorrow’s opportunities,” said Mr. Salatin.

Mr. Salatin authored eight books, including the most recent Folks, This Ain’t Normal.  He was featured in the film documentary Food, Inc. and most recently in TIME magazine on October 24, 2011.  The New York Times dubbed Mr. Salatin “the high priest of the pasture” and he is often introduced as the “most famous farmer in America.”
