I have enjoyed reading some research of Dr. Albrecht in regards to soil health. I am not sure how much the concepts of soil fertility and paleo concepts intersect. There seems to be more of a paleo emphasis that romanticizes wild-caught foods. In current times, this food is becoming more rare, so the question on how we could raise decent food is even more important than ever. What do you think of his writings? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/William_Albrecht

I've never read any of Dr. Albrecht's writings and I am no soil expert, but I am sure that a lot of our soils are depleted and not as optimal as they were in 'caveman days' due to the intense agriculture methods we now use.
Had we only relied on organic gardening methods and replenished the soil regularly with natural humous we might have a better nutrient level in our modern foods. This probably goes as far as to affect the quality of our grass fed beef as well, depending upon the condition of the soil on the farm where it is raised.
I think there is most certainly a connection between soil health and decent healthful Paleo food.
