Located in Swoope, VA just outside of Staunton, the Salatin family has developed Polyface Farm as a model of responsible, humane, and sustainable farming. If you have ever seen the documentary Food Inc., you may recognize Joel Salatin, owner of Polyface who is featured several times throughout the movie. He is also featured in Micheal Pollan's influential book, The Ominivore's Dilemma. Mr. Salatin has become outspoken in sharing his innovative chemical-free farming practices favoring natural ecosystems over large scale industrial farming.
