Have you heard of Polyface Farms located in Swoope,VA just outside of Staunton? Well if you haven’t – just google ‘Joel Salatin’ and you will be introduced into the REAL world of agriculture, healthy food & clean farming. You may not like what you hear and you might have to take a hard look at what you consume, so be ready because this man and his message is not to be ignored! You are about to experience a reality food and lifestyle check if you read any of his books or listen to any of his youtube videos. I will be heading down to Polyface Farms in April to attend one of their Lunatic Tours and I can’t wait ! Joel speaks around the world but I am excited to hear him speak on his own turf this Spring at his family farm. If you are not lucky enough to take a ride through the Blue Ridge mountains and visit Polyface Farms, consider attending one of Joel’s speaking events or reading one of his books, if you are super frugal like myself listen to him talk on YouTube! Until then, start seeding and enjoy these photographs from a bacon mission this past summer! I didn’t take a lot of photographs because I was just so excited to be there, I plan on taking a lot more photographs in April!
