Set amidst the stunning Shenandoah Valley, in Northern Virginia, ‘Polyface Farm’ is led by the “world’s most innovative farmers” (TIME Magazine) and uses no chemicals, while feeding over 6,000 families and many restaurants, and food outlets, within a 3-hour ‘foodshed’ of their farm. ‘Polyfaces’ is a joyful film about connecting to the land and community. Produced over 4 years, it follows the Salatin’s, a 4th generation farming family, who do “everything different to everyone else” as they produce food in a way that works with nature, not against it. Using the symbiotic relationships of animals and their natural functions, they produce high quality, nutrient-dense products. We show how they regenerate their landscapes, communities, local economies, customer’s health and, most importantly, their soils. We meet various characters and follow their powerful, personal journeys as they benefit, physically and emotionally, from the Salatin’s way of farming. This model is being replicated throughout our global villages, proving that we can provide quality produce, without depleting our planet. Agriculture is the most damaging industry, but it doesn’t have to be and this regenerative model of food productions could be just the thing that saves us!
