WE had a truly memorable experience. We are huge fans of Mr. Joe Salatin. We learned of his farming practices and philosophy from reading Omnivore's Dilemma and had always wanted to visit his farm. The trip from California was long but the Lunatic Tour and the general hospitality of the people in this part of the country made it all worthwhile. Joe is passionate and charismatic and is the perfect person to head this movement. The hayride tour was very engaging and informative as Joe explained his farming practices and answered all the questions. The area is beautiful and we were free to roam around his farm to check out all the animals. The meat was delicious and we were especially amazed at the prices. Prices for similar products in California are at least 1/3 higher. What's most baffling was that the prices for conventional meat in the supermarket in the DC area were actually comparable to California prices and not too far below Polyface's.
Polyface is the face of hope for the next generation of farmers and to some extent, our environment. I hope more people will catch on so the next generations will be able to share and enjoy a sustainable earth.
