Friday Pass: Polyface Farm
The MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR at Polyface Farm is a uniquely amazing event unlike any other MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR experience. The FAIR team could not be more thrilled to collaborate with the Salatin family on this one-of-a-kind adventure!
We couldn’t be more thrilled to join Joel Salatin and his family in putting on the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR at Polyface Farm. A self-described “lunatic” farmer, Salatin produces salad bar beef, pastured poultry, pigaerator pork, and forage-based rabbits, and he and his family’s approach to farming have been featured prominently in countless media (Mother Earth News among them). Polyface services 6,000 families and 50 restaurants, and Salatin teaches others through on-farm educational opportunities and the pages of his own books.
Attendees can expect NEW workshops from both first-time and returning speakers and authors as well as unique interactions with active farm operations helmed by Polyface’s legion of interns and apprentices. This is your chance to experience live chicken processing, learn about the carbon shed, view egg mobiles, and discover Polyface Farm exclusives like “rakens” (rabbit/chicken hutches) and the “Millennium Feathernet” … and so much more!
As always, children 17 and under are FREE at the MOTHER EARTH NEWS FAIR!
All attendees also receive a DVD copy of POLYFACES: A World of Many Choices (A $30 value!). A feature-length documentary by Australian filmmakers Lisa Heenan and Isaebella Doherty, POLYFACES captures the life and practices of Polyface Farm. It’s the only documentary to capture interviews with Salatin’s mother, Lucille, and his wife, Teresa. Up-close videography of chickens eating fly larvae from cow pies is legendary and magnificent!
