“Sustainable farming and good food”
Reviewed 21 January 2012

The farm tour I went on was top-notch, although the owner is quite opinionated. He was open to showing us everything and answering all our questions. And the chicken and pork I bought to bring home was excellent.

“My favorite farmers”
Reviewed 17 January 2012

We are lucky to live near Polyface. We support their farming and philosophy and getting out to the farm is always a treat. You can walk around anywhere and get an idea of their ethical farming practices.

“Awesome Place To Learn About Pastured Farming”
Reviewed 25 October 2011

Polyface has a field day only once every 3 yrs. or so. You can go get a tour at other times.

Run by Joel Salatin and his family, Polyface Farms is truly a beacon of hope for small farmers and the Farm to Consumer movement. Joel has written many books on small farming, grass farming, pastured chickens, etc.

If you care about what goes into your mouth, visit or read one of Joel's books.
