Polyface Intensive Discovery Seminars – July 17-18 2023 – VA
July 17 - July 18$900
If you ever wanted in immerse for two days behind the curtain at Polyface Farms, here is your chance! This is a hands on, in-the-field learning experience in which the how-to is smothered in southern hospitality. The Salatin family crams all material possible into two days of fantastic food (6 meals), sweet fellowship and intensive information. It is a comprehensive look at multi-generational multi-species direct market grass farm and business.
There is very limited attendance to maintain intimacy as we actually process chickens and rabbits, go up the mountain to see pigs, and discuss water systems and road building.
We go to one of the rental farms where Joel and Daniel co-teach mob stocking and land lease options.
A silviculture session accentuates good forestry managements. We mill a log into lumber on the farm’s bandsaw mill and talk about adding value to woodlots. Daniel walks you through team building and apprenticeships. We cover genetics, grass finishing beef, pasture poultry, winter housing and more. The syllabus is like a text book.
The first evening Joel and Sheri tag-team a Relationship Marketing session highlighting current techniques and collaborations.
