After just finishing reading "The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals", my hubby and I happened to be enjoying a long weekend in the Charlottesville, Va area touring the homes of our founding fathers/presidents. Charlottesville is an hour away from Polyface Farms. The farm is discussed in depth in the book as a source of beyond organic, clean meat, pastured animals.
For $15, why not stop by and take the Lunatic Tour? (yes, that's what it's called) And, so we did.
Hubby and Michael, the angelic guard dog:
The happiness of "Pig-ness":
The porch swing at the sales building:
Joel Salatin talking about his beeves:
The amazing story of sunlight to grass:
And big ole' scale in the sales building:
Lunatic? Not so much!, But, definitely thought-provoking. The day was rainy, making the fields soggy and muddy - which translated to walking the route versus the planned tractor-pulled wagon ride. Note to self - bring rubber boots next time!
Joel touts that his farm is transparent and it is indeed.
