Farm Of The Future

Polyface Farms, the farm of many faces is the farm of the future. Forget hydroponics and genetically modified plantings, these people are getting it right. The Polyface farm produces around $3000.00 dollars worth of value per acre, as opposed to a regular farm's $150.00 per acre, using some of the most sustainable techniques around.

Disregarding conventional wisdom, the Salatins planted trees, built huge compost piles, dug ponds, moved cows daily with portable electric fencing, and invented portable sheltering systems to produce all their animals on perennial prairie polycultures.

Today the farm arguably represents America’s premier non-industrial food production oasis. Believing that the Creator’s design is still the best pattern for the biological world, the Salatin family invites like-minded folks to join in the farm’s mission: to develop emotionally, economically, environmentally enhancing agricultural enterprises and facilitate their duplication throughout the world.

Old MacDonald has nothing on the Salatins.
