Polyfaces FINAL Image Play Button

Set amid the stunning Shenandoah Valley, this joyful documentary details the innovative agricultural techniques of Polyface Farm.

Charming and insightful, this film is inspiring in its symbiotic relationships between local economies, communities, and the importance of healthy soil. Discussion with filmmakers Lisa Heenan and Darren Doherty, Joel Salatin, Daniel Salatin, Tanya Cobb, Kristen Suokko, and moderator Brian Wheeler

Supported by Charlottesville Tomorrow and U.Va. Food Collaborative
