“As the problems of the world become more and more complex, the solutions become clear and simple.”
One Australian family spends their life savings and travel to the USA, spending 4 years documenting a style of farming that will help change the fate of humanity!
Set amidst the stunning Shenandoah Valley in northern Virginia, Polyface Farm is led by the “the world’s most innovative farmer” (TIME), uses no chemicals and feeds over 6,000 families and many restaurants and food outlets within a 3 hour ‘foodshed’ of their farm.
Polyfaces is a joyful film about connecting to the land and the community. Produced over a period of 4 years, it follows the Salatins, a 4th generation farming family who do ‘everything different to everyone else’ as they produce food in a way that works with nature, not against it. Using the symbiotic relationships of animals and their natural functions, they produce high quality, nutrient-dense products.
We show how they regenerate their landscapes, communities, local economies, customer’s health and, most importantly, their soils. We meet various characters and follow their powerful, personal journeys as they benefit physically and emotionally from the Salatin’s way of farming. This model is being replicated throughout our global village, proving that we can provide quality produce without depleting our planet.
Agriculture is the most damaging industry, but it doesn’t have to be; and this regenerative model of food production could be just the thing that saves us!
We are a family who’ve decided to put the future of humanity ahead of watching and wondering. Together we’ve used and built on our talents to create a feature-length film of outstanding quality and power — a fitting tribute to the future that we know is possible.
