An Australian made film that paints a portrait of Time Magazine’s ‘most innovative farmer in the world’ and showcases the regenerative farming practices that have the power to transform the global food system for the better.

Winner of the Minister for Agriculture award at the Life Sciences Film Festival, Polyfaces features the Salatin’s, 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. 
Set amidst the Stunning Shenendoah Valley in Northern Virginia, Polyface Farm uses no chemicals and feeds over 6,000 families, restaurants and cafes within a 3 hour foodshed of their farm. 

Joel Salatin was called ‘The world’s most innovative farmer‘ by Time magazine.

The film shows how Joel and his family regenerate their landscapes, communities, local economies, customers health and most importantly their soils. 

Polyfaces highlights the power and potential of this revolutionary new farming practice to work miracles for farmers and for the planet.
