POLYFACE INTENSIVE DISCOVERY SEMINARS
Two out of every three years, Polyface offers this two-day, six meal (it’s worth coming just for the meals) intensive seminar limited to 30 people in order to maintain intimacy. If you ever wanted to go behind the scenes with the Salatin family, this is your opportunity. We actually process chickens, process rabbits, go up the mountain to see pigs, discuss water systems and road building.
We go to one of the rental farms to talk about mob stocking and land lease options. A silviculture session accentuates good forestry management. We mill a log into lumber on the farm’s bandsaw mill, and talk about adding value to woodlots.
The first evening Joel presents a Relationship Marketing session until dark, highlighting the current techniques the farm and its collaborators use. This is a hands on, in-the-field learning experience in which the how-to is smothered in southern hospitality. The most common complaint is: “Oh, I should have brought my . . . wife, husband, business partner, in-laws, friend.”
Who comes? Anyone. We’ve had chefs, environmentalists, farmers, professors, bureaucrats . . . even animal rights activists. The most common testimonial: “The first half day made it worthwhile.” Come and join us.
