Last Year for Polyface Farm Tour with Joel!

Friend of Food Freedom,

On Saturday, August 20, in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, we are holding our annual event, the Deluxe Tour of Polyface Farm, followed by the Ancestral Health Connection brunch on Sunday morning.

We've held the tour on Polyface Farm for the past several years thanks to our gracious hosts, the Salatins. And next year, the event will be held somewhere new!
 
Which means if you haven't yet toured the iconic, sustainable Polyface Farm with the charismatic owner Joel Salatin as your guide, now is your chance! (This is the farm highlighted in Michael Pollan's book The Omnivore's Dilemma and featured in hit documentary Food, Inc.)
 
The special brunch features real food rockstars Robb Wolf, Diana Rodgers, Dallas Hartwig, Charles Mayfield, Drew Ramsey, and more!

Earlybirds: Get your tickets by this Friday, July 1 and save up to $50.
 
See the outline below of the weekend's events just under the photo from last year's tour. 

If you join us for the inspiring weekend, make sure you say "hello"! We'd love to meet you!
 
-FTCLDF Team

P.S. When you attend our events, you not only have a lovely time with like-minded folks and good food, you also support our food-freedom-expanding work. See what members Diana and Roland Reed of Reed Family Farms say about us below.

We are so very grateful to all of you who make this possible! When you donate to FTCLDF, you help pay for services to protect farmers like us, and it means the world to us!"
