As the problems of the world become more and more complex, the solutions become clear and simple.
What if saving the planet was as easy as changing agricultural practices? What if we could regenerate our landscapes, our communities, local economies, our health and most importantly our soils whilst delivering quality, nutrient dense products to an ever demanding and expanding consumer base? Could it be this simple?
Darren Doherty, 5th generation Bendigo farmer, developer, author & trainer, knows it is – so together with his wife, actress Lisa Heenan and three children, including film maker daughter Isabella, he set out to the US to spend four years documenting a style of farming that will save humanity.
Set amidst the stunning Shenendoah Valley in Northern Virginia, Joel Salatin’s Polyface Farm in Virginia uses no chemicals and feeds over 6,000 families, restaurants and cafes within a three hour foodshed of their farm. Joel Salatin was called "The world's most innovative farmer" by Time magazine.
'Polyfaces' is a joyful film about connecting to the land. It follows the Salatin’s – a 4th generational farming family who do everything different than everyone else. The Doherty’s follow the family and farm over three years 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.
Agriculture is the most damaging industry on the planet but it doesn’t have to be!
This is a film to inspire change and save humanity.
