You are cordially invited...

We are hosting a launch party for a new "farm drop" on March 2, 2009 at 7:00pm at the National Reality building, 11890 Sunrise Valley Drive, Reston, VA. Our special guest speaker will be Polyface rancher, Matt Rales. Matt is the author of the fantastic article. The Inconvenient Cow, which was published in the Weston A. Price Foundation’s Wise Traditions Journal last year.

Matt is a college graduate who chose sustainable farming for his career path. He is an impressive young man and this is an exciting opportunity to learn more about how we can support Virginia’s small farms. Plus, a tasting of some of Polyface’s products will be served.

Matt will give us a brief talk that will include:

  • The history of soil and grass in the Shenandoah Valley and the animals and people that maintained them.
  • How junk science is behind the UN and EPA’s claims about the detriment of livestock to the environment.
  • Why cattle are the #1 tool to restoring health to people and the environment.
  • Why the cows are not as bad for the environment as we have been told.
  • What Polyface is doing and why it is so important that you are a part of it.
  • Why consumers play a vital role in healing our land.

Polyface Farm in Swoope, VA is the leading sustainable farm in the world. Joel Salatin, the farmer has written six books and has 1000’s visitors touring his farm every year. He is teaching other farmers how to get back to the land, back to the good rich soil and proper animal husbandry. The Polyface farm buying club is the largest in the state. They sell to restaurants in Charlottesville, including Chipotle! Their North Reston farm drop is huge doing around $17,000 in sales every visit. Because of that, the owners for National Reality have invited them to start a second drop in Reston (at the National Reality office building), so that it will be more convenient and less crowded for their customers. Now folks can choose whichever drop site or drop time is most convenient for them. The first drop will be March 10, 2009, order deadline is March 3.
