In appreciation of their generosity, donors providing $250 during the 2010 FundRAISER are invited to a very special event at Joel and Teresa Salatin's Polyface Farm in Swoope, Virginia. 

PLAN FOR THE DAY
Plan on arriving a little early, at 9:00 a.m. We won't have the farm all to ourselves, and there will be a brisk business at the new Polyface Farm Store all day Saturday. There's plenty of parking.

Joel will hook up the tractor to the hay wagons, and our tour will start at 9:30 a.m. and take approximately 2 1/2 hours total.  Please note, there are no "facilities' along the way.

That'll put us back at the Polyface Farm Store at noon, and we'll have 30 minutes to freshen up for our lunch served at 12:30 p.m.  Farm air sharpens the appetite!

After lunch you'll have plenty time to shop and fill your coolers at the Polyface Farm Store. The event concludes at 2:30 p.m., but the Polyface Farm Store is open until 4:00 p.m.
