Polyfaces is a film about connecting to the land and the community. Set amidst the stunning Shenandoah Valley in northern Virginia, Polyface Farm uses no chemicals and feeds over 6,000 families and many restaurants and food outlets within a three-hour ‘foodshed’ of their farm. Using the symbiotic relationships of animals and their natural functions, they produce high quality, nutrient-dense products.
Mahaffey Farms is doing the same kind of farming right here in northwest Louisiana. Mahaffey’s Evan McCommon will join us and Slow Food North Louisiana for a post-screening dialogue about the farm-to-table movement in Shreveport-Bossier. Documentary, 90 min.
