“America’s most famous farmer”, Joel Salatin, will be speaking at Farm To Table: Freedom Of Choice 2015 on October 10th at Windy Acres Dairy in Prineville, Oregon. This outdoor event on the 32-acre farm of Billie Johnson is not to be missed!

Joel’s multi-generational Polyface Farm in Virginia became famous in Michael Pollan’s NY Times bestseller, “The Omnivore’s Dilemma”. Using nature as a pattern, the Salatin family healed an abused piece of land. Through unconventional, environmentally-friendly practices, Polyface was transformed into a non-industrial food production oasis. The innovative techniques developed at Polyface are now utilized on farms worldwide. Come hear Joel speak on farming, freedom and food rights!

The farm will be open to all ticket holders and the public at 10:00 a.m. on event day. Joel will be signing books at the end of the presentations, selected titles will be available for sale. Credit cards, cash and local checks accepted for book purchases.

Event location: 3320 NW Stahancyk Lane, Prineville, OR 97754

Now that our event is close at hand (and we are an all-volunteer group!) PLUS there’s plenty to do now on the farm, Lawn Seating tickets will be available, cash only ($15), at the farm on Saturday. We are sorry for any inconvenience.

Even with the help of our “Friends of Windy Acres” volunteers and generous event sponsors, it is expensive to host this day with Joel. We appreciate any and all donations!

A portion of the proceeds to benefit the Farm-To-Consumer Legal Defense Fund and Central Oregon Locavore. Everyone is welcome!
