Joel Salatin, Polyface Farm

Friends, we are thrilled to announce that Joel Salatin will visit Four String Farm on Friday, October 20!  We are so unbelievably excited to host the most innovative farmer in America right here on our farm!  Please join us for this extraordinary event!

This event is called FARMATASTROPHE HEALING (aptly named by Joel).  Joel will tour Four String Farm on the afternoon of Friday, Oct 20, to be followed by a dinner later that evening (details to be announced shortly, we are finalizing now).  Joel will speak at the farm and host a question/answer session, and he will speak at the dinner as well.

Joel Salatin to Bring Inspiration and Expertise to South Texas

Salatin will bring inspiration and valuable expertise around farming and local food to our community following the destruction of Hurricane Harvey.  Joel Salatin is my absolute farming hero–the man whose ideas we based our farming methods on–and I can’t tell you how excited and honored we are to have him visit our farm!

We will post an itinerary shortly, how to book tickets, plus all other details.  For now, please mark your calendar and don’t miss this incredible event!  Look for updates coming soon!

  1. This is Antoinette (Toni)…the one with the house in France. Our house in Rockport is damaged beyond saving. We were able to salvage a lot of stuff. We are living in San Antonio…probably permanently. I would like to keep receiving your newsletter and would love to hear your speaker.

    I hope you are recovering from the hurricane. By the way, you guys are still invited to stay in my house in France whenever you want. Lots of fresh produce and wine!

    Best of all to you guys!

    • Hello Toni! I am so sorry about your house! So many people lost their homes, and even their businesses too, it is just heartbreaking. You are so much fun, we will miss you but hope you can visit often. Please consider us your home away from home. Kayla said to tell you we will DEFINITELY take you up on your offer of staying in your house in France! We don’t know when or how, but YES! The only trouble may be getting us out! Please visit us soon! We still have to catch up from your trip and you try Kayla’s terrine! All the best to you Toni!
