  6. Do you want to walk away from this experience having the mind & muscle memory necessary to start a Polyface Farming System yourself?

We thought you'd say yes to all of these and so we've limited numbers at this event to provide you with the optimal practical learning experience. 

This event will not be in a classroom, it will be on a real working farm where all of the Polyface Farming Systems are being actualised in a Keylined landscape by young family farmers & regenerative agriculture pioneers, Ben Falloon & Nina Grundner. 

Livestock processing will occur at this event as it is an essential plank of Regenerative Agriculture's grasp of 1. Production 2. Processing 3. Marketing & 4. Distribution. 

Book now to avoid missing out on this experience of a lifetime with the world's best farmer demonstrating the future of agriculture at one of the world's best examples of regenerative agriculture  less than 1 hour from Melbourne.
