Polyface Farms

Daniel is a multi-generational farmer. He’s grown up in the farming landscape in Swoope, VA. Farming right out of the gate has given him a lifetime of experience, mastery, and confidence that comes from a life’s work and passion. Today he leads an ever-growing team at Polyface Farm. Daniel finds the most joy in his family, teaching, team building, healing soil, farm design, a growing relationship with Jesus, working with livestock, and hunting. Managing the day-to-day flow of the farm, he works with cattle, hogs, meat birds, layers, turkeys, rabbits, sheep, and forestry, but most importantly- People. This keeps him learning something every day in a high-energy, outdoor workplace. With over 30 years of hands-on experience in the land healing, healthy food growing world, Daniel is practical in his approach and teaching.
