Daniel Salatin is the son of Joel & Teresa Salatin, and is the Manager of Polyface Farms Inc. As the third generation on Polyface farm in Swoope, Virginia, he has grown up in the family business.
Polyface services more than 5,000 families, 10 retail outlets, & 50 restaurants through on-farm sales & metropolitan buying clubs with salad bar beef, pastured poultry, eggmobile eggs, pigaerator pork, forage-based rabbits, pastured turkey & forestry products through relationship marketing.
A self-confessed 'home school drop-out', Daniel was always going to be a great regenerative farmer having gone from carrying freshly processed chickens while in nappies, to running & over-seeing the day-to-day workings of Polyface. As a seven-year old he started a pastured rabbit enterprise, which has had its ups & downs but continues today. Starting the rabbit business gave him first hand experience with marketing, processing, research & development, & the costs of a new business.
Today Daniel is fully employed by the farm & spends his days orchestrating animal movement, scheduling daily tasks & apprentice training. At thirty-one, Daniel is married to wife Sheri Salatin & has two sons Travis & Andrew & one daughter Lauryn.
Sheri Salatin is the marketing director at Polyface Farm and stay-at-home mom of three children. Sheri is passionate about clean food and enjoys working the land along side her husband, Daniel.
Originally from a farm in Texas, Sheri was influential in getting the buying clubs up & running, starting at 30 families and in just a few years now oversees 25 drop locations throughout Virginia, Maryland & Washington DC with over 5,000 families. The buying clubs are nurtured under her direct oversight and she is the go-to person for all questions about marketing to metropolitan areas.
Through real life experiences, Sheri has honed her skills and shares some of the best ways to approach and sell to some of the top chefs in the world.
Polyface services more than 5,000 families, 10 retail outlets, and 50 restaurants through on-farm sales and metropolitan buying clubs with salad bar beef, pastured poultry, eggmobile eggs, pigaerator pork, forage-based rabbits, pastured turkey and forestry products through relationship marketing.
Today Sheri spends her days juggling marketing, website maintenance, blogging, motherhood, and farming. At thirty-three, Sheri is married to husband Daniel and has two sons Travis and Andrew and one daughter Lauryn.
