The author of The Omnivore's Dilemma: A Natural History of Four Meals, Michael Pollan, probably does not want drop-by visits by readers of his nonfiction book. As with most authors, however, you can contact him directly about potentially scheduling a visit or meeting, or maybe just a phone call, through his publisher, in this case, Penguin Publishing Group. Write to:

Michael Pollan

c/o: Penguin Publishing

375 Hudson St
New York, NY 10014

You can send a letter to Pollan at this address and there is a good chance he will respond. He is also a professor at the University of California, Berkeley, and maintains an office there. The university website provides the following contact information for Professor Pollan:

121 North Gate Hall
Berkeley, CA 94720-5860



+1 510 642-8240

+1 510 643-9136

Finally, it should be noted that the farm in Virginia to which you are probably referring is the Polyface Farm in Swoope, Virginia, which sits in the Shenandoah Valley near the border with West Virginia. Polyface Farm is owned by Joel Salatin, who welcomes visitors to his spread where he specializes in sustainable agriculture. Below is a link to Salatin's homepage, where he provides detailed information on how to get to his farm:


The address is 43 Pure Meadows Lane, Swoope, VA, 24479.
