Slow Food was founded by Carlo Petrini in the small northern Italian town of Bra in 1986. Its initial aim was to support and defend good food, the enjoyment of eating and a slow pace of life. It then broadened to encompass a wider quality of life and sustainability and environmental issues.

We whole heartedly believe in the concept of Slow Food. From the way we grow our animals, slowly, naturally and in harmony with nature, to the way we like to enjoy food, taking care over the cooking process, and sitting down together eating and enjoying food.

The team at Slow Food work to reconnect people with where their food comes from and how it is produced, to give consumers a better understanding of the implications of the choices they make about the food they put on their plates. They encourage people to choose nutritious food, from sustainable, local sources which tastes great.

We hold many events here at Pipers Farm to give groups a better understanding of how we produce our meat. If you would like to find out more about Slow Food or arrange a visit to the farm please Email us.
