What does Slow Food mean?

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The Slow Food movement 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, as well as sustainability and environmental issues.

We wholeheartedly believe in the concept of Slow Food. We reflect this belief by the way we grow our animals - slowly, naturally and in harmony with nature - and by the way we like to enjoy food and encourage others to do the same, taking care over the cooking process, and sitting down together to eat it.

The team at Slow Food campaign for a better food system for all. They work hard to reconnect people with where their food comes from and how it is produced, in order 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 that tastes great from sustainable, local sources.

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 hello@pipersfarm.com.
