At this first-of-its-kind event in Vermont, Slow Food Vermont is teaming up with Humaneitarian to offer a free, tasty celebration of meat from heritage breed animals – historic breeds that grow slower and are usually more flavorful than their industrial counterparts. Chef Luke Stone (of The Hindquarter food truck) will be on hand to grill raw heritage cuts that YOU bring to this potluck-style dinner! Or you can bring a dish made with heritage meat. Local farmers who raise heritage breeds will also chat with us about their animals and farming practices.
Interested in joining the fun? Please RSVP via Eventbrite. When you do, you'll be sent a list of farmers’ markets and local stores where you can find heritage meats to throw on the grill. Want to cook ahead of time? No problem, you can also bring a dish made with heritage breed meat ready to eat, or go a different route and bring your favorite heirloom vegetable. Slow Food Vermont will provide side dishes. BYOB responsibly.
Arrive at 5 pm at Half Pint Farm at the Intervale. At 5:30, we’ll fire up the grill and hear from farmers who raise heritage livestock. We’ll eat around 6:30 pm. This event is rain or shine! We will be inside Half Pint’s spacious new open-air hoop house.
Slow Food members who attend will be entered to win $100 worth of Vermont heritage meat! You can become a member that day, too, and be entered to win.
