GRAZE at Origins Farm

Feast on meat at Slow Food RVA's event on May 17.

Posted By on Thu, May 14, 2015 at 12:35 PM

It’s all about the setting. Slow Food RVA has held GRAZE events at Tuckahoe Plantation, on East Grace Street, and this coming Sunday, May 17, from noon to 5 p.m., at Origins Farm. This event’s focus is on slow meat — animals raised sustainably on pasture and humanely killed — and will be the organization’s focus for all of 2015. Slow meat is designed to bring “together producers, butchers, thought leaders and eaters of every ethos to address the conundrum of industrial animal husbandry and to celebrate the alternatives,” according to Slow Food’s national website.

A cavalcade of local chefs are participating: Comfort’s Alley and Travis Milton, Will Richardson of Shoryuken Ramen, Metzger Bar & Butchery’s Brittany Anderson, Longoven pop-up event’s Patrick Phelan and Andrew Manning and Andrea Huntjens of Sophistocated Soireés will whip up the food, and Ann Butler from Edible Education will provide activities for kids.

Tickets are $25 and $5 for children.
