Slow food, strong connections

Right now, nature is busy giving us a masterclass in the importance of connections and what happens when they fray too thin, or break altogether.

It’s time to dig in and strengthen those connections.

Dig in to strengthen the soil that feeds us.
Dig in and take a stand for a healthier planet.
Dig in to support the people growing our food and regenerating our landscapes. Dig in to the feast and reconnect with those you love.

Regardless of what part we play in the cycle of production and consumption, we’re all deeply entrenched in a lifestyle based on extracting the greatest yield with the least effort in the shortest time. Everything is modified for speed: chickens reach market weight at five to six weeks old, most beef is 12-18 months old and fruit and vegetables are picked before they’re ripe.

Even while our collective anxiety about the viability of this approach rockets into the red zone, we’re so hooked in that it can feel impossible to change course.

But some people choose to buck the system and work to a different rhythm, in sync with rather than against natural systems, refusing to cut corners and with a long-term plan for developing intrinsic resilience and productivity. These are the farmers we work with and you are the eaters who support them.

In the short term, producing food this way takes longer, yields less, earns less and requires more patience and skill than relying on artificial props to generate fertility and abundance. But it's this is 'slow' food and 'slow' consumption that builds long-term capacity, amplifies connections and repairs the broken natural systems on which our lives depend.

We’re proud to say that, since 2006, it’s this ‘slow food’ system that we (and you) support.
