Open House with a focus on Local Meats!
Goat Lady Dairy, Randolph County
All friends of Slow Food are encouraged to come out to the country to enjoy the fall Open House. Each spring and fall the Tate Family opens their farm and dairy for visitors to get up close and personal to the goats, chickens, pigs and cows, tour the organic gardens and pastures, taste and buy handmade cheese and learn firsthand about one family's efforts to establish sustainable, local agriculture. This fall Slow Food is sponsoring a special emphasis at the Open House to help us all learn about the many local farms now producing clean raised meats. We have invited farmers producing pork, beef, ostrich, chicken, lamb and goat to help us learn about their production methods and bring meat for sale. This event is free and open to all except PLEASE, do NOT bring your pets! (strange animals really stress out the animals who live there)
Don't forget to bring a cooler!
