Location: Tour starts at Sand Creek Farm in Cameron, Texas
On April 9 Slow Food Austinites will experience the local food chain, traveling with our food from its farm of origin til it lands on our plates as a delicious cafe lunch, enjoyed with a lively discussion of our local food future.
At 11 a.m. we’ll start at Sand Creek Farm in Cameron and experience their raw milk dairy, grassfed beef cattle, pigs, poultry and vegetable crops, and, if we play our cards right, possibly a hay ride! Everyone will have the opportunity to purchase farm goods, so bring your coolers.
Then we caravan to Monument Cafe in Georgetown, nationally celebrated for seriously good diner food featuring sustainable farm goods. Cafe owners will soon be opening Monument Market next door, a storefront offering fresh produce, naturally raised meats, dairy, and more, ALL of it made or grown locally and in Texas.
Lunch is served at 2 p.m. Cafe chefs will craft Sand Creek’s delicious meats, dairy and produce into a springtime meal, which we’ll enjoy while Monument owner Rusty Winkstern explains his vision for local food marketing. Your ticket of $24.00 covers lunch (including gratuity and tax).
