Snail of Approval events are held year round to recognize the accomplishments of these honorable awardees. This smaller events offer opportunities for Slow Food members and others to connect to local producers. We eat, drink and learn more about the food systems that nourish us.
Farm Mobs: “Many hands make light work”
Farm Mobs are volunteer days arranged by Slow Food Utah, a way for us to support some of the amazing farmers in our community with a hands on service project. We plan two mobs in the spring months and two in the fall. We get to work on the farm and end the day with a potluck to reflect and enjoy a “slow day” on the farm.
April 15, 2023: Pyne Farms
Pyne Farms has been growing tree ripe apples in Utah for more than 40 years, specializing in a number of varieties. At April’s farm mob, we will work to plant a new block of apple trees. The farm will provide light snacks and water to volunteers.
