It is time to turn the herd away from the tyranny of cheap meat. Slow Meat is the global Slow Food gathering that assembles producers, butchers, thought leaders and eaters of every ethos in a safe environment to address the conundrum of industrial animal husbandry and to celebrate the alternatives.

What is Slow Meat?

Slow Meat is meat raised without a blind devotion to scale and with minimal impact on the environment. It is a fair deal for producers and processors. It is public understanding and appreciation of meat’s value. Slow Meat is a global gathering that convenes a diversity of opinions and experiences to shape the future of meat. We will host our second edition of Slow Meat June 4–6, 2015 in Denver, Colorado. The weekend of eatings and meetings will provide a safe haven to learn and to inspire actions that address the tyranny of cheap meat in an age of animal and financial confinement. We will celebrate those who raise better meat and assemble a diverse group of delegates, involved in all stages from field to fork, in order to identify strategies that show great promise and to gain commitments from a global community of eaters to craft next steps towards a better world for the animals, for communities and for ecological health.
