About The Organization

Slow Food inspires individuals and communities to change the world through food that is good, clean and fair for all. If you’re not familiar with the Slow Food Movement, here are their core values:

Good Food: Everyday life should include delicious nutrition; cultivate joyful connections to community and place; advocate for diversity in ecosystems and societies.

Clean Food: Protect natural resources for future generations; help people and the environment depend on each other; promote food that is local, seasonal, and sustainably grown.

Fair Food: Build local cooperation and global collaboration while respecting all laws; require no prerequisite or credential for participation; fight for dignity of labor from field to fork.

Please note that when creating a farm to table meal, we always try to be true to the food that is ready to harvest right before the event; or food that we’ve grown and processed specifically for the event. For this reason, there may be slight variations in the produce portion of the menu.

Any item marked with an asterisk* will contain one or more of the following: Dairy, Wheat or Nuts.

About The Concert

After dinner, guests will meander over to the new concert area under the Royal Palms. Everyone agrees: Whenever Sloan comes to the farm, it’s a magical night. Defying standard categorization, singer/songwriter Sloan Wainwright, consistently demonstrates her easy command of a variety of American musical styles — pop, folk, jazz and blues — held together by the melodious tone of her rich contralto, with the end result being a unique and soulful hybrid. Her family tree (brother and folk-music luminary Loudon Wainwright, nephew Rufus Wainwright, nieces Martha Wainwright and Lucy Wainwright Roche) reads like a who’s who of contemporary folk music. Sloan’s incredible gift is not only her unique songwriting ability but also her dramatically voiced rendition of original songs. Always an avid supporter of Shadowood, this will be the 7th time that Sloan will travel to the farm to share her gift.  Click HERE to check a video from a Sloan concert at the farm in 2013.
