Farm to Table Dinner, Kendal

October 21, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+0

£30

Low Sizergh Barn near Kendal is hosting an autumnal Farm-to-Table feast on Saturday October 21st

In conjunction with 3LM, the British Savory Network hub, the evening meal is one of a series of events being held at locations around the world on October 21st in celebration of food grown and produced through regenerative agriculture.

This is an evening of wholesome nutritious cooking using fresh farm and local ingredients. But it is also an evening for discovering how consumers can build a market for farming that nurtures healthy soil to grow healthy food for healthy people and a healthy planet.

The evening will stimulate the senses; there will be delicious food and talk and discussion that connects diners with producers and consumers with their own power to influence.

Diners can expect

  • A seasonal dinner prepared by Low Sizergh Barn chefs
  • A celebration of the autumnal harvest from the farm and local area
  • Meat reared on land that is being farmed regeneratively
  • A short film from the Savory Institute about the power of the consumer to ignite a consumer revolution – the Eat It Wear It Regenerate It Land to Market Programme
  • Reflections on regenerative farming led by 3LM, the UKs Holistic Management Accredited professionals

The farm to table dinner will feature meat, vegetables, and fruit from selected farms and producers. It will be a meal filled with peak freshness and flavour thanks to the farmers who grow nutrient-dense food and the chefs that expertly prepare each dish.

Price

Set menu £30 (organic alcoholic and soft drinks, tea & coffee may be purchased separately.)

Notes about the farm:

Low Sizergh is farmed by Richard Park. The 341 acre farm is tenanted from the National Trust. Three generations of the Park family are involved in the farm businesses. Livestock include 170 Holstein and Swedish Red dairy cows, 700 hens and 200 sheep. Over 50 local people are employed in the farm shop and café. The farm shop is a market place for over 80 local suppliers and uses the services of over 40 local businesses. The cows produce more than 1.4 million litres of milk a year from the herd. 20,000 litres are turned into cheese and 5,000 litres into ice cream. The farm also sells between 60 and 70 litres a day of raw milk direct to customers who call at the farm shop.

Onsite is mental health charity called Growing Well. There is also a 1.75 mile farm trail.

Richard Park and his sister Alison Park trained with 3LM to learn the practice of holistic management at Low Sizergh Farm.

About holistic management

Since 1985, Holistic Management has been used to regenerate soil, and is now the basis of a global movement to regenerate 1 billion hectares of grassland by 2025.

Holistic Management is a process of decision-making and planning that gives people the insights and management tools needed to work with nature; resulting in better, more informed decisions that balance economic, social and environmental considerations.

In the context of the ecological restoration of grasslands, managers practice Holistic Planned Grazing to properly manage livestock — mimicking the predator/prey relationships in which these environments evolved.
