Lamb & Goat Roast

with one comment

On Memorial Day 2009, Slow Food Russian River organized a lamb and goat roast. Hosted by Rick Theis and Carolyn Johnson at their Sebastopol home, locally-raised animals were roasted in an outdoor wood-fired oven. Special guests on the video include Mary KarlinMichael DimmockMarissa GuggianaCraig AndersonPaula Shatkin and LaLoo’s ice cream.

The lamb was provided by Red Hill Farms in Petaluma CA.

The goats were provided by Salmon Creek Ranch in Bodega Bay CA.

By utilizing local livestock, the event celebrated the small producers who are preserving farmland as well as humanely raising their animals. A delicious afternoon was had by all. We encourage you to support these and other local farmers and ranchers. It makes sense on many levels: taste, carbon footprint, and sustainability.

Gleaning, Slowharvest Style

We first learned of the Slowharvest Gleaning project through Paul’s wife, Hilda. She had been out gleaning with Aletha Soule, who we previously only knew of as a very successful and creative ceramicist.  It seemed she was doing something interesting on the side and so we got involved and, together with Aletha and a few others, produced this primer on Gleaning. Don’t hesitate to take it literally and start something in your own neighborhood. ~Bob
