About


We work to promote the greater enjoyment of food through a better understanding of its taste, quality and production.

Slow Food Ludlow Marches is a volunteer run ‘not-for-profit’ group whose aims are shared with thousands of like minded people all around the world through the international Slow Food movement (founded in Italy in 1989). Under the umbrella of Slow Food in the UK we all work locally to bring the principles of Slow Food to our own community.

Slow Food envisions a world in which all people can access and enjoy food that is good for them, good for those who grow it and good for the planet.

We organise a varied programme of communal meals, visits, workshops and business network events which promote and celebrate the diversity and quality of local food and drink and the skills of those who grow, rear and cook it. We aim to reconnect people with the origins of what they eat and to explore how our everyday choices affect the environment around us, its biodiversity and our own health.

Recent events have included: group visits to local farms and small producers; restaurant meals celebrating Ark products; gatherings in members' homes to discuss an iconic cookery writer; a public meeting about sustainable agriculture; a networking event for small food and drink businesses; a children's taste adventure and Taste Workshops at Ludlow Food Festival.

Do you enjoy eating and drinking in convivial surroundings? Are you interested to find out where your food comes from and how it is produced? Are you concerned about the protection of traditional varieites and processes and the future sustainability of local food production?

Then join Slow Food Ludlow Marches, the largest Slow Food group in the UK outside of London.
