Join Slow Food Minnesota at York Farm in Hutchinson* on Sunday, May 21 to celebrate the season’s first wild offerings.
You'll experience a Slow foraged meal complete with kitchen stories, a wood-fired oven, playful Gloucestershire piglets, ripening heirloom strawberries, nettle patches, a glorious rustic barn, beehives and fruit orchards.
The 10th annual Wild Things farm dinner will be a true fusion of global and local cuisine. Up-and-coming chef Yia Vang of Union Kitchen will cook a Hmong-inspired meal built around Minnesota foraged foods. Foraging was a way of life for the Hmong in Southeast Asia, and when they came to Minnesota, they adapted the dishes of their homeland to the wild plants they found here.
Andy and Irene of York Farm will be giving 2 farm tours during the event and Katharine will be doing 2 wild foods tours. The tours are included with the price of admission. It will be a wonderful day. Rain or shine!
Come share and celebrate Minnesota’s bounty of early spring foraged foods with Slow Food Minnesota!
