Please join us for a Potluck and Talk Story at Jileen's beautiful ranch, Pu'u o Kumau in Waimea on Sunday, June 28th from noon to 3pm. Our Slow Meat Attendees will be there to share their experience and Shelby Floyd will also share some exciting information on a mobile slaughter unit that's coming our way soon.
Slow Meat happened earlier this month in Denver and Big Island was well represented with Casey Halpern as the official delegate and Jileen Russell and the Sakatas joining him. This was the second Slow Meat Convention with the intention of finding protein sources that are good, clean and fair and moving away from the factory farmed meat that is so prevalent in the United States
The Slow Meat mission encourages us to eat local meat, lesser known cuts and even to eat less meat occasionally. (Think Meatless Mondays) With this in mind, please bring a Slow Dish to share and as always your own napkins, plates and utensils.
From Waimea: Just past mile marker 17 on Kohala Mountain Road turn left onto Puuhue Road....
From Hawi: Pass mile marker 18 on Kohala Mountain Road about 3/4 mile. Turn right on Puuhue Road....
Puuhue Rd. is near mile marker 17 on the Kohala Mountain Rd. There should be a Slow Food sign for the turn. Turn makai, and drive until the paved road ends. Go over the first cattle guard following the road down, then uphill. Stay to the right, then go downhill to the second cattle guard and stay on the gravel road. If the gates are closed, open and close them behind you. Go until you see the cluster of new buildings which is Puu O Kumau Ranch and drive to the left of the barn.
The road in to Pu'u O Kumau is not paved, but doable with a sedan.
