Digital Coversation with Robin and Lucila of Suzie’s Farm

This month we caught up with Robin and Lucila of Suzie’s Farm. Watch and learn from these San Diego visionaries who are responsible for 70 acres of organic produce in the Tijuana River Estuary. If you are inspired by the scenery, be sure to consider attending September 22nd’s Autumnal Equinox Dinner!

Meet the Meat Man

Last week, Slow Food Urban San Diego board members met the man behind The Meat Men: San Diego’s own source of artisan, nitrate-and-nitrite-free salumi made from hertitage-breed pork. ¬†Albert Juarez, the man himself, took some time out of his busy schedule to give us a tour of his USDA certified facility and to explain to us a little of the method behind creations such as “Tasty Treason.”
