Farm to Table Dinner
Saturday October 21st, 7.00pm
We are looking forward to hosting an autumnal farm-to-table feast at Low Sizergh Barn and we hope you can join us.
The meal is one of a series of events being held around the world by the Savory Global Network Hub to celebrate food that’s grown and produced through regenerative agriculture.
This method of farming gives growers and producers like us the insights and management tools we need to work with nature; resulting in more informed decisions that balance the economic, social and environmental considerations of food production.
The evening will be full of wholesome, nutritious cooking and it will explore the ways that consumers like you can build a marketplace for farmers who nurture the soil to grow good food for healthy people and a thriving planet.
Diners can expect:
- A seasonal dinner prepared by the Low Sizergh Barn chefs
- A celebration of the autumnal harvest from our farm and the local area
- Meat reared on land that is being farmed regeneratively
- A short Savory Institute film about the consumer revolution driving the ‘Eat It, Wear It, Regenerate It, Land to Market Programme’
- Reflections on regenerative farming led by 3LM, the UK’s Holistic Management Accredited professionals
The dinner menu features meat, fruit and vegetables from selected farms and producers. It will be a meal filled with peak freshness and flavour:
Raw beetroot, goat’s curd, rocket
Holker wild venison, fennel, heritage tomatoes, watercress, blueberry
Leek & Kendal Creamy cheese soup
Braised kid (or Herdwick if the local goat isn’t ready) roasted squash, black badger carlin peas, thick yogurt & lime
Slow cooked brisket, wild mushrooms, tender stem broccoli, potato

Green Door Artist Exhibition
We’re pleased to be exhibiting pieces by Mike Barlow and Joyce Eldred of the Green Door collective.
The Green Door members’ works can be seen in our café until September 14th.
This new joint exhibition showcases the work based on found materials from Mike and flower paintings from Joyce.
For many years, Mike Barlow has made work from found material, initially beachcombing the Lune estuary and the west coast of Scotland.
“My main concern has always been with the overall design: the elements of colour, balance, texture etc,” said Mike. “However, in the course of working, a meaning, be it narrative or symbolic, often emerges. But I prefer the viewer to make their own interpretations; my pre-occcupation being to work with what a piece suggests as I go along – being led by the nose as it were – up to that point where the thing feels finished.”
Joyce Eldred has been living, working and teaching art in Cumbria for the past 25 years, and the area inspired her to take up painting again.
“I paint various subject matter including landscapes and for this exhibition the theme is flowers’” said Joyce. “I am always looking at new ways of representing subjects, experimenting with different mediums and techniques. I’ve recently explored abstract interpretations and developed my way of seeing.”
“This exhibition brings together contrasting work from two very different artists,” said Green Door administrator Janice Benson. “Mike’s work incorporates some fascinating textures and colours which complement the beauty of Joyce’s flower paintings. Overall, the effect is surprisingly harmonious yet intriguing.”
