About The Slow Food Cycle
The Slow Food Cycle was started back in 2004 as a way to
introduce farmers with the local buyers & visiting guests. The
event is a showcase of sustainable farming in the Pemberton,
Meadows and beyond. The first years of the Slow Food Cycle
attracted a mostly local crowd, however, the event has since grown
in size and attracts anywhere from 3000 - 4000 people per year.
Participants start the event by parking their car in the Village
of Pemberton. Participants first stop is at the event registration
booth located at the Old Community Centre grounds (located before
the Pemberton Meadows, a can't miss). You can avoid the hassle of
having to register in person by pre-registering online at the Tourism Pemberton

Pemberton Meadows. The event typically includes 10 to 15 local farm
participants. Stop at as many farms as you wish, there is no set

Across the Creek Organics and Helmer's Organic farm.
