Slow Down at Intuition Ale

Karma Acres Farm
shows off at The Slow Down

Karma Acres Farm participated in weeklong event celebrating local restaurants, farmers and artisans that take pride in sourcing their produce and ingredients locally.

Intuition Ale Works hosted this very fun and trendy event.  The theme for the week was “Eat Where You Plant Your Feet.”

Slow Down was a food fair of sorts, with locally-crafted brews and delicious appetizers featuring fresh, local ingredients from some of Northeast Florida’s finest small family farms prepared by some of the top chefs in our area.

Karma Acres showed off their new honey of the month: Tulip Poplar/Blackberry.  It is a bold-flavored North Florida honey.  We also found a new application for our mint infused honey.  It is extremely yummy on watermelon slices.

Participating restaurants, farms and artisans include: 29 South Restaurant; Bistro Aix; Black Hog Farm; Black Sheep Restaurant; Bold Bean Coffee Roasters; Eat Your Yard Jax; Grassroots Natural Market; Heritage Hen Farm; Intuition Ale Works; Karma Acres Farm; KYV Farm; Marker 32; Minorcan Datil Pepper Products; The Patio at Pastiche; Restaurant Orsay; The Spice & Tea Exchange; Sweet Grass Dairy; Taverna; Trad’s of Jacksonville Garden Center; The Veggie Bin.

Earlier in the week, Intuition hosted and/or sponsored other events.

Karma Acres Farm on the Slow Food First Coast’s Tour de Farm

Karma Acres Farm partnered with Conners A-Maize-ing Acres Farm and Sweet Grass Dairy, a 140 –acre family owned and operated farm in southern Georgia, during the Slow Food First Coast’s “Tour de Farm”.

The Tour de Farm was for anyone who wanted to learn about local food production – where the food comes from, and the people who produce it. Families, individuals, groups of friends, cyclists, all were welcome!   Over 12,000 visited over 20 First Coast farms,  attended educational farm workshops, met great chefs, tasted produce right from the field, took walking tours of the farms, and lots more.

Conners A-Maize-ing Acres in Western Nassau county is a 5th & 6th generation working family farm where farm animals are raised as naturally as possible and are treated with love and kindness. The farm is home to over 100 farm animals including cows, calves, goats, ducks, chickens, chicks, rabbits, pigs, our donkey named Jack, peacocks and pea hens. They grow crops in the ground and hydroponically.
