The Carolina Meat Conference attracts a wide range of participants interested in pasture-based meats.

The fifth annual Carolina Meat Conference, the country’s largest gathering of makers of pastured meat, will take place Sept. 25 and 26 at the Millennium Center in Winston-Salem. The event brings together farmers, chefs, butchers and industry leaders for two days of networking, hands-on training and technical and business assistance.

Organized by NC Choices, the conference supports a growing community committed to advancing market opportunities and increasing customer access to pasture-based meats.

Among the conference speakers will be Loren Cordain, the author of the New York Times’ best-seller The Paleo Diet, and Urvashi Rangan, a scientific investigator focused on policy analysis and risk-benefit communication around food safety and sustainability.¬†Attendees can also expect class sessions on diverse topics, butchery demonstrations and special technical tracks for professionals.
