A little about the farm:
Winslow’s Farm grows sustainably grown fruits, vegetables and flowers, including several unusual and heirloom varieties. Its 5 acres of fields and verdant pastures are nestled between rolling hills and freshwater streams of Augusta, Missouri, 35 miles west of St. Louis. Now in its tenth growing season, Winslow’s Farm continues to expand the operation each year.

The farm was acquired by The Lipton family in 1997, from descendants of the farm’s original family that settled there in the 1800s. The barn, house and outbuildings date back 100 years and have been retrofitted to meet the demands of a modern working small-acre farm while maintaining historical integrity. The fields were planted with cleansing cover crops for eight years before fencing irrigation and cultivation was introduced in 2005. Irrigation was brought to field in 2008 and a high tunnel and fruit trees were introduced in 2009. In 2015, a herd of Black Angus cattle was introduced, and the herd doubled during calving season in late winter.

In 2016, new farm managers Kasey Peters and Trevis Carmichael joined the team and brought with them a herd of goats joining a flock of baby chicks, and an old red horse in the barn. The clucking, mooing and baying sounds that fill the air are delightful, but they earn their keep by cutting the grass, clearing the brush, providing fresh free range eggs and fertilizing the fields. An 1100 square foot greenhouse was also added in 2016 which allows crops to be started from seed and planted in succession as needed, extending the length of time the crop is available.

SHAKE 38 / 38 Eats
Apr
19
to Apr 23

SHAKE 38 / 38 Eats

Cooking might not have been Shakespeare’s bread and butter, but it certainly is for St. Louis’ culinary masters!

Thirty-eight chefs at multiple venues throughout the city will be whipping up some eclectic menu items and calling their creations “38 Eats” as part of one of the most adventurous offerings to date during SHAKE 38, April 19-23. Each chef, representing a variety of restaurants, will feature a dish inspired by one of the Bard’s 38 plays. The featured menu items will be available for purchase by guests throughout the five-day event at the participating restaurants.

Winslow's Home's play is Love Labour's Lost and our dish is a pan roasted trout with asparagus, chorizo hollandaise and almonds. Inspired by the region, Navarre, known for its chorizo and trout, this is a classical French combo that pays homage to the princess of France, hollandaise and almonds.
