On Thursday, June 13, 2019, renowned animal behaviorist and author, Fred Provenza presented his theories and findings from his book, Nourishment: What Animals Can Teach Us About Rediscovering Our Nutritional Wisdom. Over 50 people gathered at Weatherlow Farms, a beautiful farm located in Westport, MA that raises livestock and animals to produce what is arguably the South Coast’s highest quality grass-fed beef, lamb, chevon, pork, pastured poultry, and eggs. Weatherlow’s majestic barn set the stage for an intimate pre-talk reception, where guests dined on gourmet fare from local purveyors, such as arsenal cheese from Shy Brothers Farm and organic vegetables Skinny Dip Farm, and enjoyed locally-produced libations from Westport Rivers Winery, Buzzards Bay Brewing, and kombucha made by Salt Marsh Farm.
Following the reception, guests listened to a fascinating presentation by Provenza, whose depth of wisdom, knowledge and experience made for in-depth exploration about what we can learn from animals about nutritional wisdom.
