Proud Richard’s & Mueller’s Farm Receive Snail of Approval Award

July 23, 2023 Slow Food Springfield is proud to present Proud Richard’s Restaurant and Mueller Family Farm with the first Snail of Approval Awards for 2023! A sold-out crowd packed Proud Richard’s and enjoyed a local, hearty, delicious three-course menu created by owner and chef Joe Standley and his wonderful staff. Oak Tree Organics, Soap Co. Coffee Shop, Mueller Family Farm, 4 Lees Farm, and Moon Girl Farm were all highlighted in the night’s vibrant fare. Corey and Emily Faucon of Mom + Pop’s, our 2022 Snail of Approval awardee, presented the award to Joe who then presented the award to Michael Meyer of Mueller’s. It was a wonderful evening celebrating the true gifts that our local farmers and chefs give to the people of Central Illinois!
