Class Details

Butchery is a valuable skill to learn which helps you to expand into a whole world of delicious recipes while utilizing the whole animal. Learning how to butcher at home also helps you to have more connection to your food, to develop knife skills, identify meat cuts, have less animal waste, reduce packaging waste and save money! Class will be held outside and in our open outdoor kitchen. Lunch will be prepared in our wood-fired oven!
