Learn how to slaughter, dress, quarter and further butcher hoofed animals! In this workshop, we'll take apart three heritage breed pigs at Doghill farm in Huntington MA. Learn about butchering, charcuterie and anatomy as we transform these noble cousins of ours into food for us humans. All parts of the animal will be used, including organ meats, bones and blood. Lastly, we will learn to use the sinew for string, hooves for glue. Folks will be expected to roll their sleeves and participate. All this will be done, of course, in the respectful context of interdependence. No experience necessary.
