We start with a whole pig in two halves and we will begin by making the primary cuts of the first half, this part is demonstration but this is a hands on class so you will be getting involved and hopefully helping to butcher the pig with us.
We will show you how to make home butchery manageable and what to do with all that pork once you have it.
The day will start at 9am with a visit to the pigs and introductions to one another, we will then make our way to the butchery where we will get started on the first stage of the butchery, once we have all the primary cuts we will start to create some of those familiar pork cuts you’ll recognise and maybe introduce you to a couple you don’t.
Around 1pm we will stop for lunch, this will most likely be a pork product we’ve prepare in the morning
In the afternoon we will work with the meat we have already prepared, this is when you’ll develop a sausage from flavours grown on the farm, we will then make sure our flavours work before making our own sausages.
We’ll finish our day with a chat to cover any questions you have, recommend where to buy equipment and you should be ready to head home at around 4:30pm.
Profits from all courses run at Edfords go toward helping support the people we work with at Edfords Care Farm.
We can recommend local places to stay from campsites to luxury cottages nearby, all of which will be within 20 minutes of Edfords Care Farm.
