Basic Pork Processing Workshop

Join us on the farm for our basic pork processing course as we process some of our heritage American Guinea Hogs. Brett Corrieri will be here teaching the proper techniques of butchering a pig.

In this workshop we are going to cover:

  • Humane slaughter
  • Skinning
  • Scald and scrape
  • Basic butchering
  • Various Cuts

     and of course we will cover…

  • Making bacon and sausage
  • Rendering fat for lard


This will be an all day workshop. A light breakfast and gourmet coffee from Holler Roast will be served. Then we will start off covering slaughter, skinning and scald and scrape. We will break to provide a wonderful lunch. Then we will start the butchering processes.

We will be butchering multiple of our heritage hogs at this workshop. One of the hogs will be available for the attendees to take cuts home with them included with the workshop. There will also be some cuts available for purchase if you want to take home more.
