Learn how to dress, quarter and further butcher hoofed animals! In this workshop, we'll take apart 2 pigs at Taproot Commons Farm in Cummington, learning about butchering, charcuterie and anatomy as we transform a whole, noble cousin of ours into food for us humans. All parts of the animal will be used, including organ meats, bones and blood. Folks will be expected to roll their sleeves and participate. All this will be done, of course, in the respectful and open hearted context of interdependence.
