Workshop: Whole Hog Butchery *SOLD OUT*

We're excited to introduce our first Weekend Workshop: 'Whole Hog Butchery' with The Pig & Pantry and Grovenland Farm.

Jordan, from Pig and Pantry, will walk you through how to break down a whole side of pork. The class will work with pasture-raised Berkshire Hog from Grovenland Farm.  Ben and Lisa, farmers and owners of Grovenland, will also be on hand to discuss what pasture raised pork is and all about their farming practices. The class will enjoy samples from a variety of pork dishes, showcasing the different textures, flavours and cooking applications of different parts of the pig.

Each participant will leave with a big goodie bag of pork cuts and grinds (over 5lbs each). 

Learning Objectives: 

The class will learn where different cuts are located, how properly butchery them, and cook different cuts to perfection!
