A Funeral. A Festival. A Celebration of Congregation. A Cajun Boucherie.

An effort to expose, educate, entertain and offer the opportunity for folks to witness the harvest of an animal (a hog in this case), the processing, butchering, preparation, cooking and lastly serving the entire Hog, in a celebration known as a Cajun Boucherie.

Green Finned Hippy Farm and Mac's Local Buys have joined forces to bring you Swine & Dine 2015, A Cajun Boucherie, featuring Toby Rodriguez owner of Lache Pas Boucherie in New Orleans, LA. Toby's work has been featured on Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations, as well as Top Chef.  Assisting Toby during this 2 day Cajun Celebration and Feast, will be a lineup of local chefs, led by Chef Josh Galliano.  

Join us on the farm over the course of 2 days, for an interactive harvest, butchering & cooking demonstration, as Toby & Crew prepare and serve to you the entire hog - to be offered on Sunday, over an all day 6 course grazing menu.  Saturday night's Feast prepared by Chris McKenzie of Mac's Local Buys and Chef Josh Galliano will be anchored by the roasting of 2 whole Heritage Breed Hogs from Circle B Ranch (Seymour, MO)  - one in a La Caja China Box (affectionately known as a Cajun Microwave), the other Spatchcocked over an open fire pit.
