Whole Hog Butchery
Whole Hog Butchery!
Sunday July 14th
$50-100 sliding scale
Branch Road Farm - Cottage Grove, OR
If you love pork and want to get hands on experience butchering a whole hog, this is the class for you. Students will learn some basic knife sharpening skills and enjoy a delicious BBQ lunch! Bring a boning knife and an apron and come hungry!
We will be butchering a pastured Berkshire pig, lovingly raised by our friend Bryant Gehring at his small homestead in Corvallis, OR. If students are interested in purchasing some of the pork, it will be for sale for $6/lb.
If the price of the class is too high for you but you are eager to be at the class, please let us know, there are volunteer positions and scholarships available!
This class will be taught by Gracie Schatz who became fascinated with all things pork when she lived in Italy on a Tuscan pig farm and ate prosciutto for the first time. She worked as a butcher in San Francisco for 4 years, raised her own pigs in Nevada City, CA and currently works as a fish monger and butcher at Newman's Fish Company in Eugene, OR.
