What you’ll learn:
Darron Marzolf of Falling River Meats will provide a complete instruction on nose-to-tail on-farm slaughter, scald, scrape, and cleaning at Regeneration Farm in Woodinville followed by a whole hog breakdown and butchering class the same day at his shop in Carnation.
We will showcase how to humanely harvest our pigs and will provide hands-on training in the methods of outdoor scalding, scraping, dressing and chilling of the carcass. We will then drive to Carnation and break down the entire pig into each cut one by one. We will demonstrate smoking and sausage making and look at curing techniques as well as discuss how to use every part of the animal and pay it the respect that living beings and healthy humanely raised food deserve.
Regeneration Farm raises happy, healthy and delicious pasture raised pork. Our hogs are crosses of the heritage breeds Hereford, Gloucestershire Old Spot, Tamworth and Berkshire. Our hogs are raised in a holistic management intensive rotational grazing pattern where they are rotated to new pasture dozens of times throughout the growing season and are cared for daily by us and our visitors alike.
A $11 service fee is included in each transaction.
