Farmstead Meatsmith is coming to White Oak Pastures!

Participate in a complete pig harvest-by-hand, from slaughter-to-plate.
(2) lunch meals will be provided by White Oak Pastures.

Brandon Sheard from Farmstead Meatsmith will provide two afternoon meal experiences. Our full-scale education covers facilities & equipment acquisition, natural (no-nitrite) meat preservation, traditional cookery, and knife-in-hand opportunities for the whole group throughout the day. Photography and film-taking are expected and encouraged all day.

This workshop will include two full days of hand-butchering instruction on a domestic scale with a zero-waste harvest. Day One will involve an in-depth look into the slaughter process. Day Two includes the pig carcass breakdown, with traditional butchery and curing methods.
Bringing a cooler to take home various cuts from the demonstration is encouraged.

Watch and participate in hands-on opportunities as Brandon Sheard demonstrates the start-to-finish methods needed, utilizing techniques of utmost respect and reverence for the animal and the process.

The course is all-immersive, and each day includes a unique meal experience prepared directly on-site, with accompanying sides provided by White Oak Pastures. This first-hand learning will be a one-of-a-kind educational opportunity available through this special second-time collaboration.
