Nose to Tail Pork Processing Workshop
MOFGA’s Common Ground Education Center, Unity, ME
Saturday – Monday, October 12 – 14, 2013
Sustainable agriculture doesn’t end at harvest. Efficient use of every crop component is an important part of sustainable production. This hands-on workshop will demonstrate how you can get the most and the best out of an organic, pasture-raised pig, from slaughter to sausage, using every part but the squeal.
The workshop will cover all the basic techniques of humane slaughter, carcass preparation, breakdown of the major components, and demonstrations of sanitary fresh and preservative processing using the entire animal.
The Nose to Tail Pork Processing Workshop will take place at MOFGA’s Common Ground Education Center in Unity. All equipment for the workshop will be provided. Participants are encouraged to bring own knives if they would prefer working with those. Lunch will be provided each day and will include a variety of fresh pork cuts.
2013 Registration fees: All Three Days: $200 per person. Fees cover materials, take home documentation, a light breakfast, and a delicious lunch each day.
