Ever wondered how you can make your own traditional prosciutto? Or sausage? Or maple-smoked bacon using local heritage pork raised on pasture?

This class, taught by Jake Levin, the “Roving Butcher”, will take you step-by-step from a live pig that was raised organically by Red Shirt Farm all the way to the delicious brined, smoked, cured, and stuffed end products that many know and love. Along the way, you’ll learn how to properly and humanely dispatch, break down, and butcher a whole animal and how to use all of those odd bits to make amazing value-added products that will impress your friends and family. You’ll also get to sample some delicious pork products made by Jake throughout the class.
