    It was so much fun and sooo informative. Al was wonderful! Casual atmosphere which allowed you to get right in on all aspects of the process. Highly recommend this class, can't wait to go back next month for his sausage making class.

Question from AlexD
Is this a "hands-on" class or just the chef demonstrating how to butcher a pig?

Hi Alex! Observe how to handle and butcher meats and fish in our public butchering classes. This is a demonstration-style class.
Answer from AlexD
Ok. Thank you for the response, however, I am looking for a "hands on" type of butchering class. Are there any available?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
We currently don't have hands-on butchering available. You may check back from time to time to see if there will be a hands-on class soon. Thanks!
