Dickson’s Farmstand is a purveyor of a unique selection of artisanal meat and meat products. Our beef, lamb, pork, goat and poultry are sourced from local farms , hand-picked because of their commitment to producing natural, humanely-raised, high-quality and distinctive meat products. At Dickson’s, we connect you to the source of your food: small-scale, sustainable farms that feel just out of reach here in New York City. We introduce you to each of our farmers by sharing with you the stories of their animals, their farms, and their growing methods. Dickson's Farmstand Meats is dedicated to sustainable and educated meat buying. To further this goal, we will be offering a series of classes focused on helping our customers learn more about the whole animal, from field to plate. This New Year, you'll have the chance to learn where a skirt steak comes from by seeing it actually come off the steer, how to use more of the animal through terrine-making, the anatomy of a chicken, and much more. This is a great opportunity for anyone passionate about responsible meat consumption or the super carnivore!
Pat and Jonas put on a great class and experience! We learned a lot from the experts so we could try to do this at home and we had a great time doing it. Highly recommend to those that want a fun experience and are trying to learn about making sausage.
Great class. 2 suggestions: 1. At the show, the cow was in 3 pieces so it was sometimes hard to visualize where each part came from. Have a picture/chart of the cow, so that we can visualize where on the cow each cut is located. 2. It wasn't always which cut corresponded to typical cuts in a normal grocery store. They always referred to each cut by the specific names they assigned in their store, which were different from a typical store. For example, I wasn't clear where a typical chuck steak came from.
Awesome instructors and impressive shop!
Would have liked more hands-on butchery - informative but more of a demonstration rather than a butchery class.
Very informative. The instructors were willing to answer all sorts of questions and really make it an immersive experience.
The instructors were awesome. Loved this course!
Charcuterie, beer, wine, knives, meat, spices, jerky. A great class. Fun, informative. We’ll be back for more!
This class was awesome. Great atmosphere, great teachers.
The class was exactly what I hoped for and more. The instructors were very knowledgable and engaging. Definitely will recommend.
Great class. I make my own sausage but am always looking for ways to improve. This course was very informative. Would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in creating home made sausage.
