The steer is a Hereford breed and the hogs are a berkshire/hereford cross and have been raised right here on our farm.  The steer raised on his mother, pasture, hay and a little grain.  The hogs were raised on their mother, and then grown on a non-gmo feed. Everyone signed up will bring a cooler and take home a variety of items- a little bit of everything! Hams and bacons will be taken to a local butcher Monday after class to be cured, and once that’s back to us, you will pick up those at the farm.

You will be asked to sign a waiver upon arrival.  You can attend any or all of the times posted, but the cost is the same. This is a once-a-year class so don’t miss it! Families welcome, kids must be supervised by a parent. It’s a farm, and safety is of the utmost importance!
