This butchery short course covers general organic farming practice, a quick overview of provenance, slaughter and storage. Our expert butchers then display how a side of beef is broken down into its primal cuts. Then as a class we pick up a knife and learn to prepare our own joint of beef.


  • Limited numbers 
  • You will take home the meat that you butcher on the night, also we will provide you with a boning knife and butchers apron to keep.
  • At the end of the class there is a meal included matched with an appropriate beer or wine. 

This is great option for foodies and people who are looking to understand more about the animal, where it comes from and how it can be prepared.  

No experience required. Fun and easy-going class environment overseen by the guidance of our experienced butchers.
