Catskill Delaware Permaculture will lead this 3 day Intensive on-farm butchering course, designed for livestock farmers and food professionals who want hands-on butchering experiences on processing grass-fed beef, lamb and pork. The butchering, processing portion of the course will be led by Mike Hardler in his on-farm butchering facilities and meat shop near Honesdale, Pennsylvania.
