Why not try something different – a Butchery Masterclass?
With The Farmers Butcher’s very own Master Butcher – Michael Alexander
Why not try something different? We offer hands on butcher masterclass and bespoke butchery tuition to suit your requirements, groups or individuals welcome. Mike’s patience and teaching skills make this a fun and interesting few hours, he has taught many people and has even featured in magazines and has appeared on Countryfile, showing Matt Baker how to butcher a pig for bacon!
3 Hour Pork Butchery Masterclass
Mike will show you, and talk through the process of how the carcass is broken down into different cuts of meat, and talk about different uses for each cut, and how to cook them. Then it’s your turn to do some butchery. This is very hands on, you will learn how to butcher one side of the pig. We can even incorporate sausage making into the session!
Cost is £105 per person, for a minimum of 2 people. We work on a ratio of one butcher per two people if possible, with a maximum group of four. We find this is a nice sized group and everyone gets plenty of help from the butcher. The price includes a joint you have boned, rolled and tied to take home to impress your family!
All masterclasses are held at Swallowfields Farm, Near Bramshaw with Mike, apron’s and knife included along with plenty of tea and coffee.
If you are interested in a one-to-one masterclass, with Pork, Lamb or Beef, please do get in touch. If you can gather a few friends, we will do a demo specifically for you! Just ask.
To book, or if you have any questions; please email Sarah; firstname.lastname@example.org, or speak to Mike at the shop on 01794 322686.
Feedback received from previous attendee’s:-
Yes I thoroughly enjoyed it thanks, a very full and worthwhile day. Hands on was excellent but as equally as good was the background I picked up on all aspects of meat and butchery, particularly the cuts I didn’t previously know much about.
We now have Masterclass Gift Vouchers available, so it’s easy to give the gift of a Masterclass.
Please do get in touch with Sarah for more details.
