Experience the art of butchery with Kunekune hogs.

Join us for a full day workshop focused on pork production’s most significant aspect, hog butchery. Guided by our livestock manager, participants will gain key skills ranging from harvesting, scalding, scrapping, eviscerating, and the break-down into primal and individual cuts.

This session offers insight into regenerative pork production and is ideal for homesteaders, hunters, aspiring livestock managers, and anyone interested to learn meat processing techniques. Your ticket includes light refreshments and a farm-fresh lunch.

Make room in the freezer! We will be sharing the butchered pork from this workshop with participants, so make sure you bring a cooler (and ice packs if traveling far). If you have a preferred knife or other butchery tools bring them too but we will have everything needed for success. 

About the breed

A homestead favorite, Kunekune hogs are one of very few pigs that can graze grass and thrive on forage alone, with little to no rooting. They are also known for producing high-quality lard, which can be used in cooking and baking. Their gentle nature, thanks to their slower growth and calm demeanor, makes them a great introduction to livestock management for first-time farmers.

Stay with us!
