Pig in A Day

Courses to start in December 2018

Master the art of pork from nose to tail and start to finish, with our intensive one day butchery course at the Hillsworth Homestead. As well as learning the basic principles of butchery you’ll learn to make your own sausages, bacon and salami.

Bring home the bacon and much, much more, with our one-day course of hands-on meat tuition from our resident butcher and the occasional guest chef. Pig in a Day will teach you how to get to grips with the carcass of a whole pig, transforming it into a wide range of products and delicious pork recipes.

Working in a small group, you’ll be introduced to the basic principles of butchering a pig and learn to make your own sausages, air-dried ham, brawn, bacon, chorizo and salami. We’ll make you feel at home with a two-course lunch and you’ll be able to take some of your efforts home to share with your family and friends.

Arrive at the Farm & Make yourself at home
You will meet your hosts and start the day with tea, coffee and treats fresh from the kitchen (or the local bakery – yummy!).

Activity one
First you will cover husbandry, the carcass, and how to butcher a pig into the primary cuts.

Activity two
Next you’ll learn how to make sausages, liver pâté.

A two-course lunch of local, seasonal fare and porky products will be one of the highlights of your day.

Activity three
Next you’ll get to grips with fabulously flavoursome chorizo, dry cured bacon and prosciutto-style ham.

There will be time to chat to your fellow class mates, before leaving us, sausages or chorizo in hand.

At just $164.00 per person per workshop, we'll give you the confidence to ‘have a go’ at home in the space of just one day!

We are just putting the finishing touches to the schedules and content. We'll be posting dates soon. If you are interested in learning and join us at one of our fun and informative workshops, please drop us a line and we'll add you to the mailing list and get in touch when we're all good to go!
