Event description

Description


The Art of Poultry Butchery will leave you with a ton of knowledge on butchering a bird. Through working, learning, researching and teaching, your guide seeks to revive an age-old craft that has fallen out of step in current methods of purchasing and preparing food.

This class will be hands-on and you'll be taking home two birds.

Wes will start by taking you through the basic anatomy of a bird followed by  teaching you various trussing methods and the breakdown of the bird.  You will practice trussing, butterflying, spatchcocking, de-boning, making ''supremes',  stuffed legs, breast and wings.  As always, this class is hands-on.

You want to take this class because:

  • You're a rural or urban homesteader who wants to learn how to butcher your own chickens or that of a local farmers
  • You're a home chef and want to become more familiar with the anatomy of a bird and proper processing techniques
  • You're a doer and are curious about the butchery process and yearning to learn a valuable, hands-on skill.

The chickens come from a local and sustainable farm called Fenwood Farms in Ancaster. We believe that this farm represents the best possible life for a chicken.

Workshop Features:

  • Access to a professional teacher with extensive experience in butchery. 
  • Local and sustainable chicken. We choose to support farmers who honour and respect the life of the bird.
  • Small class sizes and two birds per participant. There will only be 8 people maximum in this class.
  • Taking home fresh pasture-raised chicken!
