On-Farm Hog Slaughtering

 Registration is closed for this event
Continuing our homestead slaughtering series from last year, we will be start-to -finish harvesting a hog with Holt Akers-Campbell and Katie Willis at Camp McDowell with lunch provided. In this workshop, you’ll learn butchering and processing techniques in addition to organic and sustainable livestock practices you can implement with the animals on your farm. This is a **limited-space** workshop. Ten farmers can be hands-on for the butchering portions of the workshop and then a small number of additional farmers on the waitlist will be invited to observe. Please only sign up if you can make it!

What is CRAFT?

CRAFT stands for Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training and is a model for on-farm peer-to-peer training and network-building for farmers. The original CRAFT network formed in upstate New York and has been replicated many times since, adapted to meet the needs of each particular place.

Alabama CRAFT includes farm owners/operators as well as farm interns, apprentices, and employees, and aspiring farmers. It builds on past efforts to build community and share knowledge – including but not limited to the Regional Alabama Farmer Socials, and ASAN’s kindling workdays and crop mobs and Skillshare Trainings. Full 2023 Schedule can be found at asanonline.org/CRAFT


Alabama CRAFT is supported through the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Transition to Organic Partnership Program (TOPP). TOPP is a program of the USDA Organic Transition Initiative and is administered by the USDA Agricultural Marketing Service (AMS) National Organic Program (NOP)
