On-Farm-Slaughter Workshop at Vermont Shepherd

281 Patch Farm Road
05346 Putney, VT

This is an educational workshop on the slaughter and processing of three sheep guided by Mary Lake. Mary Lake is a professional itinerant slaughterer, butcher and sheep shearer who lives in Tunbridge.

Mary learned the craft of slaughter through several years of full-time work with the Royal Butcher in Randolph, which is a USDA inspected slaughter facility. Her expertise and engagement through testimony was essential for the new improvements to the On-Farm Slaughter law. At the workshop, Rural Vermont will present the requirements of the updated law and give room for questions and discussion.

Ticket Price: $40 per workshop or $70 for both workshops. RV, VGFA, VSGA members get $10 off registration fees. Enter MEMBERPERKS in the discount code during checkout.
