On-Farm-Slaughter Workshop at Wild Roots Farm

195 Harvey Rd
05443 Bristol, VT

This is an educational workshop on the slaughter and processing of two goats 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 for the workshop. RV, VGFA, VSGA members get $10 off  registration fees. Enter MEMBERPERKS in the discount code during checkout. For a more intensive FULL day workshop, check out the February 9th workshop with Mary Lake at Vermont Shepherd.
