On-Farm Slaughter Workshop with Mary Lake @ AJ’s Happy Chick Farm in Albany 12/05/21

This is an educational workshop series on the slaughter and the processing of sheep guided by Mary Lake. On-Farm Slaughter is part of peoples’ food sovereignty, which currently proves to be essential for our food system’s resilience. This humane way of slaughter on farms is a decentralized opportunity for farmers to increase direct-to-consumer relationships and sales in response to the increased bottlenecks at slaughterhouses. RV, VGFA, VSGA and NOFA-VT members get $10 off registration fees.
