Lamb Slaughter & Butchering Workshop
In this day-long, hands-on work shop each participant will be provided with their own heritage-breed Soay lamb to butcher that they will take home (included in the workshop price).  Jake Levin, "The Roving Butcher", will guide you through the complete breakdown of each lamb from primal sections to finished cuts. Preceeding the butchering Jake will demonstrate the on-farm slaughter of one lamb. Aprons, knives, butcher paper, and ice packs will be provided. Lunch will also be included. (Please bring a picnic cooler to take home yout meat). Soay sheep are a rare heritage breed originating from only two islands off the west coast of Scotland.  They resemble primitive sheep of the Bronze Age and are believed to be the ancestors of the first domestic sheep. Soay sheep are descended from an isolated population of feral sheep on the 250-acre island of Soay in the Saint Kilda Archipelago in Scotland. Soay are smaller then most other sheep. Jake Levin lives in the southern hills of the Berkshires in MA with his wife- Silka- on the land where he grew up. He is a whole-animal-butcher, writer, and artist. When Jake is not working in his outdoor kitchen, he is butchering and making cured-meats at Hudson Valley Charcuterie/Raven and Boar Farm; or on the road teaching people how to slaughter, butcher and cure meats as the Roving Butcher. In 2019 Jake's book the Smokehouse Handbook was published by Storey Publishing. website http://therovingbutcher.com/home/ Dominic Palumbo has been operating his small diverse organic farm, Moon In The Pond Farm in Sheffield, MA since 1991.  Using the regenerative principles of permaculture and eco-agriculture, his farm has been a forerunner in the conservation of a wide range of heritage breed livestock and heirloom vegetables.   Moon In The Pond is an educational farm dedicated to teaching about organic farming, food issues, homesteading and community building.  webstie http://mooninthepond.org
