Looking for the perfect holiday gift or maybe something fun to do during the long winter months in Ithaca??? Curious about where the pork chop comes from? Wonder what the difference is between sirloin, rib and center cut chops? How to cook a rib tip or pork jowl?

We’ll start the evening with a detailed history of the pig, sustainable pastured farming techniques and finish with an in-depth demonstration of how a half a pig is broken down into the cuts you see in your butcher’s meat case. There’ll be lots of time to ask questions, taste our housemade sausages and trim out a few cuts!


Classes start at 6pm and will typically run about 2+ hours. Each class is $55. Class size is limited to 20. Snacks & drinks will be provided.
