Meredith Leigh, author of The Ethical Meat Handbook: A Complete Guide to Home Butchery, Charcuterie, and Cooking for the Conscious Omnivore and butcher Matt Helms of The Chop Shop Butchery in Asheville, NC will team up for this exciting workshop focusing on beef production and butchery.
This half-day workshop will focus on Meat for Market, with emphasis placed on marketing pasture-raised beef – from the primals to skillet – for an all-female audience! Topics to be covered in the workshop will include: an overview of the “state of meat” in NC, marketing strategies and how they impact your bottom line, carcass breakdown paired with different cooking techniques for different cuts. The workshop will conclude with some information on pricing your products, risk management as well as a Question & Answer session.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Lisa Forehand at firstname.lastname@example.org or (919-513-0954).
