Breaking down the beast

We value both the plucky DIY spirit, and the mighty swine from snout to tail. So we're happy to guide curious meat eaters and home cooks as they disassemble whole and half carcasses for their personal freezers. 

Contact Lyndsey@sixbucketsfarm.com if you're interested in scheduling a private class for your crew of misfits.

Little PIGS:              SAUSAGE CLASS

Lil' Pigs Sausage Class - July 14
95.00 125.00

Parents and kiddos, it’s time to play with your food! After a quick tour of the pig farm, the big and little farmers of Six Buckets will teach participants how to safely grind, stuff and link our own sausages. We will learn the basics about what parts of the pig are used to make the best sausage, we will make a mess, we will fry up some of our creations to sample, and students will be able to take home sausages to share with the family. Gain confidence and make some weird memories! Parents might pick up on a few things, too!

Class runs from 10 a.m. until about 1 p.m. Ticket price includes admission for One Little Pig (ages 7 and up) along with their parent guardian. Snacks provided.

The Big One

Whole Hog Butchery: COLUMBUS ROADSHOW

CLASSES.jpg

This is the class for those who want total control over their pig. Join us at the 1400 Food Lab in Columbus, OH as we teach you to break down your very own half hog carcass from nose to tail.

Class reservations include the option to reserve a half or quarter hog. If you choose the half hog option, you are welcome to bring a friend along to help in butchering. Those who purchase the quarter share/one seat option will be partnered with another student to break down their half hog. 

Participants will learn how to excavate their favorite meaty bits from a pig: From bacon, chops, and ribs to lesser-known delicacies like trotters and jowls.

At the end of the class, each participant will take home the spoils of the day’s hard work for their home freezers. A half hog will yield around 80 pounds of meat, fat and bones, so don’t forget to bring a cooler!

The class will run from 9:30 a.m. until around 4:30 p.m. Lunch is included. No previous experience or skills are required.

Ticketing for this event is hosted by The Food Lab, 1400 Dublin Road, Columbus, Ohio.
