Many cultures have their own traditions for a cold season pig slaughter, even previously our own. We are recreating this tradition here at the farm with our La Tuade day and dinner. The point of this day is have an even deeper understanding of what is involved with eating meat and to fully appreciate the sacrifice involved. I realize that this is not for everyone but I received more positive feedback from those that attended the Tuades in the past than any other event.
Starting at 2pm on Sunday November 19th, we will humanely kill, bleed and scald the pig followed by a butchering demonstration. Lastly, we will have an amazing family style dinner starting at 5pm. Guests will enjoy a complimentary beer toast from our neighbors at Victory Brewing, but the dinner is BYOB, due to our dry township. The class and dinner are $100 per person plus tax and gratuity for both. Seating is limited to 30 guests and reservations are required. Because we have very limited space for this, we require payment ahead of time.
