Butchery 101

Fleisher’s offers a variety of introductory Butchery courses, teaching knife skills, safety techniques, basic anatomy, sausage making, beef and chicken demonstrations and includes hands-on lamb and pig carving workshops. Cooking demos, taste tests and lectures on sustainability and sourcing are incorporated throughout to give each student an overview of what being a sustainable butcher means to us and the communities we serve.

The classes are overseen by Fleisher’s master butchers. We supply you with all necessary equipment and provide you with worksheets, recipes, and in some classes, a set of knives to take home with you. Participants will see firsthand their local food system in action.
