Teaching the Next Generation of Butchers


Welcome and thank you for your interest in Fleishers Butchery and Education Program. For over a decade, Fleishers has trained the next generation of nose-to-tail butchers who have gone on to open shops and restaurants all over the country and the world.

We are taking a temporary hiatus from our renowned 12 Week Butcher Training Program. We fully intend on bringing back this immersive, rare opportunity in the future. In the mean time, we have a full schedule of classes geared towards a variety of skill levels, focus and length. Those interested in a more curated, personalized form of training are encouraged to email us (learn@fleishers.com) with details about what they are looking for. Hands on, participatory, and limited in size, these workshops are the gateway into the butcher’s world.
