Butchery Training Courses


Are you a keen cook or amateur chef? Do you have a small holding or are you interested in home butchery. If you would like to learn about cuts of meat, how to cure your own bacon and make your own sausages then this is the course for you.

The course has been designed to meet all levels of interest and experience.

You will spend time with a skilled knowledgeable butcher and because the course numbers are kept small you will have time to learn hands on skills and experience butchering one of our Brogdale’s pigs.

We will also cover all the food hygiene regulations relating to home butchery.

Every participant will take away some pork cuts and sausages that they have prepared during the day.

We can also arrange Corporate days for team building, learning new skills and having a fun day at our Brogdale Farm site.
