Join master Meat Cutter, Donald, F. Palmer, Jr. at Happy Valley Processing, Inc. / Ole Timey Meat Shop for an afternoon of hands on butchering in a federal inspected facility. Each class is intentionally small in order to maintain a small setting between the meat cutter, animal and students. We use whole animals from our own farm and local farms that use our own standards. All students will be supplied a smock and knife during the class. We will be working in a professional slaughter house, so please come prepared by wearing flat shoes and the appropriate attire.
