On-Farm Slaughter Workshop with Itinerant Slaughterer Mary Lake

  • 209 Tilton Road Randolph, VT, 05060 United States (map)

Howling Wolf Farm will host an educational workshop on the processing of two pigs from the farm. Mary Lake is a professional itinerant slaughterer, butcher and sheep shearer who lives in Tunbridge. Mary learned the craft of slaughter through several years of full-time work with the Royal Butcher in Randolph, which is a USDA inspected slaughter facility. Her expertise and engagement through testimony was essential for the new improvements to the On-Farm Slaughter law. At the workshop, Rural Vermont will present the requirements of the updated law and give room for questions and discussion.

This workshop is a collaboration between Howling Wolf Farm, UVM Extension Center for Sustainable Agriculture, the Vermont Grass Farmers Association, and Rural Vermont.
