Learn how to humanely kill and butcher your backyard hens.

Are you seeking an alternative to factory farming and unsustainable food practices? Are you looking to connect with your food holistically for its entire life cycle? This workshop will increase your skills and confidence in humanely slaughtering your backyard hens for your own consumption. This course is aimed at those who want to take full responsibility for their animals, and ethically source their food.

Any individuals who join the course must be fully aware of what will be involved and committed to the concept of home slaughtering.

This workshop covers chicken anatomy, humane slaughtering practices, beak-to-tail cooking, and equipment. You will receive hands-on practical lessons on how to slaughter, de-feather and butcher your chickens.

A Paddock To Plate lunch will be served on-site that will feature The Patch Organic's pastured and organic chicken and biodynamic veggies.
