I'm trying to arrange to have Brandon come and slaughter/butcher/process my two hogs in early October. It will be a two-day class with 8 spots for hands-on instruction and additional (cheaper) spots for observational instruction. Anyone interested in attending? Before I commit to fly him out here I want to be sure I can fill the class. It would be in Columbus NJ (40 minutes NE of Philly). I would have limited space on my property for tents (free lodging) and could provide meals for a small fee.

Matt

I don't know how I missed this post. I would definitely attend and would try to get others interested as well. Any tentative idea about dates yet?
Thanks for thinking of doing something like this, it's a splendid idea.

Phew, I was beginning to give up hope. Been busy lately and haven't talked to Brandon recently but originally we were shooting for early October - I think a Friday and Saturday. I am going to reach out to him this week and try to firm things up. I'll repost with updates.

Ok cool - let me know & I'll do what I can to see if I can improve the head count. The other day, I was thinking how expensive it would be to go see those guys in action on Vashon Island, and it would be amazing to learn from Brandon here. My jaw dropped when I saw your post.
November/December would work for me too - although I guess that runs the risk of being a little too cold.

We'll be in Vermont Oct. 11-16 for a prior commitment....hopefully that won't be the only available date Brandon has.


Thanks again!
