So I have an idea for the spring: I have been cooking up the plan to run a meat-curing workshop with Erika Tebbens for a while now. Erika will be speaknig at the coming NOFA conference on this same topic. She is wonderful person and I've known her a while now, much to my delight. She offered to do a bacon workshop for the farm and I asked her if she would be willing to do something a little different? If I can secure a day at the Salem Community Kitchen she is willing to teach us all how to cure bacon at home! It will be a few hours of talking farms, pigs, and meat but well worth it. I plan to open it up to around ten or fifteen people and charge $50 a person. Whatever is left over after the cost of renting the kitchen and buying supplies will go to Hefier International, a world-wide organization empowering people to live better lives through animal husbandry.
If you would be interested in joining us in the spring, let me know? If enough people are excited about the idea I'll start finding out what it takes to rent the kitchen and go from there!
