Pasture Management Tour & Butchery Session + at Profitable Farm Workshop!
The Profitable Farm Workshop is just a couple of weeks away! Do you have your ticket yet to spend the day with speakers Charlotte, Elizabeth, Joel, and like-minded farmers? In addition to the three headlining sessions, we also planned extra activities before and after the Workshop that we think you will love, including the breakdown of half a hog. Check out the bonuses below!
Learn the challenges and rewards of a direct-market vegetable operation in Central Kentucky with one of the region's leading farmers.
The butchery demo will be led by Michelle Cordaro of Marksbury Farm. Michelle will demonstrate a step-by-step breakdown of half a hog. The demo will walk everyone through the breakdown of the primals, initially, and then go into the different case cuts everyone is familiar with. Michelle will be seaming out muscle groups and explaining where cuts come from and how they are traditionally prepared, briefly correlating the cuts to the counterparts on a steer (e.g. pork chops come from the same muscle groups as Ribeyes and NY Strips).
*Will occur simultaneously, beginning at 8:30 AM
Processing Facility Tour
Take a walk through the Marksbury Farm Market processing facility, a 12,000-square-foot multi-species slaughter, processing and packing plant producing both Marksbury's branded products and privately labeled products from dozens of producers throughout the region. See Marksbury's commitment to animal welfare, the poultry processing line, the large animal slaughter floor, the multi-species processing floor, and the certified kitchen and smokehouse.
Pasture Management Tour
The Marksbury Farm Market facility is located adjacent to a 1500-acre farm, most of which is dedicated to sustainable grain production. The areas closest to the facility are home to grazing species, and this walk along these paddocks will provide an overview of the Marksbury pasture management methods used to produce improved soil, better forage, and top-quality meats.
*Will occur simultaneously, beginning at 2:30 PM
