Our full-day butchery course offers an expertly tutored introduction to the art and skill of traditional butchery. Group size is restricted to 4 so that all guests are fully involved at all times – there’s no better way to learn than by getting hands-on! After a hearty breakfast attendees will spend the day with our butcher as you break down a body of lamb or pork into ‘primal’ cuts and then into a range of retail cuts such as joints, steaks and chops. All guests will take home a selection of their produce so you can show off your new skills to friends and family!

The lamb you will butcher is farmed on the South Downs at the stunning National Trust-owned Saddlescombe Farm and our free-range pork comes from a small farm set at the foot of the Downs. Guests are given the chance to work with the best locally farmed produce and every aspect of your tuition is linked back to our belief in the two fundamental principles of respect for the produce and pride in the skills of the job. Attendees will leave our butchery course with new-found skills and knowledge as well as the enthusiasm to put them into practice.
