We are offering a unique opportunity this year – On Farm Beef Butchery Workshop, December 18th 9am-4pm. $125 including lunch.
Looking for the gift of experience?! Perfect for the right person;)
We have become more and more disconnected from how our food is produced and processed, so this provides access to an experience is unavailable to most! Learn from a pro how to break down a side of beef into primal cuts. It will be mostly demonstration and a little hands-on work.
Email info@orchardhillfarm.ca for more information and to reserve your spot.

Aidan Cooper will be leading the demonstration and she is a farmer, butcher, doula, and wilderness EMT. Aidan has been working in small scale agriculture and exploring food systems for the past 7 years. After working for an urban farm in Hamilton, ON, for 3 seasons, Aidan moved to upstate New York in the spring of 2016 to work at Essex Farm, which produces a year round whole diet CSA. During Aidan’s time at Essex Farm she received a crash course in on-farm slaughter and meat cutting. Aidan is passionate about on-farm slaughter and butchery and connecting omnivores to the process of responsibly harvesting and preparing their meat. Since leaving Essex Farm, Aidan has worked at Reber Rock Farm and Butcher Shop for three fall butchering seasons, assisting with on-farm slaughter and butchery and all the other things that make the shop go round. Aidan currently lives in Wheeling, WV, with her partner David, and is working for a non-profit organization focusing on food access.
