Butchery Courses

Do you want to know more about the meat you eat and how it is prepared? Many food programmes such as “The Restaurant” and “Master Chef” feature wild foods such as rabbit and venison, and some of the cheaper cuts of meats with which many people are unfamiliar with.

Utilising our links with a 125-year established award winning local butchers “Whiteheads”, we aim to run a range of one-day butchery courses and demonstrations that will hopefully help people to appreciate a whole new range of meats and produce some great meals.

The butchery courses are perfect for individuals with a passion for meat preparation, smallholders who want to learn how to prepare the meat they have raised and chefs who want to extend their skills and get more value out of their meat.

Our Butchery courses include:

Sausage making

Pork – meat and offal

Wild meat – how to skin, gut and pluck

Lamb – from sheep farming to meat prep

The full butchery courses are limited to 6 people to ensure that everyone can have a chance to ask questions and receive personal attention. There will also be an opportunity to buy some of the meat that is butchered during the day and order some cuts for making sausages. The price includes all tuition, course notes, light lunch and refreshments during the day.


The experience of getting your hands on a carcass and turning it into several joints of meat ready to cook is priceless. Thanks guys I will be back. Craig Cunningham

My partner and I attended a sausage course at The Wellbeing Farm. The standard of customer service, the venue and the courses were second to none. This was amazing value for money. Thank you Celia and the whole team. We will be back and we'll be bringing lots of friends. The food was fabulous! Sam Walker

If you enjoy your food, I would recommend the lamb butchery course to improve your knowledge about cuts of lamb and to appreciate real meat not from the supermarket shelves. L Bolton
