Whole Hog Butchering Demo from The Meat Hook

Join Sara from The Meat Hook as she butchers up a whole hog. 

Sara Bigelow left her job in public relations four years ago to learn more about the path from farm to slaughterhouse to grocery store, and has loved being a butcher ever since. She is currently the General Manager of the Meat Hook in Brooklyn, NY. Her favorite parts of the job are the constant snacking and getting to talk people through cooking a cut they've never tried before. 

The Meat Hook is a whole animal butcher shop located in Brooklyn, NY, specializing in local meat from small family farms in New York state. We offer pastured pork, chicken, beef and lamb, and strive to provide good food in a setting that is both unpretentious and accessible.

 4:00pm - 5:30pm The Grand Poobah Chicken N' Biscuits Tasting Session Featuring:

Dan Garrison, Proprietor and Distiller, Garrison Brothers Distillery

In 2004, Dan Garrison walked away from a financially rewarding but volatile career as a software marketing professional to go get Whiskey Bent! A lifetime lover of straight bourbon, Garrison was reading a newspaper story about another Texas vodka.
He wondered aloud to his wife why anyone would make that crap when they could make Bourbon. She replied, “As much of that stuff as you drink, maybe you should. We’d probably save money.”

Two weeks later, he was in Kentucky.
