Join us as Doug Layden of Layden's supermarket and other local experts demonstrate how processing pork in Northeastern Carolina was an important social community affair dating back to our first colonial settlers. Enjoy a Saturday morning rediscovering our area heritage as Doug and others tell family stories of a bygone era.
Skipping the actual harvest, pre-registered participants will learn hands-on how to process a USDA approved whole hog. Doug Layden of Layden’s Supermarket in Belvidere and other area experts will teach participants how to make fresh country sausage, links and pork chops. Glenn Rogerson of Tyner will be demonstrating lard rendering and how to make “cracklings” (free crackling samples to follow the demo).
Learn to butcher your own grocery bill in these tough economic times.
Class cost: $15
