This hands on Lamb Butchery Day is open to all, from complete beginners to smallholders and even chefs looking to add value to their products. This course is very popular and early booking is strongly advised. 

Under the guidance of our butchery tutor you’ll learn where the different cuts come from and how to break down the carcass. Using various knife skills you’ll be shown how to bone and roll joints to make showcasing cuts such as guard of honour and lamb cushion.   There will be opportunity to practice butchers knots to refine presentation and hone your skills. Once the meat is cut up, it is processed into products such as Merguez sausages, lamb ham, and pate.

The course offers exceptional value as you get to pack up and take home all the meat you have butchered including your batch of sausages.

There are just 4 butchery places available on this course, as well as 4 observer places. The observers are a great way of having a friend or family member join you to help with packing or sausage mixing, or even as an extra pair of hands during the day.










The numbers on these days are limited to 4  people

Most of the day takes place in the butchery which is not heated so warm clothing and thick socks are needed! We provide protective clothing.

The £295 cost of the course includes all the meat from one lamb, tuition, course notes, light lunch and refreshments during the day.
