APPALACHIAN HOMESTEAD SKILL SERIES
HOG Processing on the Farm
 Butchering, Curing, Smoking & Aging

       "I kill and process my hogs much like they did before the "Frigid-Air" made it into these mountains. It can take a week to process a whole hog, and without enough refrigerator space to chill the entire carcass, it is necessary to plan around extremely cold weather.
       Because of the unpredictable weather that we've been experiencing, it is not possible to set a firm date for the hog killing, and therefore I can't plan a date for a workshop. I won't do an actual workshop out of it, but I'll have space for 8 or 10 people to come hang out and learn what they can.
        If anyone is interested, they can call me, ANDREW at 828-622-7231. I'll collect a list of people to contact when the weather seems right."

If you wish to STAY AT AZULE, call Camille at 828-622-3533. $30 the night for one person, $45 for two people.
