This LIMITED SIZE class, led by Bill Parravano, will cover topics such as:

  • mindset around acquiring animal
  • complete and sustainable use of the animal to minimize waste
  • tools needed
  • preparing a car kit
  • size considerations
  • processing station considerations
  • butchering needs
  • cooking considerations
  • storage and distribution discussion

This class will prepare you to begin processing animals from small sized (squirrels, chickens, rabbits, etc) up to large sized (deer, bear, elk).

THE NEXT STEP (after this class):

The Mindset and Strategy Class is a prerequisite to the next class:
Animal Processing Class: PRACTICUM

In this class, we will go further down the “rabbit hole” of breaking down the process of acquiring and utilizing the whole animal. We will also cover the ethical slaughter and WILL BE PROCESSING a small animal… (class time and link coming soon!)AND what will be even more exciting, is when we have our next roadkill find!

**Remember, we are building our spotters, processors, companions, and crafters network NOW so we can use all parts of each animal we process.
