” I will start by saying I’ve now harvested a half dozen pigs at my homestead, and have all gone pretty smooth. It’s been very helpful being able to refer to my notes and pictures taken during the course. I had some help from a chef on a couple pigs, and process sort of got away from what I learned at Baker Farm the outcome was not as desirable. I’m now mostly sticking to the Baker way.

I would recommend it because It’s very hands on and informative.” –Adam
