**DEADLINE March 20, 2017**

An intensive four-day class for meat professionals, chefs and aspiring entrepreneurs seeking to deepen their craft skills and grow business expertise in a farm-sourced butchery operation. This journey will develop your understanding of what it takes to make it in the meat industry, from sourcing and whole-animal butchery to running a charcuterie program through to managing inventory and pricing. You’ll explore different retail and service models and be immersed in some of the most innovative and successful meat businesses in the country. If you’re ready to start your own butchery business, expand your restaurant’s whole-animal program or want to broaden your knowledge of all-things-meat, this is the master course for you.

Classes take place throughout the Bay Area and Sonoma.

As a student of our Butchery Industry Intensive you become part of a growing network of Food Craft Institute students and alumni who share knowledge and resources and have on-going access to Food Craft and Eat Real Festival contacts, marketing and connections. Students will gain valuable contacts in the butchery business and become part of an extensive network of industry leaders. Your success is our success so we will do everything we can to prepare you for your meaty venture!
