Sheep & Poultry Slaughter @ Turner Farm in Cincinnati, OH

  • Turner Farm 7400 Given Road Cincinnati, OH, 45243 United States (map)

After decades of a slow growing disconnect from our sources of sustenance, we're awakening to a new reality and looking for ways to plug back into the cycle of food raised on farms before ending up on our plates. The most significant experience in this journey is the moment when you participate in the humane slaughter of an animal. It hits a hard reset on your appreciation for the exchange of life for life from the animals that sustain us.

Join Adam for the humane slaughter of a sheep and chickens at Turner Farm. Participants will be walked through the entire process, from stun to cooler, focusing on reverence for the animals while gaining a deeper understanding of the methods employed to get the most out of the resultant carcass. This workshop will offer hands-on opportunities for those interested.

Chefs Collaborative - Ohio River Valley, in collaboration with Turner Farm and Midwest Culinary Institue, is proud to present two workshops with Adam Danforth, who is the James Beard and IACP award-winning author of two books about slaughtering and butchering livestock. He teaches workshops and lectures nationwide for venues such as Stone Barns Center for Agriculture and the James Beard Foundation Chefs Boot Camp. Adam also works with individual farmers who are slaughtering animals for themselves, and because of that, he has a keen awareness of the needs of farmers, especially those who may be killing an animal for the first time.

Proceeds will benefit both Chefs Collaborative and Midwest Culinary Institute.

ORVCC will present two workshops sponsored by Whole Foods, Ohio Signature Beef, MadTree Brewery, and Edible Ohio Valley on Saturday, June 17 and Sunday, June 18.
