Classes, Talks and Events


John has taught whole animal butchery and sausage making to chefs, businesses and families. He worked as a butcher for 12 years, and his classes teach you more about the food you eat, how best to prepare it and how to utilize more of the animal. 

Classes are taught in the comfort of your own home and make a wonderful gift for that food loving friend, hunter or sister. Check back in summer 2022 - we hope to have our own commercial kitchen and would love to host your group for a class. 

Call us to find out more!

Beth taught at the University of San Francisco for six years and loves to coach students young and old (and middle-aged too) on writing.


Her experiences reporting on food and agriculture for the past 25 years and her book Bet the Farm: The Dollars and Sense of Growing Food in America has also given her interesting perspectives on farming today. She is available to speak to your class or book club and can also consult with your business or non-profit. Contact Island Press for a media copy of her book.
