Meet the experts and families from Mountainside Family Farms and learn about butchery in our butcher shop! The team will show you how to break down and utilize a whole chicken, using the “3-meal bird” technique. Through the demonstration, you’ll learn more about cuts, tools to properly break down chicken, and kitchen techniques to make the process easy and enjoyable.

Each participant will receive a boning knife and two, vacuum-sealed chickens to take home.

This is a fun, interactive workshop in our Butcher Shop in Black Mountain at 107 Black Mountain Ave. For safety purposes, this class is for ages 18 or older.

The George's and Campbell's love farming!  We believe that animals have an innate and natural design for a happy and healthy life, and that this is the best biological model for animal production and land stewardship. We have chosen to disregard the ways of  modern agriculture which have sadly diminished the quality of life of its livestock, and as a consequence,  have also diminished the taste and nutritional quality of the meat. We produce a premium product that supports local agriculture and promotes healthy communities. Both farms are located in the Blue Ridge Mountains, thus the name: Mountainside Family Farms. Will and Amy Campbell’s farm is located in Saltville, VA. Collin and Melissa George’s farm is located in Swannanoa, NC. 

As farmers, we look to creation and do our best to see that every animal is permitted to express itself to the fullest.  Our cows graze, our pigs root, and our chickens scratch and peck in green pastures.
