Butchering Book

Butchering: The How To...

To some this might turn you away from my blog but I hope not, because butchering is a natural part of farming. To me I look at it this way...Why wouldn't you want to raise your own meat to provide for your family rather than buying it in the grocery store where you haven't seen the farms it came from?

A label can say "organic" but that JUST means they fed organic feed, which isn't hard to do, and they make up for it in the prices they charge you! Feeding organic doesn't mean that the animal was humanely raised and cared for either or given a proper life before providing for you and your family. So the book I am recommending for this week is a "Butchering" Book and it is great because we are pretty new to butchering and it has wonderful photos of the process and very easily read instructions. This is a great book for beginners and advanced even!

What I thought was even better, was it gave recommendations on how to preserve the meat and storing of it. I highly recommend this book for those that raise and would like to butcher their own meat. Sending meat to a butcherer can be rather costly so why not cut out the middle man if you can and be more "self-sustaining."

Happy Reading! Hope you enjoyed this weeks recommendation!
