Attention Please! Due to unseasonably warm weather our Butchering program, originally scheduled for Jan. 8th & 9th, has been postponed to Jan. 22nd & 23rd in hopes of cooler weather.

Information on the Butchering program:

“Butchering livestock was a very necessary way of life in the mid-19th century. Their main source of meat, pork, has been preserved by drying, salting and smoking for centuries. Join us for our annual butchering and curing weekend, where we will be butchering a hog on Saturday and beginning the curing process on Sunday. This program will be ongoing, so if you wish to see every step, you must attend the entire event. Program is dependent on cool weather. Contact Ben Baumgartner at ben.baumgartner@thc.texas.gov or 936-878-2214 x248 for more information.”
