Quality Meat from Poultry, Rabbits, Sheep, Goats, and Pigs


Locally raised animals, humanely slaughtered and expertly butchered. This is the best meat we can eat and, with Adam Danforth's comprehensive manual, you can learn the skills necessary to take an animal calmly and efficiently from pasture to freezer.


Every step of the slaughtering process -- from selecting the proper equipment to preparing, stunning, and bleeding the animals -- is presented with careful consideration for the animals' well-being and your safety.


Butcher the carcass to maximize food yield and get the cuts you want. You'll find various options for breaking down each species, with hundreds of step-by-step photographs that put you at the butcher's table to observe the art of cutting and boning, trimming fat and connective tissue, and rolling and tying.


Scrupulous attention to sanitation and detailed instructions for packaging and freezing your meat for the best quality, appearance, and freshness ensure that the animals you process will nourish and satisfy everyone they feed.

Review quote

"[A] breathtaking guide through the paradoxical process of killing animals with compassion. ... For those who have embraced the farm to table movement and are ready to take matters into their own hands, this is required reading. For those whose consideration of meat and poultry begins and ends at the supermarket, it is a transformative wake-up call."

--The Shepherd
