The Meat Course, connecting with the reality of farming animals for meat: Are doing a talk on keeping rabbits and will be exhibiting. They will have rabbits at the exhibition and be there to answer questions throughout the conference about keeping them for meat production at your very own micro-farm.
Now is a good time to take a closer look at farming for meat. The connection between farming and food is being emphasised by retailers, brands, the media and chefs, yet for most people, contact with the reality of food production, and especially meat, has been lost. In particular, almost all of us it seems – tend to avoid thinking about how our meat has died, and the packaged, bloodless, unnecessarily processed meat sold in supermarkets is simply unrecognisable from the animal it was. Their on-farm courses are designed to help people connect with the reality of producing meat, to recover something largely lost today – proper understanding of and respect for how our food reaches our plates. meatcourse.co.uk
