Johnson County Library will present a unique program with Local Pig butchers who will demonstrate how to butcher half a hog and discuss locally sourced products and humanely raised meats. Books and Butchers will be held at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday November 3, at the Central Resource Library, 9875 W. 87th Street, Overland Park, KS.
We have all seen the meat section at the grocery store. We all know what pork chops, bacon and sausage look like. How did they get from the farm to your table? Alex Pope, butcher and charcuterier at the Local Pig will provide the details as he demonstrates his butchering techniques and what he learned about the trade by reading books.
All ages welcome. Parental discretion recommended. Registration is not required. Interpretive services and other accommodations for those with special needs are available by contacting Library staff at least one week in advance of the program. For more information visit www.jocolibrary.org/booksandbutchers or call (913) 826-4600.
