|After scalding and removing the hair, the carcasses are|
hung on a rack for further processing.
In yesterday’s post, I wrote about arriving at the butchering shed early on Friday morning, finding David and Chris there getting things ready for our day of processing pork. I thought I might revisit and edit last year’s post about this place for the description of the butchering process – most of what’s below comes from that one. Except to say, I did mark the spot on Foursquare this time, and with my second check-in, I became the mayor.

inside the butchering shed.
|These hooks are used to hang the carcasses.|
|This lard press is available for use...I haven't taken|
advantage yet. Next year, maybe!
