Honouring the Goat: Animal Processing Workshop
Honouring the Goat:
Animal Processing Workshop
For those who've always wanted to get into harvesting and processing their own meat but don't quite know where or how to go about it.
Honouring the Goat provides an opportunity for beginner farmers, hunters and rewilding enthusiasts to get a direct demonstration and hands on instruction on what to do when processing their own animals for meat and leather etc.
The two day workshop will Include information and demonstrations on skinning, field dressing, butchering and tanning. We'll also be making jerky, broth, using internal organs and demonstrate the principles for slow cooking, marinating and roasting in a way that fully utilise as much of the animal as possible.
Why? To honour the life that is given, and to minimise suffering and waste. To reconnect us to the back to land skills that many of us missed learning from older generations yet yearn for. To move away from the industrial agricultural processes that poisons the land and abuses animals.
Ethical meat processing and consumption is possible through small farms, farming with regenerative agricultural practices. Just like those practiced at the hosts site, Djaning.
Learning how to do your own animal processing is an invaluable skill in this age with increasing cost of living and the broader movement back to self-sufficiency, community interdependency and sustainable living practices.

We are asking $345 for the two day weekend workshop. Early birds get 15% off for $295 - closes Sunday 30th June.
Your Instructors are Ei Yang and JJ Bruce.
Ei Yang started Backyard Buckskin after travelling to New Jersey to learn how to tan leather naturally. She currently resides in Northern Rivers NSW and teaches students how to tan their own small and medium sized animal skins at home for clothing, accessories and furnishings using chemical free methods accessible for beginners. She is a passionate advocate for nose-to-tail eating and teaches traditional food workshops such as using organ meats, jerky-making, bone broths and slow cooking all different cuts of the animal.
About the Venue:
The venue is located in The Channon, just a short stroll to the Tavern, shop and village. It is 25 acre space bordering the world renowned Terania Creek. The property has been and continues to be created and used as a fully off-grid, community permaculture play park where people of all ages are welcome. The aim is to re-wild, re-vegetate, and re-inspire, from a degraded cow pasture to a thriving community space full of trees, animals, and food. Fionn and Laura, the co-owners' general philosophy acknowledges the need for us all to transition to a more beautiful world.
They host events in The Shelter; a beautiful multi-purpose, open-air space surrounded by forest gardens, where they run a bush school two days a week among other short courses.
?️ If you wish to camp, plenty of spaces are available. Just be sure to make a note when booking.
