in various ways. I do not eat them anymore. We just give them away.
Granny cutting some fat into smaller pieces for the grinder.
Doesn't' that look fabulous ;)
Meat cut up ready to grind and then made into farmer sausage. Mmmmmmmmmm.
Still stirring......This was a job us kids got when we were younger. Gets pretty boring!
Corey and Dad making deer sausage at this point.
All in all this was a fun productive day! I really enjoy doing this with my family. In the past (growing up) we have butchered chickens and beef as well. Definitely missed having my Grandpa there. He would often stir the fat, check the fires and just make sure we were all doing it right!! ;) The last time we butchered was when he was sick, actually i f I search I'm sure I have pictures somewhere...I might have to add to this post yet.
Anyways, hope you enjoyed this & have a great evening!
