Events with Fat Pig Farm

Welcome! Bookings are now open for cracking Winter Saturday Feasts and an occasional Friday! At this stage it isn’t every week, but we’ve opened up more dates over the coming months. There’s a cut price deal on until end of July to bribe the locals!

We’ve also been at the Hanging Garden Green Grocer market in Hobart. Best keep an eye on Insta for updates.

We have farm tours, summer cruises on the Huon River, workshops and other events for you.

See you soon!

TBC The Whole Pig with Matthew Evans and James Mele: A two day hands on pork workshop. July 2020

Saturday July 25 - Sunday July 26

The transformation of pork is miraculous. Sweet fresh leg meat can become fragrant prosciutto given salt and time. Minced shoulder cures into mouthwatering salami. Middles can become luscious smoky bacon, delicately spiced pancetta, or complex tasting lonzo. Join us on a two day workshop exploring the art and alchemy of pork butchery. This event is sold out. Please email Zara@fatpig.farm if you would like to go on the waiting list. This will also ensure that you are the first to know about future Whole Pig workshops.
