A TRULY LOCAL PROJECT
Crag House Farm is a working farm, with livestock. The Farm produces its own beef and lamb. Meat is picked up from the local abattoir, and turned into our own burgers, steaks, cuts of meat and sausages, as part of the Butchery Project.
TEACHING TRANSFERRABLE SKILLS
Helping on the Butchery Project requires high standards of personal hygiene. Transferrable skills are taught, including weighing, labelling, food safety and health and safety. These are skills which are very transferrable into the workplace in the food industry, as well as being useful general life-skills.
SOMETHING TO BE PROUD OF
Those on the project help to take products down to the Farm Shop in the Granary on site. Looking extremely smart in their workwear, taking products which they know will soon be snapped up by customers and helping the Project Leader to stock up the Farm Shop’s supplies, is all extremely encouraging for those involved with the project.
Learning new skills and gaining enough confidence to mix with the general public in the Farm Shop is hugely beneficial. It is simply a massive step forward, and it’s life-changing.
