Description

At Hagens we are now offering butchery classes. These are run from our South melbourne stall on Saturdays from 9am until 12pm.

Our Introduction to Butchery class covers firstly organic butchery practice, then we demonstrate how beef is broken down into its primal cuts, whilst at the same time explaining different uses for each cut of meat.

This is a great oppurtunity to learn about some lesser known cuts and how to prepare them; and why we approach each cut differently.

Then it will then be your turn to pick up a knife and prepare your own cut of meat.

This is a "hands on class" and the classes are limited to 6 people with 2 butchers to watch over and guide you. 

You will take home the meat that you butcher on the night, also we will provide you with a boning knife and butchers apron to keep.

At the end of the class there is a meal included matched with an appropriate beer or wine. 

*** NOTE IF YOU WISH CHANGE CLASSES WE REQUIRE AT LEAST A WEEKS NOTICE ***

***CLASS DATES MAY CHANGE DEPENDING ON NUMBERS***

WE KNOW MEAT

Hagen’s Organic Meats was established by Royce Hagen in 1999, as one of Victoria’s original organic butcheries. Drawing on almost two decades of organic food experience, Royce and his wife Susan have strived to become Melbourne’s premier purveyor of fine meats. The desire has always been to provide a healthier, more environmentally friendly way of eating.

At Hagens, we know meat.

We know the best farmers and we work closely with them to guarantee the highest quality product. We know what they feed their animals and we know that they treat them well. With Royce personally overseeing both Hagens stalls with the help of his son, Oliver, we know our customers. And we know that nothing can substitute for years of first-hand, organic experience.

Hagens Organic Meats can be found at the Queen Victoria Market and at our long established stall at the Prahran Market.

Loved learing exactly where all the cuts are from and the butcher insights into what is really the best steak! The team there were brilliant, fun relaxed and super interactive, I highly recommend to any foodie with an interest in how the skilled butchers prepare our cuts for us.
