F.A.W.C! Pork to Fork

Sorry this event has been and gone


  • Sat 25 Jun ’16, 9:30am – 3:30pm


Holly Bacon, 310 Warren Street North, Hastings Show map


All Ages



The Vogtherr family from Holly Bacon have been pork butchers for more than four generations, and can count over 100 years of bacon and ham curing here in Hawke’s Bay. Every now and then they let a lucky few in to learn their trade secrets and today is your lucky day. Get down and dirty for the day learning everything about breaking down a whole pig, creating cuts and the best ways to use them plus good old tried and true sausage, bacon and ham making techniques. You’ll make your own sausages to take home but not before your banger goes head to head with the rest of the class’s in a blind tasting competition. Ideal for lifestylers, hunters, cooks and wannabe butchers who want to delve into the mechanics of meat and how to create their own delicious bacon, ham and sausages.

Ticket includes pork course (9am-3pm), course notes and pork cuts booklet, ham bag, lunch, coffee and sweet and post course drink.

Make your way to Hawke’s Bay this June for Winter F.A.W.C! for four fabulous weekends of ‘out of the box’ food and wine events set in some of Hawke’s Bay’s most stunning locations. Hunker down with roaring fires, musical notes and endless lashings of local produce prepared in warming ways. Glasses of rich, full bodied reds will be taking centre stage as Hawke’s Bay’s food and wine heroes strut their stuff at over 55 events.
