Traditional Pig Slaughter

January 24 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm

Join in for a fun weekend for the whole family. Pig killing is a great Hungarian tradition. Hungarians love pork in every possible form and have a special fondness for pigs. The main purpose is to make sausage and process that pig  to then salt or smoke in a backyard smokehouse or freeze to last for the year. You can take part as much or as little as you want. There is plentiful pálinka and mulled wine throughout the day. While the work goes on outside, inside the atmosphere is usually convivial and the food is always very fresh and well cooked.
