Dickson’s Farmstand is a purveyor of a unique selection of artisanal meat and meat products. Our beef, lamb, pork, goat and poultry are sourced from local farms , hand-picked because of their commitment to producing natural, humanely-raised, high-quality and distinctive meat products. At Dickson’s, we connect you to the source of your food: small-scale, sustainable farms that feel just out of reach here in New York City. We introduce you to each of our farmers by sharing with you the stories of their animals, their farms, and their growing methods. Dickson's Farmstand Meats is dedicated to sustainable and educated meat buying. To further this goal, we will be offering a series of classes focused on helping our customers learn more about the whole animal, from field to plate. This New Year, you'll have the chance to learn where a skirt steak comes from by seeing it actually come off the steer, how to use more of the animal through terrine-making, the anatomy of a chicken, and much more. This is a great opportunity for anyone passionate about responsible meat consumption or the super carnivore!
Everything was perfect, informative class, great instructors. 'It was a keeper.' DL
Great class! Aaron was very attentive and informative. Excited to try the jerky!
This class was so much fun! We were very lucky to be instructed by Shane & Margot. Clear instruction, fun activities, great beer and charcuterie upon entering the space, can't lose!! Definitely will recommend to other people!
Great venue and 2 great Dickson staff to take us through the experience Drinks and antipasti plate were a pleasant surprise.
Wasn't as hands-on as I had imagined but it was fun handling body parts as they were hacked off.
We had a great time taking this class. The instructors were great, personable, and full of valuable information. Plus, we got to take home A LOT of sausage! We definitely plan to take other courses that Dickson's has to offer.
Great course, friendly and knowledgeable instructors. Course was a lot of fun
Am slightly cautious when I read tons of only positive reviews - but this class lives up to it! Easy going, generous and informative - Chris and the folks at Dickerson's really want you to share in their belief and enthusiasm in their products, and methods. Great, fun, and useful class. Learned a lot, was hands-on, and can't wait to pick up the product of our efforts!
Pat and Jonas put on a great class and experience! We learned a lot from the experts so we could try to do this at home and we had a great time doing it. Highly recommend to those that want a fun experience and are trying to learn about making sausage.
Great class. 2 suggestions: 1. At the show, the cow was in 3 pieces so it was sometimes hard to visualize where each part came from. Have a picture/chart of the cow, so that we can visualize where on the cow each cut is located. 2. It wasn't always which cut corresponded to typical cuts in a normal grocery store. They always referred to each cut by the specific names they assigned in their store, which were different from a typical store. For example, I wasn't clear where a typical chuck steak came from.
