The VACAC program will help combat veterans, transition effectively into civilian life.

The Boucherie festival is a 3 day educational event designed to bring the community together to witness the craft of our butchers, farmers, and chefs who work together throughout the growing season to prepare seasonal delicious meals from local, sustainable and organic sources.

The education will consist of safe handling of livestock, humane dispatch, how to evaluate a healthy carcass, butchering techniques, understanding our growing season, identifying problems and solutions for a more healthy food system and how our veterans can take an active role to providing food security for our local communities.
