Field Trip

WARNING!  If you are squeamish you may want to skip this post!

We actually took a field trip last week!  We don’t often do that, but Gayle organized a tour for us of the place he works.  It is a small meatworks, although the largest employer in the district.  They process cattle, sheep and pigs, doing everything from slaughter to sausages, hams and bacons.  We found the tour very interesting!  Our children have grown up butchering and were totally fascinated.

Sides of beef, and our friendly tour guide.

The best part of the tour–seeing Daddy at work! He was “tender-stretching”–rehanging the sides of beef to make them more tender.

We had to wear plastic covers and hair nets for our tour.
