Welcome to the second annual "Le Pied Du Mont Boucherie Festival”, located in the Piedmont region of Georgia. This festival serves as a fundraiser and educational gathering of butchers, Chefs, farmers and veterans coming together to celebrate the start of our growing season. But most importantly we aim to support of STAG VETS INCs', Agro-Cognitive Behavioral Therapy program to help combat veterans transition effectively into civilian life on our facility Comfort Farms, the nation’s first Veterans Acute Crisis Agriculture Center.
The Le Pied Du Mont Boucherie festival is a two-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 and delicious meals from local, sustainable and organic sources.
Not only to is this a celebration it's an opportunity to learn. Our onsite education portion of the event 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 as well as how our veterans can take an active role to provide food security for our local communities.
