Tickets for Augusta Boucherie are on sale now! Visit www.augustaboucherie.com to get your ticket.
The Butchery – or “Boucherie” in French – is an age-old tradition. Friends, neighbors and family members gather to help butcher livestock and preserve meat in the fall, assuring that all parts of the animals are used for sustenance.
This will be a not to be missed event!
