Black Pearl Farm contains nearly 860 acres of flooded fields, croplands, marsh, and woodlands and borders Blackwater National Refuge. No, groundhog will not be on the menu, but goose will be. Larry Hindman of Yellowdog Retrievers will provide retriever demonstrations. Participants will go into the field to learn basic waterfowl identification and the proper care and cleaning of waterfowl. Then they’ll head into the kitchen to learn the tricks of the trade for cooking waterfowl from professional chef Vicky Mullaney.
The cost is $125 and includes lunch and a copy of The Lodge at Black Pearl Cookbook as well as a cooler bag with some tasty surprises for the road. Register here. The workshop is expected to sell out quickly.
