    • Who teaches the PMC classes?
      Students in each class are purchasing live animals from small farmers (with the help of the PMC, who acts as a liaison between the farmers and the students). Because the students are the owners of the live animals, and they will only be using the meat from the live animals for their own personal consumption (and not reselling it to other consumers), the owners of those live animals have the right to process it themselves. Or, in the case of the PMC, students have the right to hire the PMC to show them how to process the meat themselves. The PMC essentially acts as a private instructor to private citizens; we are neither a meat processor nor a meat packager.
