AMASS MIKELLER ODC
What’s better than a pig party? A pig party with a point. The goal of the Amazing Pig-Out is to demonstrate that deliciousness and animal welfare can and should go together. Thanks to the work of Ane and Jens of Muld Farms, our pigs have been raised to specifications, having all the space, food and love that livestock should have.
In that spirit, we are also donating 50 DKK of every ticket to the Amass Green Kids Program. Everyone should know where their food comes from and children are no exception. By teaching the next generation about sustainable food practices, we hope to promote a better food system for all.
When September 6th,2015, 12:00 – 20:00
What What better way to honor the lives of these five amazing creatures than by cooking them with the utmost respect. We will be preparing the pigs in three different ways: Two will be smoked, courtesy of Warpigs; two will be grilled in the Amass garden; and one will be confited.

The Amazing Pig Out Partner Descriptions
Amass Green Kids Program: The Amass Green Kids program works with at-risk youth in Copenagen schools to teach them about food, agriculture and cooking. Using a hands-on approach, schoolchildren learn about the natural world, food proudction and taste by growing, harvesting and cooking season produce in Amass’ gardens and kitchen.
MULD: MULD is a farm run by Ane Rørdam Hoffmeyer, a former designer, and Jens Vestergaard, a former chef. Envisioning a seamless space from farm to fork, MULD is currently in the works for building a community kitchen to share their dream with others.
ODC: Two years ago Jonathan Soriano and Joachim Friis, with a group of other creatives, bred eight happy organic pigs on beer as an installation project, with the result being a food collective called ODC. Focusing upon sustainability, quality and community, this project became the springboard for various food ventures such as pop-ups and a soon-to-open online butcher.
