Traditional Premium Rare Breed Tamworth Pork Sausage - available in IOM ONLY
Winner of a Great Taste Award 2018
Judges comment - "The crack of the casing is good, the salt level starts to develop, there is a sweetness to the pork, and the flavour does hold well on the palate. This is obviously a well made sausage with a good breed of pork - these taste very meaty. The texture is good and not too compact or loose. .. The seasoning was well balanced, and a little heat on the lingering pork finish."
A pack of 6 fresh award winning artisanal sausages, approx 500g.
What's so special about our sausages?
Provenance - made on our farm, by hand, from our pasture raised rare breed Tamworths.
Taste : Tamworth pork is sought after by top chefs as the best tasting pork. It came top in a “taste test” carried out by Bristol University which used both commercial and rare breed pork in a scientifically-controlled experiment.
Quality :We hand make our sausages using top quality pork. Lesser sausages are made with offal and mechanically reclaimed meat.
Mature : Tamworths have been bred to produce the best tasting pork, and it takes time to develop taste. Commercial breeds were bred to gain the most weight in the shortest time, and grow about 3 times faster than Tamworths.
Feed : We feed our pigs with the highest quality feed, supplemented by apples from local orchards and locally grown barley.
Welfare : Our pigs are 100% pasture raised in our chemical free fields. The Tamworth pig is well suited to the Manx climate so they can stay outside all year. Lesser sausages are made from intensively reared pork where pigs are kept their whole lives in tiny stalls where they can hardly move.
Rare breed : Tamworths are Britains oldest pure breed pig and are listed as a ‘Vulnerable’ breed by the Rare Breeds Survival Trust as fewer than 300 breeding females remain. Buying Tamworth pork helps to protect the future of the breed.
Manx : Bred, reared and produced on the Isle of Man.
In every way, the very best Sausages.
