Frequently Asked Sausage Questions
At The Sausage Shed we are always happy to hear from you, so please feel free to drop us a line or give us a call if you have any queries. In the meantime, we’ve brought together a few queries and answers that may help you.
Where does your meat come from?
We use the finest cuts of meat and our sausages are made from Gloucester Old Spot and Large White pigs that are reared locally. These pigs, from local farms, range free outdoors in the summer and have barn shelter in the winter, ensuring that the animals are happy and healthy.
Has your meat ever been frozen?
No, all of our products are butchered, handmade and hand-packed completely fresh.
How long will your products keep in the fridge?
All of our meat products are best cooked fresh however, sausages will keep for up to 2 days in the fridge and pork cuts for up to 5 days.
