Sustainable independent farmers
This workshop is held in our comfortable barn-conversion, deep in the Sussex countryside, with stunning views over the South Downs. We will get stuck in straight away - donned in aprons and using a hand filled sausage maker - you will learn about the ingredients and techniques involved in making delicious artisan sausages. You will learn how to make two types of sausage: a rare breed, highest quality, organic pork sausage and North African Merguez sausage, prepared with our very own, organic Romney lamb. We will also share with you the principles behind our approach to organic, biodynamic farming and the ecological and health benefits of rare breeds. Before your head home, we will enjoy refreshments and sausage tasting together. There will also be the opportunity to purchase pre-prepared cuts of organic, biodynamic meat if you wish to take some home with you.
