Slow Food Sausage Making Evening


On Tuesday 8th January 2008, Sheepdrove Eco Conference Centre hosted a Slow Food Sausage Making Event, (Berkshire and Wiltshire Branch). The evening was presented by our Sales and Marketing Manager, Michael Benson, along with two of our highly skilled butchers, Colin Nicoll and Kevin Casey.

Guests were shown a side of pork and were told exactly from which part of the animal the meat in their sausages comes from. The pig was butchered to show the main pork cuts and the high quality shoulder and belly meat which is used in Sheepdrove sausages.

The evening concluded with a Bangers and Mash supper where guests had the opportunity to enjoy sausages made on the evening.
