We prefer to use natural casings for our sausage. A natural casing in our opinion gives the best flavor and appearance to the final sausage product. Natural sausage casings also enhance and complement the natural juices and quality of the meat and spices. Natural casings permit deep smoke penetration if you are smoking your sausage. The three primary types of natural sausage casings are hog casings, sheep casings and beef casings and between the three you can make just about every kind of sausage you can imagine. Family and friends will definitely appreciate the taste and flavor.
