Snug Valley Farm Bratwurst Sausage
Classic warming spices are combined with pastured pork for a unique and mild sausage that can be enjoyed by the whole family. This traditionally German sausage is delightful with a dab of mustard and pairs well with sauerkraut.

Keep Frozen or Refrigerated.
Erika of Babette's Table makes this sausage for Snug Valley Farm, our pork supplier in Hardwick Vermont. Ben at Snug Valley raises his pigs outdoors on pasture supplemented with grain and whey. This makes for very flavorful and nicely textured meat.

As usual, these are OUTSTANDING sausage from Snug Valley Farm. As brats, they're on the mild side, but full flavored. But thing that gets me is that beyond the spices/herbs, the flavor of the pork is palpable as well. I'm not used to pork that, itself, has flavor. I had never encountered that before getting some pork chops from here to cook up. I'm used to thinking that pork was bland flavored. Not so. The pork has that richer flavor that is akin to turkey or duck versus chicken (although chicken, particularly the dark meat, from Misty Knoll certain has flavor, the turkey is further flavored).
So the flavor of this sausage is added to by the relatively fuller flavor of the pork itself.
Furthermore, the texture of these sausage is really meaty. I have yet to be disappointed by sausage from Snug Valley. The relatively most bland variety is the salt & pepper, as there's not a whole lot of complexity, but, if you have never tried any of their pork sausage, I highly recommend giving one of their varieties a try.

Snug Valley Farm has the best pork. My partner loves bratwurst; these are a real treat. (My favorite is the kielbasa & hot Italian, which really just speaks to the difference in our personal backgrounds. Snug Valley Farm does all pork sausage expertly, in my experience.)
