Farm - Chipolatas
Farm, an artisan sausage producer
based in Margaretting, Essex.
Operating from a family run small holding their
speciality is "homemade sausages"
from their own rare breed pigs...
On a recommendation from a business
friend we dropped in to Durrants
Farm, parked in the yard and knocked
on the farm house door to be warmly
greeted by the owners, even when we
mentioned that we were from Sausage
Stockwell tells me that she is
really particular about what goes in
the mix. Only good ingredients are
used, no preservatives, no gristle,
no skin or connective tissue, along
with carefully hand prepared quality cuts of
pork get in to her sausages.
Many producers also tend use off the
shelf flavourings, but these
chipolatas (and the Durrants Farm
Special which we'll sample shortly
no doubt) have home made seasoning
to Emily's own recipe!
A good looking chipolata in the raw!
87% meat approximately we're
informed, good quality sheeps
casings and a tried and tested mix
that delivers. Now cooked up
these sausages are a delight.
Medium firm with a medium coarse
texture that gives a really good
bite and chew. The flavour is mild but
the meatiness is BIG! We like
Thursday is sausage making day each
week, so don't just take our word
for how good these are, go and
sample some for yourself!
