Festival of Sausages – May 4,5,6 2017

WE are holding our very first Festival of Sausages this month (May).

Free sausage tastings every day, fun competitions and demonstrations are being planned along with an event to see how many sausages can be eaten in 60 seconds. If anyone fancies joining in please get in touch with [email protected]

“The range of sausages our butchery team make every day are some of our bestsellers so what better festival to have. Who doesn’t like a good old British banger! This will be a real celebration of the fantastic sausages we make here and we want our customers to get really involved with the various competitions we are planning,” said Mike Clark, owner of Country Harvest.

As part of the Festival we are asking people to come up with their favourite, unusual flavours of sausage. A variety of customer suggestions will then be created by the butchery team and tasted by our sausage panel (anyone fancy being on that?)  at 3pm on Thursday, May 4. Ideas for unusual flavours of sausage – the winner will receive a sausage-related prize – should be emailed to [email protected] or send them to Sausage Competition,
Country Harvest, A65, Ingleton, LA6 3PE.

“We’ve won lots of awards for our sausages and now we want to create something really different so we are asking our Country Harvest customers for suggestions – the more eccentric the better! I’m really looking forward to having a go at creating them – should be a lot of fun!” said award winning butcher George Taylor.

The Festival will also feature George’s spicy sausage challenge at 3.30pm on Saturday, May 6. If you think you can take the heat then let us know so we make enough hot bangers on the day…but beware, they are going to be very, very spicy!

And if you fancy watching how sausages are made then attend George’s free demo in store at 2pm on
