Stuffers Supply Company: Stuffers has a large variety of interesting and innovative products for sausage making. New products are derived from common products (vinegar, celery, etc) that are becoming popular to use in sausage. They believe sausage-making is entering an interesting time. Traditionally, it was a way to use the meat that was left over after butchering an animal, and over centuries, became an art form. In North America, the artisan aspect was replaced by higher production, but recently it has swung back and people are looking for more gourmet types of sausage or want to try making it themselves. They have quality products and ingredients that all of those customers find useful. People are usually quite pleased to discover that they exist, as some of their products are difficult to find. They also partner with Well Seasoned and Lepp Farm Market to facilitate classes on home sausage making.
