Enjoy Seward-made Sausage
Did you know the sausages you see in the Meat and Seafood case at Seward Co-op stores were made by hand by talented staff members? They’re no ordinary links! Seward Co-op has a long history of making sausage. We started the program when we opened the Franklin store at 2823 E. Franklin Ave. in 2009. Today we craft Seward-made sausage in our production facility at the Seward Co-op Creamery building, and one thing that hasn’t changed is our commitment to quality by using local, organic ingredients whenever possible.
Throughout the year, you’ll see a rotating variety of delicious sausages to try. You can be assured that when you choose Seward-made sausage you’re buying sausage made with organic herbs and spices, and meat and trimmings from Community Foods producers. Additionally, you’re supporting your local co-op that provides above minimum wage, union jobs to members of the community.
To share these tasty meats with those who don’t eat pork, we recommend our recently updated chicken hot dog. This popular product switched from a traditional pork casing to a sheep casing, and it is available year-round. A seasonal pork-free option making its return this fall is the Lamb Merguez sausage. The Lamb Merguez is an old favorite that is packed full of herbs and spices for a little bit of a kick. If you like a zesty sausage with a bit of heat, this one is for you and it pairs nicely with a cooling yogurt-based sauce like tzatziki. If spicy sausage is not for you, look for the return of the seasonal Beer and Onion brat. It’s inspired by Oktoberfest celebrations and is crafted using local German-style lager and smoked onions – a great, savory sausage flavor perfect for welcoming the cooler months. No matter which Seward-made sausage lands in your cart, you’re making a delicious choice to support the local food economy.
