Breakfast Sausage

Breakfast sausage was originally created by farmers. They needed a way to get the greatest yield from their pigs, and this tasty morning treat was the answer.

Our version is simply seasoned with salt, pepper, and sage – no added sugar. It’s a delightful, protein-rich way to start the day.
