Our Sausage is made of Farm Fresh Beef, Farm Fresh Pork, and a multitude of fresh vegetables depending on the flavor profile of sausage we are making. The Sausage "meat" is ground for easy mixing and texture. If we did not grind our sausage, we would have Jerky. Other Sausage companies sometimes use other ground meats like chicken and dried bread and certain grains in their sausage meat, usually as a filler or to extend the sausage. If you're eating a cheap snack stick, check your labels, it will have fillers to keep the product and price cheap. Wisconsin Fresh uses fresh vegetables in certain gourmet flavors of sausage.
