Great garlic sausage!

My brother-in-law Tony is a connoisseur of garlic sausage so I bought him a package from West Bridgeford Meats in Tugaske. I visited West Bridgeford last week in order to write an article for Prairies North magazine. It's a very neat operation...

Doris and Shane Oram run a butcher shop in the former grocery store and a certified abbatoir on their farm west of Tugaske. In order to finance the operation, they sold shares to local livestock farmers, who supply the meat. The company website includes bios, pictures and farming practices for many of those farmers, and each one is assigned a number that appears on the package. Customers can browse the website and choose the meat that fits their personal preferences.

Tony says the sausages were fabulous and he'd definately buy them again.
