For those in CT this is the best italian sausage and it's local. They only sell within the state. It's not pastured but there's no crap or preservatives in it... I can't afford pastured pork but I have tried some local pastured sausage and it was also very good.
For breakfast sausage I always buy Jones (in the freezer section) Same good quality ingredients but not local, they sell everywhere I believe. I'm going to try making my own though, I've been inspired by the sausage thread in recipes.
