My husband and I both really enjoyed the sausage making class. We learned a lot and really enjoyed the hands on experience that came with it.


 Exceeded expectations! Gained great tips and knowledge for this beginner. Kelly and his family fed us well and the assortment of sausage samples in all forms were fabulous! Recommend this class!


The class was very well organized and very informative. Kelly went through everything thoroughly and did a great job of explaining techniques and processes. The hands-on portion of the class was fun and something you don't get with many of them.
