Our Director of Meat and Seafood, Scott Kersting, shares the story behind our popular brats – and why people just can’t get enough of them!:
Have you tasted our brats and sausages yet? If you have, you know the second they start to sizzle your mouth starts to water. Your grill and your taste buds are huge fans of this summertime favorite – let me tell you why!
Our brats are fresh, never frozen, and they’re made locally from the highest quality ingredients. Fresh pork and fresh chicken fill our brats; they’re not smoked or altered in any way. These tasty links are all natural, MSG free, and contain no antibiotics or growth hormones.
We’ve partnered with Lorentz Meats, a third generation family-run meat processing company in Cannon Falls, Minnesota. We chose to work with this local business because of their commitment to quality. Lorentz makes small batches of brats and sausages each week, which results in a higher quality product. They also use family recipes, passed down from generations of meat experts, incorporating a strong attention to detail for each brat. Plus, their product is so fresh, our meat departments order the number of brats they need one day and that exact amount ships from Lorentz the very next day.
With 15 flavors to choose from, like wild rice or spicy Italian chicken, our all-natural brats and sausages are the perfect addition to your grill!
