If your sausage smiles, you know it’s a good one. That’s because only sausages made with natural sausage casing smile. We’re passionate about creating 100% natural New Zealand sheep casings to help our customers make the best sausages they can. Our casings come from one of the purest places on the planet – from New Zealand farms where the animals are grass fed, free range and we can trace our product from farm gate to plate. We make our casings following traditional techniques to produce consistently high-quality products that are second to none.
The result is sausages of unrivalled quality. They have mouth appeal, bite and snap, they won’t split when cooking and have instant access to flavour and texture. Our sheep casings allow the contents of sausages to shine. But most importantly, they create sausages with a curve. That’s the sign of a great sausage, and that’s what makes us happy.
Whether you’re new to the craft or an experienced hand, it’s always good to keep up with a few tips and tricks when it comes to sausage making so we’ve given Luke (the owner of The New Zealand Casings Co) a bit of a spruce up and set him loose in front of the camera to do what he loves to do best – making great tasting sausages using our 100% natural sausage casings. Make sure you listen right to the end to hear his number 1 tip.
At The New Zealand Casing Company we’ve made it easy to practice your sausage craft at home. Try your hand at creating a good old favourite like pork sausages, try something different from our recipes, or impress your friends and family with your own tasty creations. Our delicious and Natural Sheep Sausage Casings are 100% New Zealand Origin, Grass Fed and Certified Halal.
Our 20m Craftsman’s Choice Pack is perfect for first time sausage makers and makes 6kg of sausages (about 85 sausages), our 40m Home Pack Hero make 12kg of sausages (about 170 sausages) and our 90m Hunter Pack makes 28kg of sausages (about 360 sausages).
We make 100% natural sausage casings, from New Zealand sheep. Here you can see casings in three different formats. In the middle is a natural casing in its original form (usually termed ‘bundled’ or ‘loose’). On the top left you have natural casings threaded onto a soft tube, which means less chance of tangles. On the bottom right you have natural casings which have been threaded onto hard tubes, which makes them super easy to transfer onto your sausage making nozzle and no tangles. The product in our online 20m Craftsman’s Choice packs and our 40m Home Pack Hero packs are threaded onto a hard pipe in 10m lengths while our 90m Butchers Best Friend is threaded onto 9 separate soft pipes.
