Why doesn’t Jones Dairy Farm sell dairy products?
Our company was founded as a dairy farm. We made cheese and butter and hence the name Jones Dairy Farm. Pork sausage became a part of what we made…and the reason we are best known. Although we eventually stopped making dairy products to focus on pork sausage, bacon, ham, etc., the company name was already established so now it’s just a great conversation piece.

What is the difference between cured and uncured?
No nitrates are added to our bacon. Sodium nitrite is used in the brine. According to our R&D dept, bacon by definition is a cured product using salt, sugar or nitrates/nitrites. Nitrite provides protection against some foodborne illnesses. Bacon can be cured with naturally occurring nitrates/nitrites found in celery powder and sea salt. These are labeled as “uncured” because nitrite isn’t used as an independent ingredient. So some products state “no added nitrite” which is true, they aren’t adding nitrites directly. They use sea salt and celery powder and label the product with the “naturally occurring” terminology. But it’s not really nitrite/nitrate free. Please call our customer service department if you have further questions/concerns.

What makes it a German Brat?
What makes it German is that it came from a German master sausage maker.
Jagarwurst is a hunter sausage. Pork belly is not standard as the meat block and the spices vary but all of them are highly spiced because the sausage was traditionally eaten cold. Mustard seeds are common.
