So BACON SAUSAGE: It started as a fun challenge. Can we combine the two greatest meats in the world into one complete package? At first, Lance didn’t think so, but he hit the kitchen with bacon and meat grinder in hand. Six months and over 100 variations later, he found it. Big Fork Bacon Sausage became a reality. After a successful test run on February 26, 2011 at Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival in Des Moines, IA, Lance began the process of launching Big Fork Bacon Sausage to the world. We knew if we were going to make sausage in Chicago, and live up to Chicago’s long-standing sausage reputation, we needed to use only the best ingredients, and make something we could stand behind. That’s why Big Fork products are all-natural, nitrate free, with no hormones , antibiotics, or preservatives, and especially no added water. We fit as much bacon as possible into one delectable casing.
