Meet the pig in your sausage

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

A FARMER has started sell­ing pack­ets of sausages – com­plete with a picture of the ac­tual pig that went into them on the front.

Cus­tomers can visit his web­site to look at pho­tos of his pigs, read the lat­est news on each one, and then vote for the an­i­mal they want to see slaugh­tered.

The new con­cept, likely to leave an­i­mal lovers queasy, has been un­veiled by sow herder Den­nis Buch­man.

He runs the freerange My Lit­tle Farm near Ber­lin and reck­ons meat scoffers need to reac­quaint them­selves with how sausages are RE­ALLY made.

The 39-year-old said: “I think man has lost touch with his food. Peo­ple eat a sausage like a car­rot, with­out any thought about what goes into it.”

Buch­man claims his ini­tia­tive shows due ‘re­spect’ to the beasts be­fore they’re turned into tasty break­fast fod­der.
