Southern September is still plenty hot, but the signs of impending autumn are unmistakable. Our plans — and taste buds — turn toward fall. Making sausage is a great way to prepare for cold-weather meals.

If you’re considering making sausage links with natural casings, watch Karen Overton from Wedge Oak Farm show you how it’s done in this month’s video.

Wilson County’s Wedge Oak Farm has been in Overton’s family since 1904. Today, it’s a meats-and-eggs community-supported agriculture venture and a source for some of the finest chefs in the nation. The farm’s prized Mangalitsa charcuterie hogs wander and root around the farm’s fields and woods and are used in a specialty sausage line Karen makes herself.
