    Check out these bad boys....our first attempt at homemade franks. DH had to finish with a footlong (on left)...LOL, but it's really closer to 10"'cause he ran out of meat. The total batch was 22 weiners.

    We made them from our own grass fed beef and pastured pork. We had some for supper. Yum!

    LOL, it must seem like I sell everything. But we can't sell homemade hot dogs because it's a cooked protein product. That would require a Health Dept inspected kitchen (here in NC) - like a restaurant has. We have a Dept Agr inspected kitchen which allows us to do only baked goods, dry mixes, herbs, jams/jellies, pickled items.

    Our meat handlers license allows us to store our meats frozen and transport them for sale at farmers markets. But it does not allow us to repackage or cook meats in anyway. Our beef and pork must be processed by a licensed slaughter house and have a stamped inspection label. (We are allowed to process 1000 head of poultry on farm each year without inspection.)

    Anyway.... alas, no selling homemade franks!

    we really like them though. We're going to try an all beef franks version and a turkey franks version next.

    I'd love to visit your farm. Our pastor lives in Lawsonville....I don't think that is far from you.

    I am sure everyone will donate a few $$$ for the dogs.

    I love turkey dogs. [​IMG]
