Warriors are ready to cook up a storm at a sizzling Sixways Stadium this weekend by giving supporters the chance to tuck into a brand new banger dedicated to the Guinness Premiership giants!
The fantastic 'Warriors Sausage' has been developed and exhaustively tested by local producer Ragley Estate Meats - and it is already proving top of the league with our supporters!
Ragley Estate Meats, based near Alcester, are famed for a scrumptious range of individually handmade pies - made to a secret family recipe - their famous faggots, prize-winning sausages, burgers and dry cured bacon as well as organic free range chicken.
And now they have created the new Warriors Sausage after working with our in-house team of dedicated and passionate chefs led by Lawson Shuttleworth with the perfect combination of local, rare-breed pork, black pudding, Worcester Sauce, tomato and selected seasonings.
Warriors fans have already had the chance to tuck into the new sausage with tasters at recent Guinness Premiership games and from this Saturday at our home game with Saracens the club will be selling 'Warriors Sausage and Mash' in the Scrum Club and in the South East Food Village Kiosks.
Brian Ryan, Sixways Events Manager, said: "We are delighted to have been able to team up and support another leading local business in the current economic climate, following our recent partnership with Malvern Hills Brewery to offer Warriors Black Pear.
"The new Warriors Sausage has been hugely successful on taster days and we will now be offering it around the stadium in selected on match days and is also available to purchase from the Ragley Estate Meats chop."
The super-tasty Warriors Sausages are handmade at Ragley Estate Meats using prime cuts of pork reared on the Ragley Estate. Many of the pigs are rare breeds, mainly Gloucester Old Spot, and all are fed a well-balanced diet including home grown barley and wheat.
Celebrity chef Jamie Oliver recently showcased the importance of animal welfare in his TV programme 'Jamie Saves Our Bacon' and a Ragley Estate Meats always ensure this is a top priority with their pigs living in open barns, with natural light and straw bedding. They have plenty of space, and are free to run around, play in the straw or simply bask in the sunshine. Because happy pigs make tasty pork!
"We have really enjoyed working with Worcester Warriors in creating the sausage and it is fantastic that a top class Midlands team is supporting local produce," said Vanda Cookes, from Ragley Estate Meats.
"Here at Ragley, we take great pride in the welfare of our animals and the quality of our meats to ensure that our customers get the best.
"We are really grateful for all the support we have received from the club and hope to continue to work with the Warriors in the future in bringing our products to the Fans."
Worcester Warriors Sausages are available NOW from Ragley Estate Meats Butchers Shop in Hillers Farm Shop, Dunnington. For more details visit www.ragleyhall.com or call 01789 778228.
