Had two recommendations so far. I called both. Here's the info, if you're interested.
I called both Faughtons in Evanston, Wy and Lacorti's in Fredonia, Az today.
Faughtons, in Evanson, does not make summer sausage, only salami. I want summer sausage not salami however, for those that maybe be interested, the folllowing might be helpful.
They require a minimum of a 10 pound order. You provide 7 lb. venison, Faughton's addeds 3 lbs of fat and you'll get back 10 lbs of salami, that you must keep frozen until you're going to use it.
They have two kinds, Regular Flavor for $35.50 for the 10 pound minimum, and Jalapanio with Cheddar for $44.50 for the 10 pound minimum.
They have never had anyone ship raw venison to them for processing. Also, the original Mother and Father that owned and operated the business retired last year, someone else is operating it now, not sure if it's family or some one other than family.
Lacorti's, in Fredonia, make summer sausage. I didn't ask if they made salami too.
They did not say they require a minimum order.
They added beef to keep it from being too dry. They didn't say the ratio of venison to beef fat. If you give them 1.5 pounds of venison, they will give you back a 1.25 pound stick of summer sausage.
The price is $5 per stick (1.25 pounds) for the regular.
The price is $7.00 per stick for any of the other flavors. (1.25 pounds)
They do a regular summer sausage that has a little chili added and has a mild chili flavor. They also do a Jalapanio and a Jalapanio with Cheddar, Black Pepper, and other flavors, at the request of the customer.
They will take venison that is shipped to them. Over night freight and proper packing of the raw material must be made to avoid spoiling during shipment.
That's if for now. Thanks for the referrals folks, anyone with other recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
