My son Dave lives in Long Beach, CA and I always take Cher-Make beef summer sausage and hotdogs (per his request) in my suitcase when I visit. It's the only type he (and 4 yr old granddaughter) likes. Do you ship directly from your factory? She turns 4 next week, she wants a desk and summer sausage for her birthday from Grandma. - Susan L.

This was the first time I purchased your product. I bought 2 packages of your Homegame fully cooked bratwurst. They were great! We roasted them over our campfire and they tasted wonderful! I plan to try more of your products in the future. I am always glad to support great WI products. Keep up the good work! - Jane M.

Every time I visit my parents in Wisconsin I bring home a suitcase full of Summer Sausage, and I make them bring as many sausages as they can fit every time they come visit me. Unfortunately I'm down to my last sausage right now, and I'm months away from another visit. My little girls are going to be so sad without their sausage sandwiches for lunch, and we just can't get anything good out here in California. Keep up the good work, and let me know if you can help us out! - Dave L.

We found Cher-Make hot dogs about five years ago and have not bought any other brand since, the flavor is great! - Shirley D.

We live too far from home to get the good stuff locally. We would like to buy online in 50-100# lots. Maybe larger. Please save us from the inferior products that proliferate the grocery store counters. We need our Cher-Make sausage. - Phil B.

I typically don't like brats, but your pepper jack chicken brats are awesome! - Maggie T.
