A Yorkshire butchery business is supporting one of the region’s biggest sporting events, by making 1,000 sausages and 1,000 burgers in one day. 

Country Harvest, located in Ingleton, North Yorkshire, will make the massive quantity to celebrate the Tour de Yorkshire cycling event, taking place on 29 April–1 May 2016.

George Taylor of the business, alongside his brother Kabel, will have to start making the sausages and burgers at 1am on Thursday morning, with the aim of being completed and dropped off at the local cricket club, where a fundraising barbecue will take place, by 11am.

“The cricket club does a lot of fundraising throughout the year,” Taylor told Meat Trades Journal.

“They’ve just had Sheafstock, which was a music festival to raise money, and we did 500 burgers and 500 sausages for that, and we supplied their gala day.”

The business also supplied 200 burgers and 200 sausages for the Queen’s 90th birthday last week. Although Country Harvest has catered to events in the past, this will be the most they’ve supplied.

Taylor was previously named Meat Trades Journal’s Young Butcher of the Year at its Butcher’s Shop of the Year Awards.
