A public vote has opened to choose a brand new sausage flavour in celebration of an Essex farm marking 50 years of business.

Wicks Manor, in Tolleshunt Major, started the competition – the Great Sausage Mash Up – to celebrate half a century of pig farming.

It launched in early July, with food fans encouraged to invent their own pork sausage flavour no matter how wild, wacky or traditional.

Now, the three generations of the Howie family – owners of the farm – have short-listed three recipes which will be put to a public vote.

The most popular will then be turned into a real, limited-edition sausage and stocked in a selection of East of England Co-op stores.

The choices are pork with honey, pork with chorizo and pork with sundried tomato.

The vote is open until September 14, with the winner announced the following day.
