The Stadtjäger is a locally produced air-dried sausage. It comprises 100% meat from organic city pigs. The sausages are made by hand in small batches and are entirely a Zurich city product from one end to the other.
The pigs are reared by the Götschi family at the Waidhof farm in Zurich. During the production process, the meat of the whole pig is used, whereby the best-quality cuts such as the filet are made into sausage meat. This, among other things, gives the Stadtjäger its characteristic flavor. The entire processing, refining, and curing of the sausage takes place within the city boundaries. Consequently, if you purchase the sausage in the city of Zurich, the total distance it has logistically traveled is less than 25 kilometers (15 miles).
