Come and join us for a tasting from local producer, Heck German Sausages on the 21st October 2.30-4.30pm. Try delicious sausages and other tasty meat morsels. 

Owner, Ulrich Heck will be firing up the BBQ outside the Mapua County Store for you to try the unique combination of best quality NZ meats with traditional German sausage recipes.

The family Heck, has a history from the 1850s as a butchery and restaurant in the southern German town of Diedesheim. Ever since, the family has developed new and perfected traditional German sausage recipes and handed them down from generation to generation. 

In 1925 my grandfather Robert Heck moved to Heidelberg, one of Germany’s most beautiful cities. He started his own butchery shop, then leaving the prospering business to my father Günter Heck in 1960. While my two brothers left the family trade, I decided to stay, following my ancestors’ tradition in the German butcher business.  

Ulrich Heck moved to Christchurch aiming to bring the best of Germany’s authentic art of butchery and sausage making and opened ‘Heck German Smallgoods Ltd’ in 2006. They handpicked Canterbury farmers to supply them with premium New Zealand meats, ensuring only the very best ingredients will be used in our products.

What better way to start your Labour holiday weekend!
