Michael Oliver from Otley now runs Primal Cut and creates 100 per cent natural, free-range sausages.

His products have since gained by Coeliac UK and means they have been certified gluten free.

Michael told Stray FM:

"After following a paleo diet for a number of years, I had hoped someone would bring a natural, free-range, gluten-free sausage product to market. After waiting 7 years or more, I decided it wasn't going to happen.

"I then decided to have a change of career - go off and learn how to make sausages and then apply my principles and ethos into the product.

"It took off following Christmas 2017 when my wife bought me a meat mincer. From then, I started to create sausages at home for myself. Once I was happy with them, I passed them on and let my wife, the kids and wider family try them.

"Once the kids started to ask me to make more, I knew I was onto something and from there it's been small tweeks to perfect the product."

Primal Cut is now licensed by Coeliac UK to carry its symbol on their sausages.

This means that the all-natural, free range sausages are certified gluten free.

In addition, Michael says his home-made sausages are preservatives-free and paleo and coeliac friendly.

The products are available at local delis and cafes. Primal Cut is also distributing them at farmers markets and festivals.
