Hudson Valley Burger
We have exciting news about our burger at Aroma Thyme. For years we have been using an awesome ground beef from Texas. We always wanted to use something local. And we sampled lots of local ground beef. And we even tried other beef from around the US. All from small family farms. We didn't like the majority of them compared to the beef we were using. But as soon as we found beef we liked and told the farm that we needed 2000lbs of ground beef we hit a stumbling block. It's a lot for most small producers.
Well we just found another beef that we love and it's local and they have enough to supply us!!!
Welcome Wheatley Farms from Durtchess County.
And here is the best part. We are able to drop the price on burgers by as much as $3!
Wheatley Farms has been responsibly raising a small herd of cattle for more than 30 years. We are located in a rural area of Dutchess County in the Hudson Valley of New York State. We believe in locally-grown healthful food, the humane treatment of animals, and environmentally sound stewardship of the land.
What is pasture raised Young-Beef ?
Steve Gotovich, Wheatley's manager, synchronizes the beef reproduction cycle with nature's grass production cycle. Our cows are bred to produce their calves in early Spring. Cows and calves are then turned out to pasture as grass is growing quickly. That way, the young calves benefit from both their mother's milk production and plentiful fresh grass. Grains supplement their diet, as they become Young Beef, prime for processing just seven months later. They never see a feedlot, and never receive feed contaminated by antibiotics, hormones, or animal byproducts.
Pure pastures and environmental stewardship:
Wheatley Farms is located on a hillside; the water supply is spring-fed, with no upstream contamination. The pastures have been untouched by herbicides and pesticides for over 30 years. Our cow herd winters over on hay harvested from our own pastures.
The humane treatment of our animals is a job that we take seriously. Our cattle are raised on our farm of 600 acres, most of which are free-range rolling pasture. The animals enjoy sunshine or shade. They graze and socialize as they please.
Our burgers are from Wheatley Farm in Stanfordville NY.
They raised on pristine spring-fed pastures. Never-ever given hormones or antibiotics.
