Fine Dining in the Summertime
Just in time for the Memorial Day summer kickoff, we have Fox Hill Farm's 100% grass-fed all beef frankfurters!
Way up the Hudson River Valley in the foothills of the Berkshire mountains, Larry and Erna Lampman of Ancramdale raise Heritage cattle breeds -- Red Devon, British White, Murray Grey -- on land that's been in the family for generations. They've long been preparing custom cuts of beef to consumer specifications. And now they're making delicious, nitrate-free hot dogs with a natural casing, which provides that good old-fashioned snap when you bite into 'em.
Brooklyn has always been the Hot Dog Capital of the USA, and the Fox Hill Farm frank is a worthy new addition to our historic sausage culture. A wiener every time.
