You know, sometimes I, myself, can be one of the hardest people to shop for when it comes to gifts. My family thinks they know me, and really they do, but I am one of those that will purchase something anytime I need or want it, making it hard for them to surprise me. They do know; however, that one sure-fired thing that will get me every time is food.
One thing I am considering gifting everyone I know this year are delicious products from Vermont Waygu Beef.
About Vermont Waygu
In 2008, our family brought back to life a 1790’s farm on a hillside overlooking the Connecticut River. We cleared fields, rebuilt barns and restored waterways. We became stewards of our land and pastures introducing rotational grazing and soil testing. Our goal was to farm in a holistic, sustainable fashion while producing the highest quality wagyu beef for our family, friends and consumers.
Starting with just a few wagyu embryos, we built our herd based on state-of-the-art genetic research. Each cow we raise is full-blood wagyu, descended from Japanese seed-stock and verified through DNA testing initiated at our on-Farm laboratory. We pride ourselves on our science-based approach, and through meticulous husbandry, have developed incredible wagyu genetics in order to deliver the best quality product.
Chef Michael Anthony at Gramercy Tavern discovered our wagyu from the very start and we have been blessed with this wonderful farm-chef relationship. We have grown with the Gramercy Tavern team’s support and friendship, but like Michael Anthony, we believe everyone should have access to great food.
With that in mind, our small team has worked tirelessly this winter to launch our new e-commerce platform so that we can bring our full-blood wagyu beef directly to households. We estimate that only 5,000 full-blood wagyu will be available in the U.S. markets in 2018, and we will be providing 55 of those animals directly from our farm … to your kitchen table.
Vermont Waygu offers a variety of flavorful products including many cuts of fresh steaks, burgers, brisket, short ribs, sausages and cheese. Their extensive collection of fine cuts and products will be sure to deliver a mouthful of delight to anyone that dines on them. Each order is delivered fresh and cold in a foam cooler with ice packs to assure the freshness and integrity of each item. The Vermont Waygu burger bundle is a great way to stock up on beef for your wintertime needs and not have to run to the store week after week. The meat is great in chili, as a hearty meatloaf, classic spaghetti and meatballs or patty them up and give them a few flips on the grill. I think most will agree, no matter what the weather is outside, the taste of a grilled burger cannot be beat. They have a great deal that allows you to purchase 6 or 12 lbs bundles, offering extra savings on each size.Do you prefer the right, flavorful taste of sausages, but not sure what one you want to try first? Sounds just like me, “I want to try them all!” Well you can! The Sausage Trifecta package includes:
- Kielbasa: 1 pack (1 lb) of 4 full-blood wagyu kielbasa sausages wrapped in hog casings. Pre-cooked and smoked with a great flavor, mild and juicy
- Chorizo: 1 pack (1 lb) of 4 full-blood wagyu kielbasa sausages wrapped in hog casings. Pre-cooked and smoked, full-blood wagyu wrapped in hog casings with just the right blend of peppery spice
- Maple: 1 pack (1 lb) of 4 full-blood Wagyu wrapped in hog casings and infused with 100% Vermont maple syrup, a true favorite here among our local Vermont community
I have already tasted the smoked beef kielbasa and it was full of a rich, smoky flavor and juicy goodness. The maple is going to be plated on Christmas morning as part of our breakfast feast. What I love is that they are pre-cooked, so you can slice them up and make them part of a charcuterie board to serve to guests on the holidays or just as a protein snack when you get a hankering for something different.Vermont Waygu products are high quality, full of flavor and versatile. Giving someone a gift of food for the holiday is a great way to do something different and it might even give back to you in return. Maybe they will invite you over for dinner or a party, serving their prepared items.
You can find these and other amazing items from Vermont Waygu online and have them delivered in time for the holiday season. Stay connected socially to see what tasty deals they have to offer this holiday season.
