Far Out Burger officially blasted into orbit on Saturday, November 9th, at the Cold Springs Farm (CSF) CSA drop*, with the second run a week later on November 16th. Both were beautiful days – perfect for picking up fresh produce and eating a juicy burger. To all of the adventurous people who tried one of our burgers, thank you! And there were lots of you – we sold out both weekends!
On launch day we served two burgers – the Groovy Burger, featuring caramelized CSF onions, American cheese, and Far Out (house-made) ketchup/mayo; as well as the less traditional
To The Max! Burger featuring Ossau Iraty cheese, bacon, watercress, and a Far Out jam made from CSF persimmons (and if anyone happened to get pictures of this burger, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org). To my surprise, more people actually tried our less traditional or ‘far out’ option both weeks! The second week, on Nov 16th, we served the Groovy Burger again, and offered the Thanx Burger which featured honey-glazed bacon, cheesy creamy pearl onions, and a Far Out jelly made from cranberries and CSF pomegranates. We will continue to have ‘far out’ burgers featuring the great offerings of CSF as long as Beverly keeps producing them!
It was so great to meet and get feedback from so many of you. The next CSA drop is scheduled for 2014, so Far Out Burger will be on hold until then. In the meantime though, we will be posting a few burgers to give you a sneak peek of what to look forward to next year – so please keep checking back, or better yet, subscribe to my blog on the left hand side of this page. Finally, don’t forget to check out the pictures below from Nov. 16th taken by Far Out Friend, Kelly Phillips! You can also check out her Instagram to see more fantastic photos. Enjoy the holidays and have a Far Out new year!
