Vernon, NY (PressExposure) June 01, 2008 -- Tassleberry Gourmet Foods is a unique consumer product line that is made from its own locally grown strawberries, processed and packaged at the farm and to be sold through ecommerce, specialty food stores, and festivals. Combining unique recipes both homegrown and with the Culinary Institute of America the product line offers gourmet quality and diversified products for salads, meats, and dip at a fair price.
Tassleberry Farm is a 138 acre fruit and corn farm located on Stop 7 Road in Westmoreland, New York. The farm has been family owned and operated since the early 1930's and has been growing strawberries for more than 20 years. The farm produces an excellent quality locally grown strawberry.
As part of the "Pride of New York" program, a member of The Upstate New York Growers and Packers Co-op, and working with the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park New York the products appeal to locals, New Yorkers, as well as national and international consumers that can all be reached through an internet and ecommerce targeted marketing campaign.
The Strawberry Marinade and Strawberry Jamaican Jerk Seasoning were included in online food magazine "The Nibble's" Best Barbecue Sauces feature in September, 2006 was reviewed by Mr. Phil Lempert; Food Editor of the "Today" show in his online magazine "Supermarket Guru".
We have been working on and have just introduced the Strawberry BBQ and Strawberry Butter recipes for quite some time to perfect the balance between our homegrown strawberries and the other natural ingredients used to create what we think are unique products.
We grow it, package it, and sell it ourselves. Our strawberries are very well known in central New York as "sweet & delicious". As "value added" to keep the family farm viable diversification into a gourmet product line has been both rewarding and a lot of hard work. Nothing is more fun or exhausting then giving out 2,500 samples a day at a garlic festival and selling $10,000.00 dollars in product in just two days. It all started with the Strawberry Vinegar both sweet & tangy and has been expanded to include a Strawberry Balsamic Vinegar, Strawberry Marinade, Strawberry Jamaican Jerk, Strawberry Balsamic Vinaigrette Strawberry Salad Dressing and Vegetable Dip, Strawberry BBQ and Strawberry Butter. We are working on a Strawberry Mediterranean Salad dressing as well as a Strawberry & Sweet Corn Salsa (we also grow sweet corn).
The unique consumer product line is sold through e-commerce, specialty food stores and festivals. The products are developed using home grown family recipes and recipes from the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York providing gourmet quality and diversified products for salads, meats and dips. The products appeal to a wide range of consumers locally, statewide, nationally and internationally who we reach through an internet and e-commerce targeted marketing campaign.
