Belted Galloway Beef Cheeseburger – Spring Brook Farm Vermont

 

 

Looks like an ordinary cheeseburger, right!?!? This Belted Galloway Beef Cheeseburger was one of the best burger we’ve ever had at Spring Brook Farm, Reading, Vermont. Two guests who joined Kay and I were unanimously agreed!  Well-marbled with just enough fat content, rich mouthfeel, strong beef flavor, but not gamey, and a near-grill aroma combined with a weighty in-hand presence created a multi-layered sensory experience for the eyes, nose and mouth. Join us as we tour their extraordinary dairy farm where they produce award winning cheese.

How Far Would You Travel For a Great Cheeseburger

Answer…. 43 miles! I’m always up for a ride to Honeypie – a wonderful “classic hamburger joint” in Jamaica, Vermont just past the entrance to Stratton Mountain. The ride is half the fun, whether it’s winter, spring, summer or fall, a ride through the Mettowee Valley then up through the Green Mountains is a ride than never disappoints!

Inside this nostalgic nicely renovated 1960s era gas station we are greeted by incredibly polite, hip, young people eager to get us started…. This is great fast food; quality ingredients, locally sourced, sustainable and they grind their own burger meat daily – you can actually taste the difference! The French fries are hand-cut, fresh with a clean delicate taste. The chocolate milkshake I had was like no other; incredibly flavorful, thick and delicious – the next time we visit I will ask what makes their milkshakes so outstanding.

We have taken friends and guests to this wonderful dining experience – always order the double-cheese burger and shake! It’s the best cheeseburger and milkshake I’ve had in a long time, but next time we’ll order their homemade sausages and lobster roll!
