Burger Thoughts

As we wrap up the #MTBurgerQuest, we have a few final thoughts... This local food campaign has been one of the most exciting projects we've had the pleasure of working on. Local food is near and dear to the hearts of those who work in the Food and Ag network! Farming and cattle-ranching is a way of life here in Montana, and what better way to bring attention to the amazing resources that we have in our state than promoting the consumption of locally produced and harvested goods! While eating our collective weight in burgers, (almost never a bad thing), we've been afforded the opportunity to start the Beef-to-School conversation in one of our rural communities, Anaconda. We've also had the pl

A Lentil Burger of a Good Time!

When the #MTBurgerQuest was announced, MMFEC had the perfect addition! The Montana Lentil Burger is a product of Mission Mountain Food Enterprise Center (MMFEC), the food and ag business development division of Lake County Community Development Corporation (LCCDC), in Ronan, MT.

If we’re being completely honest, initially I was bummed that I’d miss out on their bbq nachos, but after all, I’m committed to the Burger Quest, not that a fresh burger is ever a bad thing. So, I ordered a cheeseburger with a side of “hey, where do you guys get your beef?” Without hesitation, they answered “Sitz Angus Ranch in Harrison, Montana”. After a brief introduction of the #MTBurgerQuest, they han

Cheeseburger in Paradise

What do get when you mix a rancher, a diner, and a singer? Aside from what I’m sure could be a pretty terrible punch line, they were all at the Community Market in Anaconda this past Tuesday. While I’m still working on the punchline, I will say that the 3 made for a very interesting chain of burger events! As I made my way around the market Heggelund Ranch Meats immediately caught my eye, after all - we’re all things #MTBurgerQuest right now. I talked with Tom and Adam Heggelund about their products, particularly their beef. They were there selling direct to market patrons, and had everything from steaks, bulk burger and burger patties to pork and lamb. All of their products are locally grow
