Some ski areas and the state Beef Producers Association are teaming up this winter to offer what is being called the “Ski Vermont Burger.”
The Vermont Agency of Agriculture is taking part in the effort to encourage the buying of local beef.
Ski Vermont Burgers will be sold at Okemo, Bolton Valley, Jay Peak and the Stowe Mountain Resort.
The burgers will be served with a Vermont-made maple toothpick featuring the buy local brand.
And officials say the Vermont burger will taste a little different because it’s made from grass-fed beef.
The program is expected to benefit about 300 Vermont beef producers.
