Organic Plant-Based Burger

The Don Lee Farms Organic Plant-Based Burger, made with a handful of organic plant-based ingredients, sizzles on the grill just like raw beef. The burger is organic, vegan, gluten-free and an excellent source of plant-based protein. The fastest growing burger of its kind is the only burger to qualify for USDA’s organic certification. VegNews®, the world’s number one plant-based magazine, named Don Lee Farms’ burger the top news story of 2018.

Since its launch, Don Lee Farms has sold millions of the Organic Plant-Based Burger to club stores, markets and on Amazon®‘s Treasure Truck. CookingLight® proclaimed, “when a new ‘beefy’ burger by Don Lee Farms came to the market… we gamely decided to taste them against the other beef-like veggie burgers. And we liked them. In a side by side taste test, we preferred Don Lee Farms’ burgers.”
