Organic Harvest Blend Veggie Burger

The Don Lee Farms Organic Harvest Blend Veggie Burger is made with a harvest of organic veggies, organic brown rice, organic white cheddar cheese and organic mushrooms. It’s perfectly balanced: meaty, cheesy and savory with a touch of umami that will bring you back for more and more. The burger is Organic Certified, all-natural, vegetarian, gmo-free and completely free from artificial flavors and preservatives.

Organic Chipotle Black Bean Burger

The Don Lee Farms Organic Chipotle Black Bean Burger is made with a tasty blend of organic ingredients: organic black beans, organic sweet corn, organic tomatoes and organic onions. They’re satisfyingly seasoned with organic chipotle peppers and organic spices for a smoky kick of Tex-Mex flavor. The burger is Organic Certified, all-natural, vegetarian, gmo-free and completely free from artificial flavors and preservatives.

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.”
