Green Cow Cuts Ribbon, Hosts Cookout

Green Cow Cuts Ribbon,

Hosts Hamburger Cookout

With farmers, butchers, employees and friends alongside, Carrie and Doug Thompson cut the ribbon on their new business venture, Tthe Green Cow, as Steve Grubb and Brian Fassett, who work on the farm, hold the ribbon. The butcher shop, at 21 Railroad Ave., Cooperstown, features grass-finished beef raised on 450 acres near Richfield Springs. “This project has been 10 years in the making,” said Doug. “It’s been a fantastic journey for myself, Carrie and our two girls. It’s so special to bring it all together.” Following the ribbon cutting, the couple invited their neighbors to stay for some hamburger sliders, cooked by Grill Master Steve Gotwald and served up by store manager Karen Slowik, at right inset.

COOPERSTOWN – Doug Thompson doesn’t have anything against toppings, but he believes, at least for the first bite, the meat should speak for itself.

“It will really surprise you when you realize that meat has flavor,” he said.

Monday, June 24, he and wife Carrie opened a butcher shop, The Green Cow, at 21 Railroad Ave., and for the first time local grass-fed beef – a growing ag sector for a decade – is available to local shoppers.
