Announcing the First Burger Summit at the Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration

Griddled, broiled, or grilled, anyway it's fixed, the Burger is the iconic American sandwich

Bison Chipotle Burger

​Fossil Farms is thrilled to participate in the first Burger Summit at The Ellis Island National Museum of Immigration on Wednesday, June 27, 2018. The National Park Service and Evelyn Hill Inc., the food service concessionaire at the Statue of Liberty since 1931 and Ellis Island since 2009, have cooked up a way to celebrate the American Hamburger.

The Summit will take place on Wednesday, June 27, 2018, from 8:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. on the grounds by the entrance. The Fossil Farms team will be handing out samples of their Bison Chipotle Burger, a delicious mix of Southwestern spices and Chipotle chilies.

Tourists visiting Ellis Island can read the Fossil Farms’ Timeline exhibit located outside the Café of the museum.

I am humbled and honored to be a part of this program. I, too, have ancestors who have passed through this building on their way to establish a new life in America. Since Bison is America's original red meat, we felt it was the best choice to offer to tourists visiting both Ellis and Liberty Island.
