Hudson Valley Foie GrasHudson Valley Foie GrasOperations Manager Contact: Marcus Henley
Foie gras (pronounced fwah grah) is the fattened liver of a waterfowl (either duck or goose, but in our case, only duck) produced by a special feeding process. It results in a luxurious product that is at once velvety and meaty. Historically, foie gras has been cooked in a paté or terrine and served cold. The last decade has seen the gain in US popularity of serving foie gras seared hot with a sweet and tangy fruit garnish.
Hudson Valley Foie Gras is a grower of the Moulard Duck from which Foie Gras is produced. HVFG is situated on 200 acres in Ferndale, New York, a two hour drive from Manhattan.
