Finger Lakes Gourmet is the exclusive brand of Dudley Poultry Company, Inc., a locally women owned and operated wholesale, and retail food distributor in the Finger Lakes since 1963.
During its origin in 1963 consumers would see the Finger Lakes label on turkeys, product boxes and delivery trucks. In 2004 the word ‘Gourmet’ was added to the Finger Lakes brand and the strategy was to offer a place where customers could buy exotic and original meats on-line. The strategy at its infancy worked, however, the venture was unable to sustain the exorbitant cost of packing and shipping products so the exotic meat sales only lasted a few years.
Although the on-line order presence ceased, The Finger Lakes Gourmet brand was here to stay and became recognizable locally as the business model expanded in 2007 to include a line of juicy chicken breast, thighs, and drumsticks marinated in a full variety of flavors. The brand was brought to grocery stores and farm markets throughout upstate New York and is now proud to partner with Farm Swarming, combining the values of fresh, locally packed products at fair and reasonable pricing.
Finger Lakes Gourmet is labeled under a wide range of Chicken, Beef and Pork products, conveniently packaged in leak proof, easy peel pouches and ready for dinner! A few products that proudly carry the Finger Lakes Gourmet Brand are:
