Strong and bold oregano grown in New York's Catskill Mountains on Thanksgiving Farm — one .5 oz glass jar


Fresh Dried Organic Oregano
One .5 oz glass jar 
Thanksgiving Farm at The Center for Discovery 

This herb is famous throughout the world for adding flavor to any dish, especially meat and fish. We like to rub our heritage meats with salt, pepper, olive oil, and oregano and let it sit for an hour or more so that the aromatic flavors of the herb can sink in. We also like it on our pizza! 

Cultivated on the rolling hills of New York’s Catskills Region under the direction of Chef Cesare Casella, the high altitude and arid conditions produce a strong and bold flavor common in Italian wild oregano.

Thanksgiving Farm is part of The Center for Discovery®, designated as a Center of Excellence by the New York State Department of Health and OPWDD. It is a major research and specialty center that offers residential, medical, clinical and special education programs for people with multiple disabilities or individuals on the autism spectrum. Some of The Center's core values are focused on wellness, high quality food, and sustainability. A high priority of the program is to have it's clients, whom they call "guests," be active outdoors, which includes their participation in farm operations like flat seeding, post harvest preparation, egg collecting, herb growing, harvesting, and drying. 

Located on 1,500 acres of land in the Mid-Hudson Region, less than two hours from New York City, The Center for Discovery has become a magnet institution where individuals from around the region and world travel to receive highly advanced care and access to groundbreaking research and treatment for a myriad of complex conditions. The Center has a long history of innovation in curriculum development, program implementation, and assistive technology, leading to significant breakthroughs and life-changing opportunities.

Each year, The Center serves 1,200 children and adults from across New York State and beyond. Growing from 25 employees in 1980 to over 1,700 employees in 2019, The Center is the largest private sector employer in Sullivan County, New York. Over the last seven years, The Center for Discovery® has generated $1.075 billion of economic impact for the State of New York.
