Home Delivery Improvements: We expect to be constantly improving/tweaking our home delivery service. This week  2 big improvements were made. We have expanded the geographic area and lowered the delivery fees.
  • Lower Delivery Fees:We were able to bring the pricing structure down by one level. New Pricing is outlined below.
Order TotalDelivery Fee
  • Expanded Delivery Area:  We have expanded the delivery zone to cover quite a bit more area. New areas that are now covered include: North to Hwy 20 including parts of Canton, East to cover stone mtn., Rome and Cartersville.  Check the map below, or check your exact location by entering your address online. 

How Home Delivery Works:  If you haven't tried the home delivery option yet, this is how it works. You can now have our Farm Fresh harvest of meat, milk, eggs, honey, cultured products, and organic veggies delivered right to your front door. Forget loading the kids up and fighting traffic to make it to the delivery location. Let us pack your order in a cooler and deliver it to your door.

  • Change your account profile to Home Delivery: You will have the option to select "pick-up" or "home delivery" when you create an account. If you have an existing account, from the "My Account" tab at the top of the screen, Select home delivery and put in the address to your home or office. If your address is within the delivery zones outlined above, we will delivery your order to you directly. Watch the video below to see how to change your profile to home delivery. 

  • Packaging: Your order will be packed in a styrofoam cooler box with cold packs. We will drop off your order during the day and it will stay cool until you get home to put it all away.  There will be a deposit charged ($7) for the cooler and cold packs, but that deposit will be returned when you leave the empty cooler & packs for us to pick-up when we return with your next order. 
  • Fees: As much as we would like to deliver everyone's order for free, there will be a delivery fee for the home delivery option. We have created a tiered delivery fee so that larger orders have a smaller fee. (see chart above)
  • Order deadline for all deliveries is Noon, the day before delivery is made.
  • Changes to current schedule:  
    • Duluth drop-off will be moved to a Thursday delivery to coincide with the home delivery route in that area. 
    • Kennesaw (Dr Jockers) Drop-off location will be moved to Friday to coincide with home delivery in that area. 
    • If you are happy using the Mobile Market locations or the drop-off delivery options, those will still be available to you. 

Egg Sale!!   Spring eggs are excellent quality, and are still at an excellent price.  We decided to keep this egg sale going for a while. As long as the girls are giving us a bounty of eggs, we intend to share the bountiful harvest with you. Right now the laying hens are in a good mood, so enjoy those eggs.  
Vegetable Shares are now available. Getting signed up for your weekly or biweekly share is as simple as placing a share in your basket. This year there is no prepayment requirement for the season.

On the Farm

Unexpected Surprises:
Of course I didn't get a picture of me chasing cows, so i'll leave this picture of a green bean patch here for you to enjoy. 

On the Farm the idea of unexpected surprises is not a good one.  We like for farm operations to be predictable and routine, almost mundane. Dairy cows are creatures of habit, and possible through osmosis, Dairy Farmers are much the same. I mean, we milk cows at 4a.m. and 4p.m. every single day, regardless of holidays, birthdays, or the weather, and have since 1946. You can probably see why someone with a bias toward predictability and dedication would flourish in this world. 
So now picture this. Im sitting in my office writing this email like I do every Monday Morning (notice the routine). Not many employees are here because it's early, and there's not a slammed schedule for today (slammed schedule starts tomorrow). So It's me... alone... when I get this call. You have 4 cows in the road headed away from the farm, toward the highway.  So I left the email, hopefully to auto-save itself while I tend to this unexpected surprise. I dart out, down the drive, and toward the direction of the rogue bovines. All the while, trying to reach by phone any help that might be available, but to no avail. I spotted the creatures, broadside in the road from one white line to the other. They had not reached the highway, but they were in a curve. I quickly drove past them and set up the truck beyond the curve with flashers on as to alert oncoming traffic. I turned the beasts around, and headed them back home. Because I was still alone, I couldn't direct them as precisely as I normally would. So, we visited all the neighbors and the creek before we finally made it back to the appropriate pasture. I'm happy to report that all parties involved are back home safe and sound. I said we didn't like unexpected surprises, not that we didn't have them.  
UPDATE:   Moral of the story: electric fences do not work well when turned off : (  This weekend someone, turned the fence off to tend to the pasture raised broiler chickens that are in the same pasture, and forgot to turn the fence back on. #ourfault #notthecowsfault

Dr. Mercola
If you've been conditioned from childhood to eat "chicken soup" to tame a cold or soothe a sore throat, you may be surprised to learn that the bone broth rivals the chicken and the vegetables in providing the nutrients your body needs to fight infection.

Due to its medicinal properties, bone broth is one of the foods I highly recommend, and personally use, to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Customer Feedback
Pork Baby Back Ribs
(On sale this week!)
"Larger and meatier than most baby back ribs..."

"I ordered two of these for two of us for one meal, understanding that of 1.65 lbs, much of it would be bones. What I received weighed a bit more than listed online on my kitchen scale.

This is a high price and the most I've ever paid for baby back ribs, but they were substantially larger than those I've had before with much more meat on each rib by a lot. We had leftovers for the next day.

I cooked them low and slow on indirect heat with a smoker box in my Weber gas grill for a couple of hours; they were very delicious with only a rub, no sauce.  I don't like ribs cooked down to mush and falling off the bone, just really tender and these were worth the splurge to me.  I'm back for more today!"

Recipe Corner  
This Smoked Salmon Dip combines luxury with ease. Gluten-free and Paleo-friendly, it's made with a base of cashew cream, a hint of lemon, and fresh dill. Serve it with crudités (sliced or whole veggies) and you've got one amazing appetizer!

For those of you who love the taste of smoked salmon and cashews, you're in for a real treat! This creamy, dairy-free dip is light and satiating. Better yet, it requires very little hands-on time, and no cooking at all.

Many thanks to Felicia Lim of PaleoHacks who also authors for the food blog Dish by Dish, where personal stories intertwine with simple, healthy recipes. She was born in Singapore but later moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina, where she is currently based.  
Farm Photos

Streaming into a new paddock is the highlight of the day for US Wellness cattle graziers.  This block of pasture has been in rest for past 30 days and is rich in stored energy and forage variety.

Sweet clover and white clover are the predominant forage species in this paddock with summer annual grasses, and brassicas hidden in the canopy. These cattle are all heads down and enjoying every bite of their pasture salad.

  • You will never be charged extra for shipping.
  • There is a $7.50 handling fee upon checkout.
  • The South Carolina Chicken Bundles, BBQ Sauce, produce and cookbooks ship from separate locations, so they are not included in the 7 lb weight minimum.  The shopping cart will keep track and remind you if your order is under the 7 lb limit.
