Happy St. Patrick's Day Atlanta,  

The water color painting you see was sent to us this week from one of our customers, Mako.  In her email she says, "I just finished painting this for the organic raw milk farm in Fresno, CA where I get my raw milk and cream. I wanted to share it with you since you have the same kind of happy cows where my meat is coming from."  If you would like to see more of Mako's gorgeous artwork visit her website Studio Mako
 
Happy cows ~ happy customers.  This simple statement captures the belief that started US Wellness Meats.  If we responsibly care for the land, and responsibly care for the animals, we will produce meat that is great for our bodies.  We look for this simple but uncommon recipe in all the farms and producers that supply the products we carry in our store.  If you hold similar beliefs about your food, we hope you will consider trusting us with your food purchases and then share USWM with others who could benefit from our products.  
 
Easter is right around the corner, and our Whole Leg of Lamb is on sale this week.  Also on sale are our Pre-Cooked BBQ Short Ribs and Thai Center Cut Sirloin Butt Steak if you need something easy on hand for house guests.  Beef Tri-Tip Steak and Duck Stock round out our sale items.  
 
If you don't need that Whole Leg of Lamb for your Easter dinner, take a look at all of our Lamb Products which restocked earlier this week for additional choices.  Is the weather warming up in your neck of the woods, our Pork Bratwursts which are great on the grill restocked and are back in 1.25lb packages of 5 links per package.

Once again Scott Mendelson gives us some thoughtful insight into his best practices for fat burning tips for the whole family.  Scott's advice on how to maximize diet and exercise is cutting edge.

This week's Recipe Corner is a double feature so you won't want to miss it!  Chef Marie shares two recipes that will make you think you are a guest at her secluded Blue Osa Retreat and Spa in Costa Rica.  "Knowing how to eat is the beginning of knowing how to live," says Chef Marie.

If you want to learn more about where your food comes from and how it can be produced in a sustainable manner that is good for you, the land, and the animals come see us at the Grassfed Exchange 2016 Conference - Regenerating Lives One Farm at a Time.

Mid-Week Restocks
Athlete's Corner - Scott Mendelson Q&A

Scott~  I put the entire family on a Paleo type diet which worked well to improve our energy levels and to promote fat burning initially. Our food choices were bad from June all the way through the end of the year.  Around the middle of February my husband stopped losing body fat and so did my adult son...  ~Sharon   

Sharon~ We need to cleanse your fat cells, drive fat burning signals and optimize insulin sensitivity to get fat burning going.  One of the many reasons the paleo system worked well for at least 6 weeks was the removal of refined foods which allowed the fat cells to get rid of garbage stored in the cells so that fat burning could become a priority.  Let's get to work with a weight training, interval sprint and KISS Fat Loss Nutrition plan strategy to help you reach your goals.

Purchasing Information
Order Minimums
  • All orders must weigh at least 7 pounds in order to ship, to ensure everything stays frozen during transit.
  • $75 minimum purchase requirement, since we have built the cost of shipping into the price of each product.
  • 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.   
Weight Discount
  • Receive a $25 discount for every 40 pounds you order. This offer excludes items that ship separate such as the South Carolina Chicken, produce and fresh bundles.
  • This is our way of saying thank-you for purchasing in bulk!
  • This can be any combination of products totaling 40 pounds and does not have to be specific to any category.  Each 40 pound interval will yield the discount - for example, order 80 pounds and we'll take $50 off!
