lion _ lamb
Dear Atlanta, 

"In like a lion, out like a lamb," this early 19th century proverb was an attempt to predict the weather.  And not much has changed in over a century.  Trying to predict the weather a month in advance is still an iffy proposition.  We do know that March in Missouri brings both good and bad weather.  If your weather is more like a lamb we've got plain beef franks, and Lamb Denver Ribs on sale for the early season griller.  
 
And if the lion is lurking in your weather we've got whole rabbits, and beef gelatin on sale which are great for soups, stews or other inside delicacies.  Not sure how to prepare rabbit, visit our pinterest page for some tasty recipes or try this Sweet Apple Rabbit Stew.  

Easter is a week away.  To help with your menu planning we have some traditional Easter favorites in stock and ready to ship:
To ensure your Easter order arrives on time, be sure to have your order placed by 10:00 am CST on Wednesday, March 23.
 
Yes it's true the carnivores here at US Wellness Meats, do in fact enjoy vegetables as well, especially the garden grown variety.  That's why we're excited to partner with our friends at Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds for this giveaway where not just one, but two lucky winners will take home all you need to grow, gather, and graze your way through the spring season!

If it seems like you are reading and hearing more and more about good fats being good for you, it is because the most recent science is telling us that it is true!  Thirty years of well-intentioned but false information will take more than one article to change hearts about this issue.  You will be fascinated by Dr. Mercola's article this week that tells us straight up- SATURATED FATS ARE GOOD FOR YOU!

You know the drill. Watch or read the health media and you will be regularly told to avoid saturated fats because they raise your LDL cholesterol, which will ultimately clog your arteries and lead to heart disease. The problem with this recommendation is that it is only based on a theory, and worse yet that theory has never been proven. In fact, the recent studies that carefully examine saturated fat disprove this.

Interestingly, a new American Heart Association (AHA) study claims eating the "right" fats could save 1 million lives per year.
Customer Feedback
South Carolina Free Range Chickens

"DELICIOUS!"   

"I just lunched on leftover chicken from last night.  I LOVE this chicken.  This soy free chicken has minimal fat, so I slathered it with butter to bake it, and it's just the best.  The day before baking it I used liberal amounts of garlic salt, thyme and rosemary inside and outside, put it in a gallon bag in the fridge to set 24 hrs. The next day I set it out on the counter for a couple of hours to warm up a bit, put it in the oven at 325 'til done, and it's a winner !!!!"

"I love the flavor of rotisserie style chicken from the store, but couldn't find organic or free range rotisserie chicken.  I didn't like the idea of using non-organic chickens or bones to make broth, so I wanted to find a way to duplicate the flavors of rotisserie chicken at home.

Now, I pre-make this on the weekend and keep the meat for recipes and the bones for broth for the week. Give it a try! It is fast, easy and delicious! The secret is in the spices, which create a similar flavor to store-bought rotisserie chicken. I love to stretch this recipe and I'll often cook two chickens at once, put the bones in the slow cooker to make broth, make a batch of chicken salad for later in the week and use the remaining leftovers for a casserole or soup."

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.
