Happy Labor Day!
Happy September!      

We hope you are enjoying your Labor Day weekend.  September is one of our favorite month's here at US Wellness Meats. Sixteen years ago this month we had our start.  This picture of John was from our first photo shoot on the farm.  It is pretty faint in the picture but there is a rainbow in the upper corner of the photo.  At the time we hoped the rainbow was a harbinger of good things to come and the last 16 years have been a great success thanks to you.

If you have ever tried one of our recipes, recommended us to friends, enjoyed a meal with our meats, left a product review, liked a picture, commented on a post, shared your feedback, or followed us on social media, then you have contributed to our success.

Thank you for your loyal patronage.  As a sign of our gratitude there will be additional giveaways and contests throughout the month.  So keep an eye on our newsletter and social media feeds for your opportunity to win.  If you are not following us, click on our social media buttons below so you don't miss out.

Dietary fiber is at the heart of what archeologists have found at digs from the Paleolithic era. Fiber promotes better health by improving the health of your gut microbiome, or the 100 trillion or so bacteria that live in your intestinal tract and help regulate your immune system. In addition to improved digestion, getting adequate amounts of fiber in your diet has many benefits to your overall health.  

Customer Feedback
Free Range Chicken Leg Quarters (on sale this week!) 

"What Free Range Chicken Should Be... I got 7 large whole
legs in my order. These taste excellent, with none of that funky smell you get from conventional chicken. And the texture is just what FREE RANGE chicken should be: more body and chew to the meat, not soft and mushy. Conventional chicken meat is soft because the chickens do not get to use their muscles, thus the meat is soft. Just as with us, sickly chickens have soft meat. Love the taste, size, and texture of these, will order again!"

"Leg Quarter Heaven... These leg quarters were the meat of the Gods.  Baked low temperature for 2 hours covered in Rosemary. We got 5 quarters which was enough for two meals."

Farm Photos

The benefits of 80 plus inches of rain per year are very noticeable and cattle have adapted well to heat and humidity of the Gulf Coast.

What a change only 8 inches of rain per year makes in the landscape of Eastern Montana. However, cattle have adapted to much drier air and higher altitude.  Solar energy super packs energy in the native range shown here in August.  Cattle require more acres per animal but it is still amazing how they convert much lower intake into great tasting steaks.  Increasing grass productivity in the Great Plains is the easiest fix to harvest carbon from the atmosphere.
 
  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!
