USWM Shout Out ~ Grass-fed Beef Tri-Tip From @yabbadabbydo 


Dear Atlanta,

Planning For Back To School
Families all over the country are in the process of back-to-school preparations. Here's some back to school basics from The Paleo Mom to consider. Yes, BTS is fast approaching for millions of young people. Whether you're planning for college, high school, or elementary aged students, US Wellness Meats has a variety of healthy snacks to consider. Our snacks are minimally processed and loaded with nutrients. More good news: these sustainably raised snack foods are NOT loaded with sugar or sugar substitutes! Bonus note: studies on healthy fats have shown a link to improved brain function, where too much sugar is likely to impair concentration.

Here's some tasty ideas: Original and Jalapeno Paleo Choice Meat Stiks (Shelf Stable), Pork Rinds, Jerky, Trail Mix and Organic Raw & Sprouted Nuts, Paleo Treats, and more!

We also have some delicious alternative ideas for heat & serve, easy school lunches: Slow Roasted Shredded Beef, Sugar-Free Smoked Sliced Beef Brisket, Hickory Smoked Beef Back Ribs, Sugar-Free Franks (this is not your ordinary hotdog), and BBQ Pulled Pork just to name a few.

The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a division of the World Health Organization (WHO), classifies processed meat as a Group 1 carcinogen (World Health Organization, 2015a).  This places processed meat in the same category as tobacco.  Although unproven, the IARC (and the general public) speculates that the nitrates and nitrites in processed meat are the cancer-causing agents.  Is there reason to be concerned? ...

Customer Feedback
On sale this week!

"We have gone through at least 6 bags of these shrimp in recent months and they have been very good...highly recommend them! They are big enough where they don't fall through the openings on our grill or smoker. Also have cooked them with olive oil and veggies, boiled with pickling spice or cooked in butter and garlic - all came out great!"

Farm Photos 

These cattle are on a modern day cattle drive to a new paddock. The lead animal has been on the farm for two years and leads the group daily. The legendary cattle drives in the 1800's always had a lead animal.

The cattle on the left were moved to the picture above. This field was seeded to mixed forages in April, and in spite of dry summer, the forage is a tall as the cattle.  Contentment is the order of the day!





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 $9.50 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!
