Happy Thanksgiving!  Shrimp Sale, Food Safety Update, Free Range Turkey Photos

November 21, 2010
Monticello, Missouri

Dear John,
Happy Thanksgiving!
We have had a busy week here at US Wellness Meats.  We spent an exciting weekend at the Weston A. Price Conference and enjoyed meeting many current customers as well as many new customers.  Thanks to all who stopped by our booth!

Are you ready for Thanksgiving?  It will be here in only four short days!  In case you haven't ordered your Thanksgiving turkey yet, it's not too late.  We still have an assortment of sizes available.  Please have all turkey orders in by 8:00 am CST on Monday, November 22 to ensure delivery and time to thaw before Thanksgiving.  For tips and tricks to carving a beautiful Thanksgiving bird, visit our Turkey Blog Page.

We will have a short shipping schedule due to the holiday this week.  We will not be able to ship on Wednesday, since FedEx will not deliver on Thanksgiving.  The deadline for ordering and shipment this week is 10:00 am CST Tuesday, November 23.  However, our packing crew has been working overtime to keep up with increased holiday orders, so we would appreciate orders being placed as early as possible to ensure delivery before Thanksgiving. 

With Thanksgiving this week, it means Christmas will be here before we know it.  Make gift giving easy this year by sending our Gourmet Gift Pack to relatives, employees, or friends.  This premium gift box contains an assortment of burger, brisket, steaks, and BBQ beef that is sure to please any crowd!  For more gift giving ideas, visit our Gift Buying Guide blog page.

SupportOurTroopsUS Wellness was proud to be able to participate in a Soldiers Angels event in Fort Campbell, KY this past week to help assemble hundreds of gift packages for soldiers currently serving overseas.  We were happy to be able to provide the meal, as well as help send care packages.  These were all shipped to a US military unit serving in Afghanistan.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of our servicemen and women currently serving overseas during the holiday season. 

Help us protect our small farmers and producers!  The cloture vote on S.510, the FDA Food Safety Modernization Act, was passed on Wednesday, which means that there may now be a time limit placed on consideration of the bill.  So now is the time to contact your elected officials and voice your opinion!  S.510 would impose harsh regulations and unnecessary rules upon small farmers and producers, thus making it harder for those producers to afford to stay in business.  Please sign the petition to help us keep the right to choose where our food comes from. 

We would like to wish a Happy Thanksgiving to all of our loyal readers.  We are truly grateful for your support and patronage over the last ten years, without you we would have never been able to make the great journey we are on.  In appreciation, please watch for a special Black Friday Secret Sale email coming out this week with details for a one-day sale this Friday, November 26.

US Wellness Trivia Contest! 
We will randomly draw 30 winners who email the correct answer on Sunday, November 21.  Promo codes will be emailed on Monday morning and will be active for 30 days. 

This week's question: "Near what famous rock did the Pilgrims land?"  Please email your answers to blog@grasslandbeef.com.

Thanks to all who have been participating in our Trivia Contests! In the last news alert, we asked: What is the longest river in the US?  The answer was: the Missouri River.

Thankful Regards,

John, Lee Ann, Megan, Tressa, and Jennifer, on behalf of the farm families of U.S. Wellness Meats

Dear Dr. Serrano,

I have a family memeber who was recently diagnosed with Psariatic Arthritis.  She is quite concerned - which would be an understatement.  They are recommending the drug Humera.  Aside from reading the side effects, I am unfamiliar with it and thought I would ask your opinion and if you could point us in any direction.  She wants information before starting this drug due to all the side effects and wanted to know of any other protocols.

Thanks again for you time.

Dear Marc,

I would not use that medication, but I don't know how much pain the person is in or what kind of symptoms the person is having.  So, my recommendation for that person is to stop wheat, dairy, eggs, and peanuts for at least three weeks and then reintroduce one at a time and find out which one makes it worse.

I would also add a good multivitamin, like Multifood IV from Innate by calling (800) 634-6342 and use code SER030; and Alpha Omega-3. I hope your family member starts feeling better.

Thank You and Good Luck,

Dr. Serrano

recipeFeatured Recipe
Herbed Turkey
Ingredients: Herbed Turkey
  • 1 (18 lb.) whole turkey
  • 2 lemons, quartered
  • 1 sprig rosemary
  • 3-4 basil leaves
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. garlic, minced
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh basil, finely chopped
  1. Preheat roaster to 325 degrees F.

  2. Mix the olive oil, rosemary, basil, garlic, salt and pepper
    together and allow the oil to absorb the flavors of the herbs, garlic and seasoning for about an hour.

  3. Rinse the turkey and pat dry. Remove any large fat deposits. Loosen as much skin as possible from the meat using your fingers. A spoon may also be helpful in loosening the skin. Be careful not to tear the skin. Spread the herb mixture under the skin. Rub the remaining mixture over the outside of the turkey.

  4. Stuff the turkey with cut lemons and the remaining rosemary and basil.

  5. Place turkey on the rack in the roasting pan. Add about 1 cup water to the bottom of the pan. Roast for about 4 hours until the internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F at the thickest part of the thigh near the bone.

  6. When done, remove turkey, cover, and allow to rest for 10 minutes before cutting.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Beef Stir FryUS Wellness,

I was unprepared for dinner last night, so I threw together a beef stir fry using your beef stew meat.  It was still frozen when I put it in the pan.  I was so sure that it was going to be tough as nails by the time it was done that I even included a steak knife with the table settings.

To my surprise, it was incredibly tender.  My 2 year old even kept asking for "more meat".  You know it's tender if a toddler can easily chew it!
