Dear John,
Thank You!  We would like to thank all of our loyal readers and dedicated customers for helping us celebrate our 10-Year Anniversary during the month of September.  We would never have made it this far without you, and look forward to another successful 10 years! 

For our last anniversay give-a-way, one lucky blog reader won our top ten best selling products.  This delicous package included best sellers such as ground beef, tenderloin filets, snack sticks and bacon.  Visit the blog page to read all the unique comments and learn what everybody else's favorite products are!  Congratulations to blog reader Jan, who is the lucky recipient.

Have you registered for the Weston A. Price Conference yet?  It will be here before we know it!  US Wellness is a proud sponsor at the conference every year, and this year it is being held November 12-15 at the Valley Forge Convention center in King of Prussia, PA.  This conference brings in all the experts on nutrient-dense, natural foods.  They have an impressive list of speakers, and every meal is carefully planned with only the best ingredients.  For more information, visit the conference home page.  Hotel rooms are filling up fast!  To get signed up today, visit the registration page.

We are continuing to follow SB 510 - the Food Safety Modernization Act.  The Senate has still not voted on this bill, and they are now in recess, which means that many of our Senators are back in their home districts.  Now is a great time to meet with them and let them know we want to keep our right to choose where our food comes from and that we don't want any more restrictions on small scale farms and local farmers.  You can find your Senator's contact information here.

Our friends at Mark's Daily Apple are in the heat of battle trying to win a "whole cow", donated by us!  Visit their website for some primal picnic inspiration, and to see all the entries!

We are still celebrating National Seafood Month!  Our popular Wild Caught Raw Shrimp are on sale this week - so now is a great time to stock up!  Be sure and visit our October recipe page for tasty seafood recipes and photos.  If you are looking for a new seafood product to try, this week our favorite is Albacore Tuna.  Wild-caught tuna is packed full of omega-3's and has excellent amounts of Vitamin D, besides that it is just plain good!  Our wild-caught tuna makes the best tuna sandwiches, visit our blog for a delicious tuna sandwich recipe.  Also, see our recipe section below for a "peachy" halibut recipe.

US Wellness Trivia Contest! 
Trivia Update!  Instead of limiting the 15% promo code to the first 30 responders, we will randomly draw 30 winners who email the correct answer on Sunday, October 10.  Promo codes will be emailed on Monday morning and will be active for 30 days. 

This week's question: "As of 2010, how many glaciers remain in Montana's Glacier National Park?"  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 Olympic medalist and American record holder is a US Wellness athlete and 'expert'?  The answer was: Marathoner Deena Kastor.

Best October Regards,

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

EMAIL QUESTIONS TO: eathealthy@grasslandbeef.com


Dr. Serrano,

I work out 4-6 times a week mostly cross training and resistance, but I'm an ectomorph so it's difficult for me to keep weight on or build muscle.  Can you recommend some sort of muscle building protein shake or nutritional supplement that would help me gain and retain muscle mass?


Dear Stacey,

If you want to gain muscle weight but do mostly crosstraining it is going to be awful hard unless you eat like a horse.  This takes lots of foods and workouts with resistance exercise at least three times per week.  Try to cut your crosstraining to only once per week.  If you want to gain muscle weight and want to try shakes, I recommend Muscle Synthesis Lemon or Mixed Berry. 

This will allow you to gain muscle weight without the fat and also help you without affecting your gastrointestinal system.  You can take it before and after workouts.

Good Luck,

Dr. Serrano

What Our Customers Are Saying

From one of our trivia contest winners:
Ribeye Steak
What a wonderful surprise! Thank you so much for the opportunity to "splurge" a bit. We have been customers for several years. We buy as much as we can from local farmers at the Urbana Farmers Market in Urbana, Illinois. Still, no one has the quality and consistency of ribeyes that you do. We also trust the quality of your ground beef and organ meats and butter - I could go on!

The ribeyes have been our Friday night treat for several years. I travel during the week and Friday nights are special. Whoever gets home first starts our standard meal: ceasar salad, baked garlic, whole wheat baguette, potatoes and, ta-da, we split a ribeye and enjoy it all with a nice bottle of wine - EVERY Friday. We think there is nowhere else we'd rather be and nothing else we'd rather be having for dinner.

Thanks so much for making these dinners supreme! And thanks for the gift discount. We do appreciate that!
