Athlete's Corner - Scott Mendelson Q&A

I tried a higher fat diet a while ago and did not see any success after a couple weeks. Then I returned to what I had been doing before which was not bad in any way, but piled on a lot of body fat. I am afraid to go with a higher dietary consumption plan even though I hear great things about the approach.

Customer Feedback
"A New Favorite!"
"I was a little hesitant when I first looked into the liverwurst based on reviews of the strong flavor. I ordered two 1 lb rolls to try. They were shipped very quickly and I placed one in the fridge to thaw. The next day I sliced off a couple of pieces to try for lunch. Much to my surprise, for my taste, they were not strong at all and had a wonderful flavor and texture. Unfortunately the first roll didn't last 2 days as I found a reason to have it often. I just ordered four more rolls!  
Great quality and superb flavor, I will always have this on hand as part of my Paleo lifestyle!"

Here's a hearty number for a winter evening. The Domestic Man, Russ Crandall has put together a deliciously filling dish. The breading Russ uses for the fried chicken is gluten free. As usual, he also includes a bit of history and cultural information to go along with the recipe. We hope you enjoy this Fried Chicken Carolina Shrimp Bog!

Thanks to our friend Russ Crandall for this hearty cultural treat! Find more recipes and great paleo cookbooks at The Domestic Man.
Farm Photos  
The I-10 corridor from East Texas to northern Florida is a vastly under utilized winter grazing asset in the America. While the snow flies in the upper Midwest, cattle grazing south of I-10 rarely see more than a couple of night time lows below 25

Winter grass will continue to get stronger after December 21st with extra minutes of sunlight daily.  This group of cattle will enjoy the micro climate created by Mobile Bay and the Gulf of Mexico during the first 5 months of 2018.  Green grass in January is a wonderful concept.

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.
