Dear John,
Superfood For Athletes
Athletes put their bodies through rigorous training to prepare for competition. That stress improves the ability to compete, but it also requires a balanced plan for healing.

Sustainably raised, grass-fed and free range meats have nutrients that active bodies crave for their healing properties. USWM has had the opportunity to work with a multitude of athletes over the years. We're proud of the success our athletic friends have enjoyed. 

Bone broth is making it's way into the mainstream. Athletes have known for some time that broth is a powerful superfood. These healing, nutrient dense foods are good for the rest of us too. USWM has a selection of pre-made broths and stocks along with bones for making your own. Check out our recipe section for ideas.

Founder's Note: 
On January 1st a majority of beef prices will rise 10 to 20 cents per pound to offset a sharp increase handed down by our cattle harvesting facility in November 2017. Unfortunately, we have no control over pricing at the harvesting facility. This is their first increase in ten years, and it was larger than we expected. Pork, lamb, seafood and poultry will have scattered changes effecting less than 10% of their combined SKU's. Fed Ex costs also tick up on January 1st. We find price changes painful, 
and do our best to hold the line on costs. This is our first major price change since March 2015. We are most appreciative of your consideration and loyalty.
Winter Wishes,
John & Staff on behalf of the farm families of US Wellness Meats

"To Die For!"
"Ordered one to try out and LOVED it. Great flavor and also Whole30 compliant which is great as we are on day 16 of the 30 day plan. Fantastic protein snack for both Whole30 and Paleo. Really stabilizes blood sugars. Just ordered 5 more logs!"

Recipe Corner
So many people are intimidated by making bone broth, which is sad because it's incredibly beneficial for our immunity, gut lining, and bones and muscles. I believe that it's better to strip a recipe down of its more time-consuming steps rather than complicate it and turn people off from making it in the first place.

Thanks to Featured Chef, Stacey Hutson, for making this bone broth recipe so easy to follow. Visit Stacey's health & wellness blog, Healthy Stacey for more recipes, tips, and healthy advice. 
Farm Photos 

NE Missouri was visited by a Christmas Eve snow that left a winter wonderland in its wake. These cattle are still consuming stockpiled grasses in rest for the past 70 days. Cattle are very adept at foraging in light fluffy snow. 

Fall born calves are enjoying their first taste of snow. This group is waiting for a gate to open into the next paddock of forage. These animals play an important role in recycling above ground biomass into stored soil carbon.     

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!
