Health News

There is a caveat to the push for increased Vitamin D: Don't forget magnesium.
A review published in The Journal of the American Osteopathic Association found Vitamin D can't be metabolized without sufficient magnesium levels. This means that Vitamin D remains stored and inactive for as many as 50 percent of Americans...

Customer Feedback

"This picture does not do it justice. It is a deeper organ meat color and the flavor is over the top. It is my teenage son's new favorite, on its own or with spicy brown mustard. I stopped buying liverwurst as an adult because honestly the quality in the grocery store is horrible. This beef liverwurst reminds me of the same my family got when I was kid in the 70's. Excellent and would recommend!"

Farm Photos 

April brings the cattle egrets back to South Alabama. Note the half dozen white birds standing on the ground in the middle of this picture. They bond with the cattle and consume insects that pester the cattle.  

The Midwest is still under the grip of Old Man Winter with a record snow amount and cold temperature reading on April 1st at our Missouri office. It's a totally different story on the Gulf Coast for these happy cattle.  

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!
