Summer Sun Brings Abundance
Summer is here! That means a couple of important things to us - Peak growing season for prairie grasses and cattle. Cattle love this time of year because their absolute favorite foods are available in abundance all around them. With each paddock rotation, they enjoy the best grazing with thriving native prairie grasses on our multigenerational family farms. Summer rains and sunshine bring excellent growing conditions for these grasses, with water seeping deep into the earth, nurturing the microorganisms and plant roots underground. These grasses capture atmospheric carbon and pull it into the soil at a rate comparable to forested areas. Our pastures are like big carbon vacuum cleaners taking carbon from the atmosphere and drawing it deep into the ground where microbes use their incredible talents to turn it into energy for plants. In turn, plants repeat the process, and the cycle repeats over and over again. While you may only notice cows in a pasture at first glance, there is much more at work. From the cows, insects, birds, and plant varieties, nature works together to create a thriving ecosystem as it has for millenniums. By returning to our roots and letting nature lead the way, we heal soil quality with each grazing rotation while delivering the finest quality grass-fed meats to your door with transparency as if you raised the animals yourself. Take a walk through our pastures with Founder John Wood.
Grilling Tips | Grass-fed Steaks
A grass-fed diet is natural for cows, lamb, and bison, and creates a different chemical composition in the meat than grain-fed animals. For this reason, preparing grass-fed steaks is slightly different than grain-fed. In this article, learn how your grill distributes heat, where the hot spots are, and how to sear the meats to lock in juices and flavor. Browse the US Wellness Blog for various grass-fed steak recipes!

“I've been a customer for years! I have never been dissatisfied with my meat orders or the customer service at Us Wellness Meats. Love this company. Our favorite has been the ribeye steaks and burger. We usually buy the ribeye roast and cut our own steaks, but you can never go wrong their pre-cut steaks. I love that I don't have to buy a whole quarter...we get exactly what we want and need."

Know Your Farmer | Trust the Source
Know your food, know your farmer is something we talk a lot about here at US Wellness Meats. We hope this saying inspires people to take a minute to ponder where their food is sourced. For vegetables, is it sourced from farms free of pesticides, herbicides, and non-Gmo? What about protein - have these animals been raised without antibiotics or added growth hormones? These are questions we all deserve to know when deciding how to fuel our bodies. Are we helping nourish our bodies with every bite or holding them back from achieving our best selves?
Trusting a source is a big leap of faith. We know this, and it is the reason we do our very best to be transparent about our farming and processing practices from start to finish. We hope to allow a window into our everyday lives on the farm and in the warehouse through our social media channels, blog, and email newsletter. Take a virtual walk through our pastures where we follow regenerative agricultural practices and a look at our state-of-the-art meat cutting room where we carefully package products for your families.
From the Newswire | The War on Meat
"Billionaire Bill Gates owns more American farmland than any other person on Earth. As food prices continue to soar nationwide and experts are sounding the alarm over a looming food shortage, Gates is using his growing influence in the industry to urge Americans to embrace a new form of sustenance: synthetic meat. In this Sunday episode of Morning Wire, we look at the role Bill Gates is playing in the push to abandon meat."

Shout Out | G.O.A.T Burger
It's hard not to love a good burger! This burger by @honeyitsalyssa may be one of the best. Stacked with USWM grass-fed ground beef, goat cheese, organic pickles, egg, and gluten-free bread, makes for one delicious meal. A reason burgers are so popular is the versatility of toppings. There is something for everyone! Swap out one variety of cheese for another, switch up your condiments, or ditch the bun altogether. Your burger, your way.
