Dr. Mercola
In our Health article this week, Dr. Mercola shares some dietary evidence that quality of food appears to be more important than the quantity of macronutrients. This information makes it that much more critical to know where your food comes from.
Recipe Corner 
See the Recipe Corner this week for a simple, yet delicious grilling recipe from George Bryant. Let us know what you think. Remember, our grass-fed beef doesn't take as long on the grill as the store bought grain-fed varieties. Fortunately, our Beef Tenderloin Kabobs are on sale!

Dr. Mercola
  • Scientists now believe obesity and metabolic disease don't occur because of the number of carbohydrates we eat, but the types
  • Some think the key to weight control is willpower, but research suggests a hormone called leptin is the culprit; in fact, it's been called the "leading driver of fat gain in humans"
  • One study shows that foods with high carb content promote the development of inflammatory microbiota, which leads, progressively, to leptin resistance, metabolic syndrome and obesity
  • Carbs are a large part of the energy intake for present-day hunter-gatherers in remote parts of the world, but their fasting insulin and blood glucose levels are lower than the healthiest individuals in Western populations

Customer Feedback
On Sale this week!
"Very, very good sausage. I buy it every time I order
~Albert G. of Las Vegas, NM    

"Two yums up! Turns out you really don't need to put sugar (or gluten, or random chemical spices) into your sausage. This breakfast sausage is delicious. The spices are balanced, and it's not over-salted. We got it for the Whole30, but will be continuing to order it as long as they make it!"
~Sheri K. of Milton, MA

  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!
