To All The Thinkers: Thank You!

In Uncategorized on February 28, 2009 at 5:38 pm

There were a lot of thinkers out there today, as I sent my mother-in-law and husband to Turners Falls High School to sell some of our farm products at the “Food For Thought” Farmer’s Market.
There must be many thinkers out there, because we sold out of almost everything that I sent with them to sell today. My thinking was that it is better to bring along a representative sample of the meats that we have for sale, than to bring everything; it is better for the meat to be handled less rather than more, and it is very difficult to being hundreds of pounds of meat from various species with you!

So, rest assured… if you found that we were “out” of Belted Galloway Burgers or Gloucestershire Old Spots Sausage at the Farmer’s Market — let me assure you that there is more, and (for example) we have more than a hundred pounds of burger left in our large freezer at home.

So, all you have to do is puck up the phone and call — if you are local, we will deliver. If you are farther away, we can make arrangements.

And Thank You, again, for patronizing your local farms at the farmers Market today. It really means a great deal to all of us.

Wells Tavern Farm Belted Galloway Grassfed Beef. No hormones, no antibiotics, no steroids, no herbicides, no pesticides. Just fresh air, mineral rich water and local hay and grass pasture.  USDA inspected, safe handling instructions printed on the vacuum packed package, frozen for your convenience. Perfect for last-minute dinner guests!

Heritage. Pastured. Local.

Benefits:  Local, Flavorful, Good for You Beef.          

Beef from animals raised entirely on their natural diet of grass has much less fat, which is good for our hearts and our waistlines. It’s also better for the environment than crowding cattle onto feedlots, which causes serious problems with air and water quality.  A growing body of research indicates that pasture-raised meat, eggs, and dairy products are better for consumers’ health than conventionally-raised, grain-fed foods. In addition to being lower in calories and total fat, pasture-raised foods have higher levels of vitamins, and a healthier balance of omega-3 and omega-6 fats than conventional meat and dairy products.
