GIVEAWAY: Grass-fed Sausage Sampler

Sausage is popular with my kids. To be honest, it’s one of my favorites as well. When I first made the switch to eating grass-fed beef and pastured pork, I was saddened to have so few sources of quality sausage. I could buy nitrate-free smoked pork sausage from the same local meat processor that butchered my cow every year, but that was about it.

Where was the Italian sausage? The liverwurst? Polish kielbasa? Salami? Heck, even hot dogs would have been nice for an occasional super-easy, kid-friendly meal.

Enter U.S. Wellness Meats. They, thankfully have it all. And to help you get familiar with their extensive line-up of sausages, they are giving away a sample pack of their sausages this week.

What You’ll Win

Basically, these are all my favorite U.S. Wellness Meats sausages. Packed full of nutrient-dense organ meats from grass-fed cows, these sausages are a great way to enjoy eating foods you might otherwise turn your nose up at. The Sausage Sampler includes:

  • Braunsweiger (1 lb.) pictured above
  • Snack Sticks (.5 lb.) pictured above
  • Salami (1 lb.) pictured above
  • Bologna (1 lb.) pictured above
  • Liverwurst (1 lb.)
  • Headcheese (1 lb.)
  • Polish Sausage (1 lb.)
  • Italian Sausage (1 lb.)
  • Beef Franks (1 lb.)
  • Summer Sausage (1 lb.)

All products in this package are all-beef with no artificial sweeteners, preservatives, fillers, or binders…just great grass-fed beef!

    I already do the RSS thing…have for a while. Love it! Keep it coming!

    Actually, when people ask me about food (they notice I don’t eat the cake or the pizza at the office party, my only fast food is Chipotle, and I often bring in milk – raw milk! *gasp!*) I always refer them to Food Renegade. Your site is, I believe, one of the best ones out there with ALL the nutritional information I need, minus mush of the sensationalism I find elsewhere. Thanks for that!

    Hi there,

    Love your site and all of the work you do!

    You talked about how you switched to pastured pork, and then you talk about how great it was to find Wellness Meats, which left me a bit confused because the message I got was that you found pastured pork there.

    According to the Wellness Meats website (, their pork is not pastured. “…A vegan diet is fed and outdoor access is available.” Pigs raised in barns with access to the outdoors (of which they would rarely take advantage since why should they when their food is right there in the barn) are certainly not “pastured.” Also, pigs are omnivorous and it is completely unnatural for them to eat a vegan diet.

    Folks like Joel Salatin raise truly pastured pigs. It is true that it is hard to find bacon, sausage, and liverwurst made with truly pastured pork, but it is certainly possible to do it yourself if you are willing to invest the time.

    It is so exciting that folks are learning about the benefits of eating a diet that is closer to nature, and it is so important that we are careful about how we use these terms to make sure that no misrepresentations are made. =)

    Many thanks for all of the wonderful work that you do!
