La Cense Grass-fed Beef Giveaway

It happened last week. The FedEx man rang the door bell and handed me a biodegradable styrofoam ice chest packed with two flank steaks and two pounds of ground beef — all from a 100% grass-fed and finished cow that used to call Montana home.

The box came courtesy of La Cense Beef, an exemplary ranching operation that’s been around since 1869. And do you know why they sent it to me?

(As if the title didn’t give it away…. no pun intended!)

They wanted me to enjoy a couple of grass-fed steaks on the house, and I did! And then they wanted me to enthusiastically spread some grass-fed beef love by hosting a Giveaway.

The Prize

Hold on to your seats, folks, ‘cuz this is good stuff!

    Kyle — Twitter is a micro-blogging service. You write posts (called tweets) that are 140 characters long or less. Watch this video called Twitter in Plain English. It’s pretty short and it’ll explain everything:

    Betsy — Shucks, I’m a softy. Even if you already follow me on Twitter, go ahead and tweet about it and I’ll count it as an entry! (I’ll count your subscription, too.)

    Hey, that goes for all of you! If you already follow me on Twitter or Subscribe, just let me know in a comment. (And be sure to tweet about the giveaway!)

    Hi, I am new to your blog and had a question about grass fed beef. I don’t eat beef now as I am concerned about the mad cow disease. I am worried about the possibility of contamination at the processing center. Since that is so centralized in the US, do you know where the grass fed organic meat is getting processed once its out of the farm? I am referring to the cutting up of the meat by processing. I don’t know if there is an industry term for it. I live in San Francisco and currently shop at Rainbow Groceries and Whole Foods. I don’t know where to go to find this information.
