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!

    What exactly is twitter? That’s kind of a stupid question.

    Anyways… I registered and my username is Elphaba :)

  2. Betsy says

    I registered – user name is Betsy.

    Can’t do the rest – I already subscribe to your blog and follow you on Twitter (I’m just a stalker at heart, lol), and don’t have a blog of my own.

  3. says

    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!)

    I couldn’t get the pull down menus to work right so it said I am male, and from Aruba. Neither of which is true.

    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.


  12. Annie says

    Okay – I was already following you, re-tweeted the giveaway, signed up for your rss feed, joined the party (username zigweegwee) and posted on my stumbleblog. And to think it only took me half an hour on dial-up! 😉 My son will love you forever if I win, since I so rarely get red meat anymore.

  13. says

    Thanks for the comment! Hearing my 5 year old explain God to the 3 and 2 year olds is hilarious and eye-opening to me about how we portray God and if I’m doing a decent job or not. :)

    I have tried four times to join at the Grass-Fed party site including three times in FireFox and once in Ephiphany. Every time I get an “invalid token” error when trying to submit the profile information. Could you ask them to check it out?
