Sometimes it can be difficult finding bones to make stock and bone broth. And, when you can find bones, they can be very expensive. This has opened the door for small family ranches to shine and provide superior products at reasonable prices. We have been fortunate to be able to partner with several of these ranches to provide our customers with the healthiest bones available to support your broth-making endeavors. Cattle from these sources have never been fed grain or grain by-products, antibiotics, drugs, or artificial hormones and they follow the Temple Grandin humane treatment of animals guidelines.
“We believe in eating meat that is sustainably & ethically raised & humanely slaughtered. It’s not only good for our bodies, but we are pretty thankful to be living on this big sphere we call earth and want to honor what God has given us by taking care of it. Because of this we also believe in raising happy animals that are well cared for.”

“We were both raised in the beautiful Willamette Valley where we currently live. We have enjoyed grass fed and finished beef as part of our holistic lifestyle for some time now and love helping others gain access to affordable meat that is free of hormones & antibiotics.

Our goal is to provide the peace of mind that comes from having a direct relationship with a farmer you can know and trust.
Each farm that we partner with must already meet the standards we practice for their livestock’s compassionate and ethical care while maintaining our strict 100% grass-fed beef & pasture-raised production standards.
This means cattle that are never fed grain or grain by-products and never fed antibiotics, drugs, or artificial hormones. Pork and poultry must maintain the same standards while being fed grain diets consisting of only Non-GMO feeds.”
“US WELLNESS MEATS IS OWNED AND RUN BY FAMILY FARMERS WITH AN EYE TOWARD THE FUTURE AND A RESPECT FOR THE PAST.
US Wellness Meats was founded in 2000 in Monticello, Missouri (pop. 98) by visionary farmers, who saw that big-business cattle-raising practices were taking a toll on our animals and our health. By returning to rotational grazing practices that are good for the planet and good for our cattle, we led the way in introducing a new generation to the unmatched taste, tenderness, and healthiness of grass-fed beef.
Our animals live by the nature-approved grazing practices of the bison of the American Great Plains.
For thousands of years, bison thrived in abundance on lush North American grassland. Millions of animals lived in harmony with the land by continuously moving from one grazing area to another, allowing grassland to renew itself regularly. The relationship was good for the animals and good for the planet.
Our animals don’t need antibiotics or growth hormones to grow big and healthy. Our land doesn’t need pesticides or artificial irrigation systems to develop rich, fertile biodiversity.
Our healthy meat has developed a healthy following.
It turns out that what’s good for animals and the planet is also good for you. Our meat is tender and tasty, but it doesn’t have all the excess fat of animals fed with grain in confinement. It’s full of nutrients that can only come from a fully grass-fed diet—omega-3 fatty acids, vitamin A, vitamin E, and CLA—and free of all the pesticides, hormones, and antibiotics that are found in grain-fed beef. “
