If you can’t get your meat locally, you can mail order grass-fed meat and other wonderful products like liver and pemmican from US Wellness Meats. In the interview I mentioned their Liverwurst, which is a mixture of grass-fed beef trim (30%), liver (30%), heart (20%) and kidney (20%). I really think this “is the tastiest way to incorporate healthy grass-fed beef organs into your diet!” All of their beef products are 100% grass-fed and grass-finished. They source from family farms, and endorse sustainable farming and humane practices.
