GrassRoots Meats Newsletter  March 2015
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

All Star Winner! 
Again this year GrassRoots Meats has received the All Star Award for excellence in internet marketing from Constant Contact, the vehicle we use to send this newsletter.

We received the following congratulatory note: 

"For another year, you demonstrated exemplary engagement with your audience. Once again, you set the standard of excellence. We are thrilled to present you with the All Star Award for 2014! 

Every year, the bar to All Star status gets higher and higher. Only 10% of Constant Contact customers receive it. But 65% of All Stars, like yourself, are multiple-year recipients. 

We're proud that more and more customers have unlocked the success formula to building better relationships with their audience!

Relationships matter to us at Constant Contact. Thanks for making yours count. Congratulations again, and we hope you have another great year in 2015."

Thanks to each and every one of you for your faithfulness to us, and especially for all the encouraging comments you send us throughout the year in response to the newsletter.

Organic, Free Ranch Chicken Hearts and Livers Available!


Wanted to let you know that we are excited to have found a wonderful source for both chicken livers and chicken hearts. They are available now, and the price is $4.59 per pound. The package sizes vary, but for the most part hover around one pound each. Don't know about you, but I sure missed being able to get my chicken organ meats. Yummm!




New Egg Layers 
We just bought nearly 3 dozen chickens from a friend who was moving out of town, so we will have a great supply of eggs for any of you local folks who want to be placed on our customer list. We supplement our pastured chickens with an organic, non-GMO feed, and the price for the eggs is $5.00 per dozen. 

The eggs will be available at the warehouse on Mondays, but best to call or email first to make sure that we have some available. If you want to place a standing order for each week, we will be sure to have eggs ready for you every Monday.

Got Time for a Survey?
I received the following survey request from Tanna Knewson that I would like to share with you:
I am currently conducting research for my master's thesis through the UN mandated University for Peace (www.upeace.org), which is a university that was established by UN treaty in 1980 for the purpose of providing internationally-recognized Masters and Doctoral degrees in the field of human rights. For my research, I am attempting to understand what leads up to the moment when consumers decide to switch from conventional feed lot products to grass-fed meat.

Therefore, I am looking to interview 25-30 people from around the country who regularly make purchases from farms that use humane, sustainable farming practices and allow their animals to roam freely.

Each interview will only last 45 minutes to 1 hour and can be completed over the phone.

While, at first glance, this topic may seem somewhat outside the realm of human rights, my goal is to create a model of sorts that can transfer to other industries where moral purchasing decisions exist (i.e. products produced in sweat shops or through the use of child labor, etc.).

If you're interested in being involved, I can be reached at tanna.krewson@gmail.com or by phone at (678) 630-1203. Either method is fine.

Your help is extremely important and will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance,

Tanna Krewson

Tanna sent me the list of questions she will be asking, and I encourage you to contact her as they are both intriguing and enlightening. I feel our customer base perfectly matches her survey profile, and you will surely find it worthwhile to take the time to visit with her.

March Specials 
We have a large supply of Lamb Soup/Stew Bones available, excellent for bone broth, so for March we are offering 20 pounds of lamb bones for only $60, a savings of $40 off the regular price.


In addition we are offering 10 pounds of Ground Lamb for $130, a savings of $10 off the regular price of $140.

And if you combine these specials with any other cuts and your order comes to $200 you will get an additional 5% off, and if your order comes to $300 you will get an additional 10% off.

Now that's a deal!

In Closing . . .   
February was kind of a rough month for us. We lost a cow, a bull, and a couple of calves - not a great way to start the year. In spite of these setbacks, though, we are very optimistic about 2015 - the condition of our herds and the promise of good things to come. It always seems like God prepares us in advance for the trials by putting in place blessings that come ahead of them, helping to minimize the pain. We have been blessed abundantly in so many ways, and we pray that you are reaping rewards as well. 

Thank you again for your support.
  
Lois & Allan
