Pink Slimey Ground Beef: No Thank You

Picture

No Pink Slime Here
The mantra of the big food and agriculture companies is how can we produce more for less?

The bottom line with pink slime in ground beef is dollars.

Not quality, not health, dollars.

This is a prime example of where we are at in the world of mass produced food.

What used to be relegated to pet food is now good enough for human consumption. Not that I'm thrilled with Fido getting a dose of pink slime either, but hey better him than me!

I have preached the "know where your food comes from and know what's in it" for a long time so it thrills me when main stream news media busts out a story like pink slime in ground beef. Only because so many more people are exposed again to the fact that agencies like the USDA, FDa and some others aren't really looking out for you like you hoped they were. You will have to take the responsibility into your own hands and find clean food for yourself.

McDonalds, Burger King and Taco Bell have all announced they don't use it anymore...GREAT. To me that's like saying we used to think it was OK to feed you pink slime but since you found out about it we'll stop.

Ground beef with pink slime added as a filler has a greater chance of e coli and so it is washed with ammonia. No thanks I'll pass.

Here at Spring Hill Farms we don't add anything to our ground beef. Not pink slime, not meat glue (heard about that one?) or anything else that you wouldn't want in your food.

Our mantra is clean, quality, healthy food first. Then and only then, we'll see what it costs to produce it.

Until next time...

 



 
 

Ground Beef 100% Grass Fed (Customer Message)

ground beef
I'm posting this to alert you to a deal we have available right now due to a mistake at our processor. We had a special order for 90/10 ground beef. Long story short, the order got ran as 80/20 ground beef.
 
So....we have 80/20 ground beef coming to our freezer that we don't have room for! Andy would store it for us at the plant but we want to move it out as soon as possible. This is 80 % lean ground beef that 99% of our customers desire. It makes great burgers, or can be added to any dish that you're making. This ground beef would be  fabulous to stock up for summer grilling. It's all vacuum sealed in 1 lb packages. As with all our beef is it 100% grass-fed which means it's loaded with all the health benefits!
 
Here's the deal:
 
We normally retail this beef for $5.99 lb but since we want to move it, we're going to let it go for $4.29 lb. Our loss is your gain! We are asking you take at least 25 lbs. It wouldn't make sense for us to deliver small amounts unless we could get a lot of it sold in a central area or you live in the Newark area and we could arrange for you to pick it up or meet us somewhere in our daily travels.
 
At this price I don't expect it will last long so let me know quickly if you want to place an order.
