Nutrient Dense Meats available from Eugene Local Foods

This comes to us from a local Eugene Chapter volunteer:

I’ve been emailing the farmers that sell meats at Eugene Local Foods (the online farmer’s market here in Lane County).

They are starting to offer nutrient dense meat parts and I request your help by purchasing them and feeding them to you family.
Here are the new offering and some of my favorites:
  • Duck Feet  ($6.25/5 lb)  makes amazing bone broth, cook 48 hours on simmer then strain after beating all the parts a bit with a spoon.
  • Chicken Feet  same as duck feet
  • Duck Gizzards   they are looking into selling them
  • I’m asking about Chicken Gizzards
  • Duck Hearts    I’ve just gotten the first order (3.90 LB)

They sell all these livers:

  • Beef, Duck, Chicken, Lamb
  • I purchased Pork Kidneys   they were delicious ($.63/pair)
  • Lamb Hearts   OMG, I’m in love
I always freeze these items for a minimum of 12 days before eating. I’ve learned to NEVER over cook any of the organ meats. 
Please consider checking out this resource. I find most of these items to be reasonably priced. They also sell bones, and the prices for bones have been going up. Meaty Lamb Bones were $.95/lb, now they are $1.95/lb :((
Deck Family Farm sells a ground mixture of organ meats for $6 a pound (in the pet section). It’s very good, I just find it a bit expensive.
Thanks,  Rouanna

Variety Meats Class – Discount for Pregnant and Nursing Mothers!

We would like to offer the special price of $22.50 for pregnant and nursing mothers who would like to attend our Variety Meats Class.  Nutrient-dense organ meats are a vital component of a healthy diet for growing children. 

Until fairly recently, organ meats were commonly served to children.  In a 1949 recipe book we found a page that outlined a 7-day menu plan for children.  The recipes “For the School Child” contain four servings of organ meats per week!

It was expected that children would eat these foods without issue, and recognized that they provided excellent nutrition for growing children.

We know that raising healthy children in this modern toxic world is a chalenge.  It is also one of the most important jobs that anyone can have for bringing about a better future for the world.  Thank you.

We will cover WHY to eat variety meats, WHERE to buy locally, and HOW to prepare and enjoy these wonderful foods.  All partisipants receive a recipe booklet, tasty samples, demos of recipes and time for Q&A.

March 23rd: Variety Meats Class

Every time we ask participants at the end of one of our classes what other topics they would like us to cover, someone says: Organ Meats.  For years we have wondered… Are we were ready to teach an organ meats class?…  Are you all ready to attend one?

We teachers have been trying out recipes from Nourishing Traditions and old cookbooks, and have been meeting to sample the results.  They are good!  We all agreed that we will eat these foods and serve them to our families.  Yes, we are ready to teach them, and we think you are ready to taste and learn to use these nutrient-dense foods.

Variety meats and organs contain the richest concentration of  vitamins and minerals of any foods.  Come learn what makes these foods valued by traditional people the world over.  Sample and learn to make delicious meals that include Sweet Breads (thymus), Gizzards, Heart, Liver and more!

You asked for it!  We are finally teaching a class on using variety and organ meats! If you have been curious to try them, but not brave enough to do it on your own, this is the class for you!
