Make it a Grass-Fed 2010!

“Eat animals that have themselves eaten well.”
~Michael Pollan, from Food Rules and Eater’s Manual

Happy new year Slow Food members and friends!

If your new year’s resolutions involved eating more delicious, locally raised, grass-fed meat this year, we’d like you to meet Aaron and Melissa Miller.

On their Kinsman, Ohio farm, the Millers have raised grass-fed cattle with no chemical fertilizers, pesticides, hormones or antibiotics for the past decade!

And the Millers are here to help you with that grass-fed goal! The Millers have scheduled three delivery dates in Cleveland next week and will be bringing a wide variety of grass-fed beef as well as pork and lamb.

A complete listing of Miller Livestock products is included below.

Why not go grass-fed in 2010? It’s better for the animals, for you and the planet. We’ve attached some additional information on the healthful benefits of eating pastured meats here. The website for accurate information and sources of grass-fed meats.,9171,1200759-1,00.html: Time magazine article (from 2006!) extolling the health benefits of grass-fed meats.

Wishing you a happy, healthy New Year!


From the Millers:

Hi everyone!

Hopefully this thaw in the temps and the sunshine are making today a better day!

I'm attaching a list of the products we have available for delivery. At the end of the email are the places we'll be in Cleveland over the next few weeks. Notice especially that we have a wide selection of pork including some new products. Also, the beef specials-comfort food and variety pack--allow you to stock your freezer and try some things you might otherwise not order.We'll be making the trip to Cleveland several times so hopefully one of the choices below will work out for you.If you'd rather not be hearing from us, please let me know and I'll remove your name from my delivery list.Let me know if you have any questions.

Stay warm.

Melissa & Aaron Miller
