Join us on Wednesday January 29 at 7:30 pm EST, for a special encore presentation of our interiew with John Wood, the founder of US Wellness Meats. We had a great conversation about The Benefits of Grassfed Meat and Dairy. You can tune in HERE.
“John Wood is a life-long resident of Lewis County Missouri. Following a Farm Operations B.S. degree at Iowa State University in 1975, John returned back to a 5th generation family farm and was involved in day to day management of conventional Northeast Missouri family farm from 1975 to 2000.
John married in 1983 and added two daughters and a son into the rural community. All have prospered on a stubborn work ethic that has preserved the rural way of life for centuries.
In February of 2000, John and three partners created a pasture to consumer online grass-fed meat business on farms in Northeast Missouri and Western Illinois. Grassland Beef, LLC dba US Wellness Meats was organized officially on September 1, 2000. Marketing commenced on November 7, 2000, and continues today nationwide and into several foreign countries. Grass-fed beef, lamb, bison, butter, cheese, free range poultry, pastured ABF pork, organic snacks, wild-caught seafood, raw honey and gourmet rabbit compose the core business model. US Wellness Meats has been featured by professional athletes, chefs, doctors, trainers, authors and the likes of Fox News in recent years.
During the past 38 years, John has held leadership positions with Lewis County Extension, Lewis County Farm Bureau, Missouri Young Farmers, a three year stint on the Missouri Soil and Water Commission during the mid-1990’s, and is a founding member & chairman of Missouri Wind Resources, LLC.
It is exciting to be in an industry that supports animal agriculture, treats animals with respect, provides entry positions for young farmers with low overhead, is good for the land and plant community, good for the rural community and improves health and wellness for our consumers.”
