$1000 Gift Certificate to Tendergrass Farms – As many of you know, Tendergrass Farms is a cooperative style online grass fed meat shop that exists for the purpose of economically sustaining small-scale American family farms that are raising meats in a pasture-centric manner without the use of artificial hormones, antibiotics, or GMOs and yet struggling to find customers who value their quality products. Tendergrass Farms accomplishes this vision by offering a convenient way for meat lovers to buy these farmers’ grass fed beef, pastured pork, pastured chicken, and pastured turkey whether they live in Detroit, New York, or a cave in southern California. The organization was born just a couple of years ago out of the need that their founding farmers saw for a bridge between the often geographically isolated family farmer and consumers all across the country who wanted to support them but didn’t have an easy way to do so. By implementing an ultra efficient dry ice shipping model they have created a unique way for the paleo community to buy meats of unparallelled quality directly from the farmers who need their support the most. If this sounds interesting to you, take a moment to watch their short 4-minute video about Sustaining Family Farms.
The winner of this contest will get a $1000 gift certificate that can be used at Tendergrass Farms. That’s a whole lot of meat.

If so, let the world in on your secrets. Grab your camcorder, and show us how to make something Primal. There aren’t really restrictions on how you do it. The only requirement is that your video relates in some way to the Primal Blueprint eating plan.
