30% OFF Ground Bison Patties!

Did you know that bison is a very healthy, traditional source of meat in North America and is a great alternative to beef?

Tropical Traditions offers a line of 100% grass-fed AND finished bison products from northern Wisconsin. Bison can often be a difficult meat to source, and most other sources of Bison are NOT 100% grass-fed, but include grains in their feed as well. Our bison are naturally healthy and hearty animals and come from a region where they are grazed on prairie grass with NO chemicals, hormones, or grains - EVER! Extra measures are taken to keep the animals in a very low stress, natural environment, which ensures a more tender and sweeter tasting meat. The products offered here are from the same buffalo that supply top-quality bison to many fine restaurants and shops across the U.S.!

This week, we have 30% OFF sales on our Grass-Fed Ground Bison. Tender, delicious, and perfect for grilling. Click below to learn more and stock up for summer!

35% OFF RAW FREEZE DRIED FRUIT

Tropical Traditions offers a line of organic and Fair Trade certified freeze-dried fruits. The ripest and tastiest fruits are carefully selected and freeze dried to eliminate the water within the fruit. All other natural properties of the fruit remain intact. Our supplier works to develop sustainable products and to help farming communities, and has been collaborating closely with local fruit co-ops in order to develop this line as Fair Trade certified.

There is no sugar added, no coloring and no preservatives. All you get is the taste of fresh fruits. Fresh fruits are flash frozen and then placed in a vacuum chamber. About 98% of the fruit's moisture is drawn off by evaporating the ice, at temperatures as low as -50f. The freeze-dried fruit is sealed in moisture-proof and oxygen-proof packaging to ensure freshness until opened. When water is replaced, the fruit regains its original fresh flavor, aroma, texture and appearance.

Now, through Thursday, March 24th, you can purchase the following products:

Organic Raw Freeze Dried Bananas (2.5 oz.) for 35% off the retail price. That's a $6.99 retail value for only $4.49 and a $1.50 savings off our normal sale price!

Organic Raw Freeze Dried Pineapple (1.5 oz.) for 35% off the retail price. That's a $6.99 retail value for only $4.49 and a $1.50 savings off our normal sale price!

Sunday #Devotional -Death is in Your Future: Have You Prepared for it?

The most important event in our life, however, is our physical death – the end of our life when our physical body can no longer support our spirit. It is also an event that we have little or no control over. We cannot prevent it.

Death is a certainty, and it is not very predictable. After our body dies, we go on living into eternity. And yet an event as important as this seldom gets the attention in preparation that other less important major events in our life receive.

So have you made preparations for this inevitable future event in your life?

45% OFF GRASS-FED LAMB RIBS

Grass-Fed Traditions supplies 100% grass-fed lamb from small-scale family farms in Wisconsin. These sheep graze on lush pasture all summer long in the rolling hills of the "Driftless Area" of southwestern Wisconsin. The Driftless Area of Wisconsin is famous around the world because it is completely surrounded by glaciated territory. It preserves a large sample of what the rest of Wisconsin, as well as northern and eastern United States, were like before the Glacial Period. The Driftless Area is driftless because of three factors: 1. The highland to the north furnished temporary protection from ice invasion. 2. The more rapid movement of glacial lobes in the lowland to the east and the region to the west resulted in the final joining of these ice lobes south of the Driftless Area, so that it was completely surrounded by the continental glacier. 3. The termination of the forward movement and the beginning of retreat came before there was time for the ice from the north, east and west to cover the driftless remnant. The result is a unique geographical area of rolling hills that the early settlers of Wisconsin recognized was especially well-suited for grazing. Today many small-scale family farms still graze this rich soil, and some of the most world-renown artisan cheeses are also from this rich agricultural area of Wisconsin. Grass-Fed Traditions now offers premium grass-fed lamb grazed on pastures from this same rich soil of Wisconsin. We believe you will not find tastier lamb from anywhere in the world!

Now, through Sunday, July 17th only, you can purchase our Grass-fed Lamb Ribs for 45% off the retail price. That's a $58.95 retail value for only $32.39 and a $7.60 savings over our normal sales price! Order here

Healthy Traditions Adds Traditionally Produced and Glyphosate-Tested Rolled Oats to Product Line

Healthy Traditions' new Traditionally Produced Rolled Oats are grown on a small family farm in Wisconsin using sustainable methods without any pesticides, herbicides or chemical fertilizers. As an added assurance they are also tested for the presence of glyphosate and no trace was found.

We have tested many batches of oats nationwide, including those certified organic, and it has been extremely difficult to find sources with no trace of the herbicide glyphosate present.

These oats are processed by a small family-run mill, also in Wisconsin, and are never subjected to any heat processing and are truly raw. This mill is dedicated to milling only grains grown on nearby farms that are free from pesticides and herbicides.

30% OFF SOY-FREE GROUND CHICKEN

What makes Tropical Traditions Pastured Poultry different from other chickens?

1. Tropical Traditions Pastured Poultry are raised outdoors on pasture.
Commercially produced chickens are raised entirely indoors with tens of thousands of other chickens in close quarters. They typically never see the sun or pasture. Organic or "Free Range" chickens also have no standard definition or industry guidelines for how long chickens must be outdoors on pasture, leaving the consumer very confused. The USDA definition of "free-range" is rather vague. In order to label their meat and poultry "free-range or free-roaming," "Producers must demonstrate to the Agency that the poultry has been allowed access to the outside." (1) No mention of vegetation (pasture) is made. Poultry producers themselves seem to have no common standards on what the term means. Some producers interpret "access to the outside" as a small pop-door (chicken door) on an end-wall of a 100 ft. long shed filled with un-caged birds moving about freely on a litter-covered floor. Others feel they are compliant with the spirit of free-range if their birds are outside in the open air and under the sun; even if their "range" is simply bare dirt.

When it comes to the consumer's perception of "free-range," arguably the vision that "free-range" most often conjures is of a bird happily hunting and pecking in the grass in an open field. Because of the wholesomeness associated with the term "organic," many consumers take for granted that all certified organic poultry raised for meat and eggs are raised outside on green pasture. Sadly, this is not so. The term "free-range" is not even listed in the NOP (National Organic Program) "terms defined." They do give guidelines that say: "All organically raised animals must have access to the outdoors..." So when someone purchases poultry products labeled "free range" or "organic," the birds may never have actually seen the light of day or green grass its entire life. Technically, they simply have to have a door out of their confinement, but they don't have to necessarily walk through that door to meet the requirements.

2. Tropical Traditions pastured poultry are fed Cocofeed which contains no soy.
Cocofeed is an organic chicken-feed ration developed by Tropical Traditions that contains coconut pulp as well as other high-quality natural ingredients. The coconut pulp is the residue left over after coconut oil has been extracted from the coconut meat. Cocofeed contains NO soy.

In tropical cultures, coconut has been a traditional ingredient in chicken feed for hundreds, if not thousands of years. The coconut pulp residue left over after coconut oil was extracted from the coconut meat is still a common animal feed component today in places where coconuts grow. This coconut pulp is high in fiber and protein. Mechanically extracted coconut pulp was also approved by the FDA as an animal feed and listed in the AAFCO (Association of American Feed Control Officials, Official Publication) as early as 1955. While coconut cannot supply ALL the nutritional needs of chickens, there are multitudes of studies that have been done in the Philippines and elsewhere showing how coconut pulp can be a major component of chicken feeds when combined with other quality ingredients. Some of these studies are more than 50 years old.

In more recent history, with the development of fast-growing "broiler" factory chickens, soy has become a key ingredient in chicken feeds for the purpose of supplying a high concentration of protein to promote fast growth. It is very difficult to find a chicken in the US market today that has not been fed high soy-based feeds. Even chickens advertised as "organic" or "free range" are almost always fed an organic mixture high in soybeans.

3. Tropical Traditions pastured poultry are raised by family farmers.
Tropical Traditions Pastured Poultry chickens are all raised by family farmers. These farmers run diversified farms practicing sustainable agriculture. They will rotate tracts of land with crops and other animals, or let it go fallow from time to time. When a batch of chickens is raised on a piece of pasture, typically that pasture will not see chickens again for two or more years. In the interval, crops may be grown in that pasture, or it may go fallow allowing grass to grow, die, and decompose so that the soil is kept in balance and not contaminated from too much chicken manure. So when you buy Tropical Traditions pastured poultry, you are supporting small-scale family farmers and by-passing the system that produces the conventional "factory chicken."

Our soy-free ground chicken includes the whole bird, both white and dark meat! This is the meat only - NO bones. Note: Our family processor in Wisconsin that grinds this up for us is no longer USDA inspected, only State of Wisconsin inspected, so we cannot ship it across state lines for human consumption - only as pet food.

Now, you can save 30% off of our retail price on a package of our Soy-free Ground Chicken (approx. 1 lb.). That's a $15.00 retail value for only $10.50 and a $2.39 savings over our normal sale price! Order here.
