Can you recommend a dynamite pastured liverwurst that I can order online?

I am kind of obsessed with liverwurst, but only have immediate access to the supermarket brand.

Is there a brand of pastured liverwurst that I can order online that you would recommend?

P.S.: Braunschweiger is great, too!

FYI - according to the Jones website, it's not nitrite free. Which is very disappointing as it is one that I can get at my supermarket.

Diapers... how paleo... :) J/K familygrokumentarian! Just teasing, because we all walk a fine (or very thick) line between attempting a natural diet and lifestyle in its simplest sense, while juggling that with the hectic life in the current modern paradigm. It's quite paleo to do something similar to what our parents taught us, and to use what is readily available, though! It never occurred to me that our paleo forebearers probably just let the kids run around and crap where ever... probably made for fertile soil!!

Learning how to process organ meats is on a very long list of time-intensive traditional foods preparation methods that I'd eventually like to learn...but probably won't happen until my kids are all out of diapers.

I appreciate the value of something processed at home, but I'm a mother of a 4 yr old, and an 18 month old who I routinely find swan-diving off of elevated surfaces - besides that, I have yet to even find a good local source of any pastured animal products, much less liver (the closest is conventionally raised beef liver that I sometimes see for sale at the grocery store). At this point in my life, shipping pastured liverwurst to my house would be the best compromise for my current season's lack of time or ability to go on long outings searching for pastured products or process them by myself

Sorry- got that mixed up- the Braunschweiger is only beef and liver, the liverwurst has heart and kidney too. It's a little hard to find on the site, so just type "braunschweiger" or "liverwurst" into the search box and it'll come up.

Is there a reason you want to ship it to your house? If you can't find some good stuff at the local store or farmer's market, consider buying your own liver and processing it. You get more control over flavor that way and, well, it only takes a few seconds to blend up some delicious organ meat.

FYI, Braunschweiger is typically pig liver seasoned with bacon, or whatever else falls off the assembly line. Delicious. I find it very interesting that there are beef options out there, as I was raised in a German-American household in which this stuff was served most weeks.

At any rate. Hooray organ meats!

I haven't tried any pastured liverwurst, but the Commodities Natural Market near my apartment sells Jones Braunschweiger, which is nitrate/nitrite and anti-biotic free. It's yummmmmmmmmmmmmm.

I've also been wanting to try the U.S. Wellness offerings.

I haven't tried it myself, but I've heard very good things about US Wellness Meats: http://www.grasslandbeef.com/StoreFront.bok From what I understand, the Braunschweiger is more recommended than the liverwurst, but that could just because they have more than just liver in there. :-)

One comment about US Wellness meats: their liverwurst and braunschweiger nutrition label shows Vitamin A: 0%. I'm not really sure why, but liver is one of the highest sources of Vitamin A.

Update: I got a response from US Wellness: "Much to our dismay - most of the nutritional tests did not run the vitamins, which is why there is a lack of Vitamin A. The Liverwurst is 30% liver, and our Braunschweiger is 40% liver."

So the nutrition label is just incorrect.
