Member Story: Judy Meyer

IMG_2761Starting in childhood, I have eaten healthy foods and exercised several times a week. Throughout my twenties and early thirties I kept fit and looked healthy.

The moment I turned 40, my body changed (rebelled) I noticed “love handles” and gaining a “muffin top.”

Even though I stepped up my exorcise routine, it had no effect on my changing shape.

Ten months ago, I joined Santa Rosa Strength and Conditioning. The instructor, Chaz, was knowledgeable about the complexity of the muscles and the body. She worked with me and helped change some of my habits.

I just turned 55. I feel strong, fit and flexible. Best of all the bulges went away!

Victorian Farmstead Meats gives SRSC members 10% off

SRSC is partnering with Victorian Farmstead to offer SRSC members the best local, pastured meats and wild fish from Marin and Sonoma counties. Learn more about Victorian Farmstead from owner Adam Parks below, and check out his great offer this month for SRSC members!

VF collageHello Santa Rosa Strength and Conditioning!

We are Victorian Farmstead Meat Company in Sebastopol, and are really looking forward to working with your club. Offering the highest quality all natural and pasture raised beef, lamb, pork, chicken and sausage, Victorian Farmstead’s mission is to bring the best meat Sonoma and Marin County has to offer to our local communities. We are hyper-local, with all of our meat raised in West Sonoma and Marin Counties (within about 25 miles of our farm in Sebastopol, CA.) If we don’t raise it ourselves, we know exactly how and by whom it is being raised. Our chicken is our specialty, as we raise 100% of what we sell. Most of the ranches that raise for us are friends of ours from when I was a kid out in Tomales, and those that are new friends adhere to the same level of quality and sustainability as we demand of ourselves.

Now that we have our own butcher shop inside the new Community Market in Sebastopol, we can cut our beef, lamb, pork, chicken, and rabbit anyway you/we want. House made sausages, VF Bacon Burgers, and marinades made from all organic ingredients in the Community Market Kitchen are all available to you with a few keystrokes. As a member of SRSC, you will be able to pre-order whatever you like and we will deliver it to your club once a week!

We also have VF Subscription Boxes, where our members subscribe for3, 6 or 12 months and receive a 5 or 10 pound box of Beef, Pork and Lamb every month or every other week for up to 25% off our retail prices. We also offer a VF Custom Box, where you get to pick what you get each time and save 15% off our retail prices.

For the month of September, we are setting aside our bready, cheesy food sins and taking up a healthier diet- in short, we’re going Paleo! All through September, keep an eye on our Facebook page, Pinterest boards and Instagram feeds (@vicfarmmeats) for new takes on old recipes (Paleo Pulled Pork, anyone?) and updates on how we’re doing on our road to better health.

In honor of Paleo month, we are making an exclusive offer for members of Santa Rosa Strength and Conditioning: 10% off any pre-orders made during September! And to sweeten the deal? We’ll bring the meat straight to you! If you would prefer to pick up from us, we can have orders ready Tuesday-Sunday at our meat counter in Sebastopol OR at the Santa Rosa Vet’s Hall Farmer’s Market Saturdays from 8:30am to 1:00pm. We are also offering a $50 gift certificate to each new person who purchases a 6 month or longer subscription.

If you have any questions, feel free to reach out via phone or email. We look forward to meeting and working with you!

-Adam Parks, Owner
Victorian Farmstead Meat Co.
