Wellshire Farms is a family owned operation that produces all natural, minimally processed meat products that are free of artificial ingredients and preservatives. All aspects of our operation, from farm to processor, are monitored by a third party auditor from an independent company to assure only the highest quality healthy food products.
Lou’s Naturals is the flagship for the umbrella of our ever growing brands. We wanted to create an identity that would relate all of our brands. Each brand under Lou’s Naturals represents different cuisines that are all natural to its truest definition; free of antibiotics, nitrates, nitrites, preservatives and artificial ingredients.
Using our company president’s name, Lou, shows the relationship between all of our brands. Our company began with Lou’s vision of creating a product that could be trusted, and a company based on family values. We want you to know that Lou is still active in our daily operations. The identity concept conveys a feeling of comfort, pureness, and homemade. We wanted the keep the logo simple, just like our products!
Animal welfare is extremely important to both of these great companies, and I so appreciate that. You can tell in the quality of their products how important natural production really is to them. We have enjoyed many of the Wellshire products before as you can see below but have most recently had the opportunity to review and now feature the gluten free products offered by Lou’s Naturals. Here are our thoughts on the products we have enjoyed in the past as well as most recently.
Lou’s Natural Chicken Sausages are so tasty! The quality of meat really comes through in the clean, flavorful taste. Each unique combination of flavors really encouraged me to find my creative hat and get to cooking. Wether boiled, friend, roasted or baked these chicken sausages are a WIN! The Lou’s family deli hams were also fantastic and an absolutely lovely addition to breakfast sandwiches or a classic ham and cheese for a quick weeknight meal (on gluten free bread of course).
Dino Bites- These tasty little gluten free chicken nuggets were my boys favorite foods! They just loved feeling “normal” with a dinosaur shaped nuggets like their friends get. While I thought the taste was good but more juvenile then I prefer, gluten free kiddos adore them!
Pork Bacon (In multiple GF flavors/cuts)- Absolutely amazing taste and quality. You can tell it was raised and produced in the best environment. I personally enjoyed the thick cut bacon hot on Sunday morning. It was the perfect accompaniment to gluten free pancakes!
Turkey Bacon- I used this to make a healthier, lower fat version of my Hashbrown, Egg and Cheese Breakfast Muffins. They were so great! This turkey bacon was the best I’ve had yet. In fact, we preferred the turkey bacon egg muffins over the pork which was shocking!
Salami, Chorizo and Pepporoni Slices- I used the chorizo and pepperoni on a gluten free pizza not knowing what I would think. I am now officially addicted to chorizo and pepperoni pizza! The pepperoni was a great “classic” taste that we all enjoy, while the chorizo added a little spice and kick that bumped this pizza to the next level. The Salami is excellent on salads with sliced olives, pepperoncinis, roasted peppers and garbanzo beans…mmm!
