We’ve heard from many of you who are closely anticipating the arrival of Beyond Bacon. Often times it goes along the lines of “Your book can’t come soon enough! I have a whole pig in my freezer waiting for it!” or “I’m going to order a whole pig just so I can utilize every part of your book!”
What an awesome thing to hear, since that’s exactly what we intended with the book! In fact, we are strategically releasing the book at the perfect time of year to have your hog sent to processing. We truly hope we have delivered a book that will maximize your piggy investment; we thank you for putting your trust in us.
But then of course, because the process can be very intimidating, there are the few people who ask us, “We want to do your whole book, but how am don’t even know where to start with buying a whole animal – help!” or “I want to order a whole pig now so that it is butchered and ready on July 2nd when Beyond Bacon comes out, can you share the information before the book is released?”
After some consideration we decided this is a completely reasonable thing for you to ask. And frankly, the idea that that we could be helping local farmers, your health and benefiting the earth by encouraging you to order a whole animal directly is very exciting! So, we’ve decided to step in and help you out. For those of you who have pre-ordered Beyond Bacon and just can’t wait to get your hands on it, we want to give you an 8 page PDF of the section of Beyond Bacon entitled “How to Find and Afford Pastured Pork” so that you can be prepared for July 2nd.
With this brief section, you’ll know everything you’ll need to find the good stuff in your area, including what questions to ask your pig farmer and how to navigate a cut sheet! We are even including one of our favorite pages, the pig cut diagram with sample cut sheet page – so you’ll know what you’re looking at!
How do I get this fantastic freebee?, you might ask. It’s simple! Email us and attach some proof of your pre-order with the subject “How to Find and Afford Pastured Pork” . It could be an Amazon receipt. It could be an order receipt from the bookstore. It might be a faxed wish list from the North Pole with a big green “NICE” stamp at the top. Maybe it’s an email from your wife saying that she’s ordered you our book as a Father’s Day present (when she really means a “Cook Pork For That Nice Lady You Live With Day” present). Just send us what you got, and we’ll make sure you’re ready to go when Beyond Bacon launches on July 2nd!
If you haven’t pre-ordered yet, we hope that this may serve as an incentive to do so. Did you know that pre-ordering is actually beneficial to you? It gives you the lowest-price guarantee (you pay on the day it ships, and at the lowest price the book ever was from the date on which you pre-ordered). It also ensures that the publisher prints enough copies in advance so that stock doesn’t run too low upon release – with Eat Like a Dinosaur we actually went to re-print the day before the book was released, which caused a delay in many people’s timely receipt of the book.
Upon receipt of your email, our crack team of fraud prevention specialists (really, just Monica), will send you the PDF! Then you can get started on arranging your pork delivery.
