Excellent service, excellent product! After many unsuccessful attempts at eating "grass-fed" beef from Whole Foods and another local meat vendor, I gave Slankers a try. Hooray, they actually sell what they advertise...real, grass-fed beef. I am gluten intolerant and my body knows within seconds whether or not a food contains any grain since we follow a Paleo diet. Slanker's truly delivers their promise.

I understand that farms are at the mercy of nature, and often have products out of stock. This is not a problem at all, so long as I'm informed that the product is not available, and given the option to either wait until the product IS in stock, or buy from another source. Unfortunately, Slankers sent out an order lacking an item I not only specifically asked about, but had actually delayed the order for - never bothering to inform me at any point that the item was backordered and hadn't even been included in my price estimate. Why would they give me a price quote and not even tell me that the very item I asked about was unavailable and NOT included in the total? As a consumer, I had a right to know this before they charged my card and shipped that order. The order was delayed, *specifically* so I could get THAT product, so they had a over a week to give me that information. Since Slankers has a minimum order requirement, it's not like I can just wait until it's in stock and place an order specifically for that item, nor can I afford to place another large order with the HOPE of MAYBE getting the product I want.

This is just horrendous service. When I contacted them about it, they didn't even seem to care. This was totally irresponsible and unethical on their part and they don't care in the slightest about trying to rectify their mistake.

This was a costly lesson learned.

PS -- just the other day, there were several negative reviews posted here (including my original review), where did they go? I hope that Insider Pages will maintain the integrity of the site by NOT allowing the vendor to have unfavorable experiences removed.

I have been buying from Ted for over 10 years now. I started when I lived in San Deigo and now I continue to order from where I reside in KY. KY has lush grass and lots of cows. I still choose to buy from Ted. Don't fool yourself, he is passionate about what he does and has spent countless hours researching and educating himself on providing the closest food to being nutritionally perfect that is out there. Whole Foods and others can't compare, they say it is "grass fed" but it isn't 100%. If you eat fast food or cook your food in a microwave none of this matters to you and you probably don't need to order from Slankers. But if you truly value nutrition and health (and don't follow the food pyramid or think good saturated fat will kill you) then this place will be for you.

I have ordered meat from them several times. Their meat is delicious and tender (you have to cook grass fed meat differently...lower temps, slower cooking rate, and not well-done). I have had their beef roasts, steaks, ground beef, soup bones, and they are all excellent. They do not taste gamy...just like regular beef, to me. Ted Slanker is fanatical about the beef he sells and like other "artisans" can be quite a character, but I have always found him to be helpful, professional, honest, and passionate about his products. I have ordered from other places, and his is by far the best operation. They always help me with my order so that I get the best shipping rate. Sometimes they are out of stock on certain cuts, but hey, these are cows, not assembly-line widgets. I am thankful that there is a source of healthful grass fed meat that is reasonably priced.

I have purchased many times from Slankers. Chicken, goat, bison, beef, cheese, pork. I have never gotten anything but good meat and excellent service and I live in TX. While there are things I wouldn't buy again because they don't suit my taste, the meat was never bony or tough. I have my order ready for them in a spreadsheet that I e-mail and all goes smoothly. I did use another company but Slankers prices are better.

My wife ordered about 20 Pounds of meat from this place including a $100 Turkey that was to be shipped and arrive frozen. They say that they ship ground in packaging that can hold your meat at temperatures below 40 degrees to keep it safe.

Slankers grass fed meat is amazing! I have no idea what the previous reviewer was talking about. I have ordered and received the best customer service. I have always been informed when something was out of stock and I have found this company nothing but fair and friendly. The ribeye steak is my favorite food of all time! I also love the roasts, many oils, butter... the list goes on and on... Nothing beats Slanker's!
