Generally speaking, people are not motivated the same way. Many people resist change, and many others have different expectations for any and all aspects of doing business and what is or is not proper food. Since we operate within a small niche market, we cannot be all things to all people and we know we can't please everyone. But our aim is to provide the highest quality 100% grass-fed meat and the best scientific nutrition and cooking information at the best possible price.
Some people welcome change. Our grass-fed meats, with their bold flavors due to higher levels of Omega-3 fatty acids and many other powerful nutrients, do not taste like mass-produced, feed-lot meats. The difference in taste makes some folks uncomfortable. Therefore we don't tout our meats as the world's finest, best tasting, etc. Instead, we simply inform people that our meats are 100% grass-fed and grass-finished. When we refer to quality, it's in terms of nutrition. Our meats are not fancy nor are they gift-wrapped. They are not always perfectly tender. But they do provide 100% of the nutrient needs of man in perfect balance and that makes them the absolutely most perfect food.
Alarmingly, too few Americans are interested in nutrition. How their food is raised, harvested, and processed ranks higher on their radar screens. They'll often refuse to accept the better nutrition story and learn how to appreciate new flavors unless it's a "new" potato chip or some such concocted food. The focus at Slanker Grass-Fed Meat is perfect nutrition that leads to superior health. Therefore we are out of step with the mainstream.
There are other folks who believe that if small "Mom and Pop" food producers charge more for their products than the mass-produced, concocted foods of Big Business, then they are being ripped off. Many of these people have been conditioned to believe that only Big Business in concert with Big Government can provide them with "safe" food. In addition, they buy so many imported goods they no longer understand why buying supporting grassroots enterprises in our country is so vital to our national well-being.
Our testimonials are primarily from folks who focus on nutrition and are willing to go out of their way to shop for and eat only the healthiest foods. Our steady customers are used to the taste of 100% grass-fed meats and they really enjoy the authentic flavor. They are able to accept change and stand apart from the mob. And most of our customers know and accept that there will always be some inconsistencies in various cuts in the real meat business.
I must repeat, try as we might, small outfits like ours cannot possibly meet every whim of every customer. We will do our best to jump through hoops for any customer, but ask that you remember that some things are out of our control. Click the link for more about "The Power of Please & Thank You."
