Grass-Fed Butter and Grass-Fed Cheese are amongst the world's best kept nutritional secrets. The cheeses have Omega-6 to Omega-3 ratios of 0.7:1 and the butters are 1:1. These fatty products have perfect balances of essential fats for optimizing your health. They are good for the nervous system, brain function, and immune system. This is why eating proper fats is good and why margarine was one of man's worst inventions.
Slanker Meat Descriptions
The grass-fed livestock business is ranching in its most basic form. The rancher owns land and it grows grass. The grass gets its energy from the sun and it's free. Grass provides 100% of the nutrients and energy needs of all domestic livestock when it is eaten. Pastures are irrigated by natural rainfall. The livestock have a symbiotic relationship with the plants and the soils. Therefore the rancher simply selects the critters he wants and let's them dine on the grass. If he keeps it real simple, the rancher just grows grass and lets the livestock do all the work. This is basic. Ironically, this simplistic, most environmentally friendly approach produces the healthiest food man can eat.
When it comes to pigs and chickens it's not so easy. They can't be raised efficiently like ruminants. Many people do raise pigs and chickens on pastures, but they are supplemented usually with corn and soy. In the end, in terms of nutrition these pigs and chickens are very much like the meat products you can buy at Walmart and, yes, Wholefoods. Organic, natural, and other nice names do not apply to nutrition. That's why we are Beyond Organic.
It's also why we go the extra mile with very expensive supplements to make sure our pork and poultry products are the world's best. The critters are what they eat. Please take the time to understand what we do. Learn what the Omega-6 to Omega-3 essential fatty acid (EFA) ratio means to your health. Visit our Education section for comprehensive information. For quick comparisons read up about each of our meats and then check out their EFA ratios.
Check HERE for detailed fatty acid profiles on a wide variety of our meats. The nutrient density and diversity plus the perfect fatty acid profile of grass-fed meats is why we raise and market grass-fed meats and Omega-3 meats.
In November 2017, our USDA meat processor, Krehbiels Specialty Meats, was featured on a Wichita, Kansas television news broadcast. The video they produced does an excellent job of showing how complex the meat processing business can be, especially for very small plants.
Krehbiels is not like the huge meat processors that employ thousands of people and process thousands of head per day. The big outfits produce a narrow range of fresh meat cuts which they sell in bulk to meat brokers, grocery chains, and smaller specialty meat processors that make name-brand products. In comparison, Krehbiels does the same as the big outfits and the specialty plants but on a smaller scale to service their retail store, individuals, and businesses like ours.
An Actual Difference
Omega-3 pork was our third major step towards providing our customers with “perfect” nutrition. Starting way back in 1999 it was originally grass-fed meats, pastured chicken, and wild-caught pork and seafood. Over the years we were dissatisfied with the nutritional deficiencies in pastured chicken and wild-caught pork. That's why we created our Slanker Select Omega-3 chicken and Omega-3 pork. Optimizing human health is our primary focus.
These days perception is sold more often than reality. That puts those of us committed to doing the right thing at a disadvantage. So if you are eating for your health rather than for appearances, you need to read Phony Grass-Fed and Battling the Establishment. Then you'll better understand where we're coming from and why our Omega-3 meats are so special.

If your goal is to have ample leftovers, aim for 1½ pounds per person whatever the turkey’s size.
For example, to serve 8 people buy a 12-pound turkey.
For no leftovers, plan 1 pound per person whatever the turkey's size.
Slanker Select Omega-3 Turkeys Not Found in Health Food Stores
Omega-3 Turkeys are a Slanker Grass-Fed Meat exclusive. Our turkeys are the world's most nutritious turkeys because they are raised with a special feed and supplements that gives them a healthy essential fatty acid profile. They are fed almost the exact same diet as our famous Omega-3 Chicken which Dr. Oz reviewed in this 3-minute video from his television show. Then he conducted an on-the-air taste test in this video segment. In addition to healthy fats, our Omega-3 Turkeys are more nutrient diverse and dense with a zero glycemic index. There are no added flavors, honey, sugar, preservatives, or spices. Our exclusive Omega-3 Turkeys have all these checks in the box.
Never Administered Antibiotics
But far and away the most important check in the box is that they ate the same feed as our Dr. Oz recommended Omega-3 chickens. (Once again, see his comments on the importance of eating Omega-3 poultry HERE.) It's a special feed that gives our Omega-3 Turkeys their amazing EFA ratio of 2:1.
Our Pacific Ocean wild-caught seafood is of the finest quality available online. It is caught by commercial fishermen and processed by a major seafood company that distributes seafood nationwide to upscale retailers and restaurants. SGFM only carries the best wild-caught seafood.

For years we've had a supply issue when sourcing grass-fed goat here in the USA. That's why we now offer 100% grass-fed goat from Australia. Ranchers in the southern hemisphere have a long history of raising grass-fed stock and they are good at it.
All Slanker Grass-Fed and Omega-3 Meats are Beyond Organic. The meats are natural, no sugar, no added hormones, not fed antibiotics, non-GMO, gluten free, high Omega-3, free range, cage free, and humanely raised. What actually makes our meats the healthiest meats in the world and sets them apart from all others is that they are zero glycemic, nutrient dense and diverse, with Omega-6 to Omega-3 fatty acids balances of less than 2:1. These last three points impact health and disease way more than all of the other labels combined. It's why we say "Beyond Organic" because it's the actual chemistry of our meats that makes them so healthy. Read our eBook, The Real Diet of Man for a fuller understanding of food chemistry and the chemicals that cause chronic disease.
Goats are especially partial to leaves of trees and bushes. They do real well in arid regions. In Australia, feeds such as “starch-free” plant proteins, grains, cottonseed meal, and what-have-you, are not part of their diet. When goats are raised on grasses and leaves, which are the foundation foods for all animal life, they are definitely grass-fed and grass-finished.
For years we've had a supply issue when sourcing grass-fed lamb here in the USA. That's why we now offer 100% grass-fed lamb from New Zealand. Ranchers in the southern hemisphere have a long history of raising grass-fed stock and they are good at it.
