About Moink Box
Moink was founded and is owned by farmers. They connect ethically-conscious meat eaters with small farms providing humanely raised and ethically sourced meats. The farmers saw the challenges that they had getting their meats into the hands of consumers that wanted it and the challenges that consumers had in finding ethically raised meats.
An additional part of the mission of  connecting farm to consumer is to take a stand against corporate giants that are taking over the food system. Moink is very specific in their sourcing and raising of animals and through their boxes they bring together multiple farms with different specialties to deliver the meat to your door.

Products and Ingredients:

All of Moink’s products are humanely raised and ethically sourced.
  • The fish is wild-caught with sustainable practices in Alaska.
  • The beef and lamb are both grass-fed and grass-finished.
  • Their beef, lamb, chickens and pork are raised outdoors on pasture.
  • Most of the animals spend their entire life on the same farm with the same farmers.
  • All meat is antibiotic free, without growth hormones.
  • No GMO grains are fed to the animals.
  • There is no sugar in the bacon or breakfast sausage making (paleo friendly)
  • There are no nitrites or nitrates in the products.
  • They do not treat the product in order to alter the color and there are no solutions added to the chicken.

How Does it Work?

First, you select one of the four box options: Beef & Chicken, Beef, Chicken & Salmon, Beef, Pork & Chicken or Beef, Lamb & Chicken. Then you can swap out cuts of meat you don’t want and customize your box. You will find out what is included in your box 10 days before the ship date. Moink ships boxes every 3,4 or 6 weeks but you can also just order once or twice.
You can also skip an order. You will be charged the Friday before your order ships. Orders always ship on Tuesdays. You will get a tracking number.
Moink ships to the lower 48 states. Each box contains 13r-16 lbs of meat.

Cost and Price Plans:

You must purchase a box, you may not select individual items. Each box is $159.00. They contain 13-16 lbs of meat which is about $4.50 per serving. Shipping is included.

Online reviews/Complaints:

Customers rave about the product. Some say the meat is the best they have ever had. The timeliness, flexibility of ordering, user-friendly ordering were all positives. The variety of products and quality were also noted to be big positives. Especially the quality, all customers just love the quality.
They said that the packages arrived in a timely manner and were cold. Others mentioned that it was a joy to support small farmers. One customer felt that the cost was high - but also recognized that with this level of quality that is expected. Price would also depend on what the cost of ethically-raised meat is in your particular area.

Competitors and Alternatives:

Moink Box vs Butcher Box
Butcher Box is not owned by farmers but does have a similar intention of connecting ethically-raised meat directly to consumers. Their beef is 100% grass-fed, their chicken is free range and organic and they have heritage breed pork. They have a curated box with 8-11 pounds of meat for $129 (free shipping) or a more comparable box (to Moink) of 12-16 pounds of meat for $149 (free shipping and customizable). Moink Box costs $159 for 13-16 pounds of meat.
There is a subscription with Butcher Box but you can cancel at any time before your next order.
While they are similar products, Moink seems to be more connected to their product because they are farmers and began their business with other farmers. It's clear that they have a sense of commitment to the welfare of the animals and a mission to improve the food to table process. Moink box also has specific options for each box which you can later customize. Moink Box does offer more seafood options than Butcher Box does.
You can order Butcher Box at
Another interesting option is available from Crowd Cow, a company that auctions of portions of an entire cow.  They also offer the highest standard of Beef and work with small ranchers to get their products directly into the hands of consumers.

Really bad

We ordered several ribeye's, a couple NY strips, hamburger and a sausage. Meat arrived frozen.
Ribeye appearance - first of all they didn't even look like ribeye cuts. I showed pictures to several family members and they said "You got ripped off." None of them looked alike, they just looked like random cuts of meat.

Taste - Tough and tough. No matter how cooked them they were as tough as nails.
NY Strips - same thing. Not sure what we got but it wasn't NY Strips. Ended up chopping them up and using them in bean chili.

Hamburger - rancid. Thawed them out in the fridge and the next day when we opened the package it was apparent these weren't processed and packaged properly.

Breakfast Sausage - was ok but nothing impressive. If I was served this at a cafe for breakfast I would be ok with it. Not much seasoning.

For the price we paid I wasn't happy with our order. Didn't bother trying to get a refund or contacting them, just coughed it up as a lesson learned.

My wife tried this and every meat item was tough and tasteless. Do they give refunds?

Leaky Packaging, Spoiled Meat, HORRIBLE Customer Service

Unfortunately, I had a terrible experience with the quality of the packaging that caused the meat that I ordered to be poorly sealed and spoiled upon arrival. The company's customer service offensively made excuses for the poor quality and rudely suggested that I no longer shop with them. Instead of attempting to win back my patronage to the company, this representative refunded me with an invitation to leave.

the same thing happened to me - december 2019. Customer service does not offer any help regarding issues on your order. Instead, you'll receive passive-aggressive responses and be left with a bad taste in your mouth.

Hate the packaging. The meat seems good, but having to thaw it in bowls that fill with blood in the fridge is ridiculous.

How do you know if the bone came from another country?

Disappointed with first order

Can not tell you how disappointed I am with my first order. All the chicken in my order had a pack date of June or August of 2018. That’s 7-9 months ago. Are you kidding me! Recommended length of of time in freezer is no more then 9 months. This is unexceptionable! I was expecting meat that was frozen maybe 2 months not 7-9!
Could not find a packing date on the salmon so who knows!
