Moink Box 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.
