SLANTSHACK JERKY Tasting this Sunday!

SLANTSHACK: 100% grass-fed beef jerky. YUM!
Join us  this Sunday, March 11 from 3-5PM as we welcome back  SlantShack Jerky to the Farmacy. Meet the makers and enjoy complimentary samples of their delicious, 100% grass fed beef jerky. And yes, we will probably be throwing around the word "jerk" a lot on Sunday, so excuse us in advance. (soda jerks, beef jerky, you get the picture). Read on for more information about this artisanal company...

Who is SlantShack?
SlantShack Jerky is a small, artisanal company offering 100% grass-fed beef jerky made from all-natural ingredients. Dedicated to flavor, they've developed a series of unique marinades, spice rubs and glazes to create an unprecedented jerky taste experience. Their  product is crafted by the good people at Vermont Highland Cattle Company in Orleans, VT, and because they make it to order, it's much more tender than your average store-bought brand. Since SlantShack opened for business in 2008, they've been named one of the Top Ten Jerkies in America by Maxim, given 5 stars by BestBeefJerky.org, featured in The Atlantic, Thrillist, Tasting Table, and The Village Voice, and generally adored by customers throughout the land. We started carrying their jerky this month and can't keep it on the shelves. 

A little back story (we love a good story) 
SlantShack Jerky was born from nine college degrees, a crooked roof, a dream, and a sprinkling of destiny. Or maybe it was at a family dinner in North Jersey where dehydrated meat was the main attraction. Or if you want to go way back, it began in the heart of a 12-year-old boy wishing for an unlimited supply of his favorite snack—Founder Joshua Kace has had a lifelong passion for meat treats. Add an empty stomach, a slightly slanted post-college apartment, a group of under-employed friends, and some late-night kitchen experimentation, and you have the makings of a beef jerky revolution. After months of midnight dehydrating marathons and rave reviews from early taste-testers, Josh and friends realized they might be on to more than just a hunger-satisfying hobby, and decided to share their jerky innovations with the meat-loving masses…

Stop by the Brooklyn Farmacy & Soda Fountain this Sunday, March 11th from 3-5 PM to meet the makers and sample up some wicked good Jerky. See you at the Farm!
