THE BUTCHERS - I'm stunned !!

read this ad:

it advertises that the butchers is "100% certified organic." 100% is all. not some. all.

THE BUTCHERS - I'm stunned !!

i finally got a hold of eddie at acadian beef, who is one of the suppliers of the butcher, as featured

eddie told me:
- he does NOT supply organic meat to the butcher
- he instead sells 'naturally raised' which he told me means 'no antibiotics and they eat corn' BUT are still 'intensively farmed' (read factory farmed)
- he himself buys meat from suppliers and cannot say exactly where or which farms the meat comes from.

so there you go. the butchers advertises and charges for 100% certified organic meat from a local farmer, but you're instead you're getting factory farmed meat from who knows where, just like you would at the grocery store, except it doesnt have antibiotics and gets to eat corn.

i've been getting responses from <> who assures me that everyone is getting refunds. try him

THE BUTCHERS - I'm stunned !!

is there anyone who still hasn't received a refund but wants one?

THE BUTCHERS - I'm stunned !!

there is a very mysterious note on their website now:

"We have been asked by many people why we continue to do these voucher deals. We agreed to do a specific # of deals and signed contracts so we are under contractual obligation. Once these contracts have been fulfilled we will no longer take part in these vouchers deals." (

THE BUTCHERS - I'm stunned !!

i got a full refund for 7 vouchers (including a used one) from webpiggy cuz i was so unhappy with the service and the product. i'm really impressed with them - i was worried id be stuck with a bunch of coupons id be scared to use! i bet the change is cuz of the butchers.

Deal: $50 for $150 of Organic Meats at The Butchers

"An exceptional level of customer service that has become their trademark" lol

THE BUTCHERS - I'm stunned !!

that's right! AND, the headline clearly states that it's for everything they sell, not just meat (which they've been refusing to honour as well): "$50 for $150 worth of the highest quality organic and naturally raised meat, hot prepared foods, organic produce and more from The Butchers."

i have the original email, so i took a screenshot if anyone wants to print it out and show them.
