SNAKE RIVER FARMS

Snake River Farms is part of a company that has been in business since the 1960's. Their goal of producing the highest quality beef in the United States is backed up by a business model which involves them in all processes of the beef lifecycle: from feeding and nutrition to marketing and packaging. This holistic approach makes Snake River Farms a full ranch to table operation and differentiates them from larger steak delivery companies.

Snake River Farms steaks are wet aged, which is said to produce a juicier, more tender piece of meat. They do this with both USDA Prime and American Wagyu cuts of beef. Snake River Farm's American Wagyu, beef that grades higher than USDA Prime, uses the Japanese Beef Marbling Standard grading scale (1 to 12 with 12 being the best) and is designated at two levels. The Black level grades at 6 or higher and their Gold level grades at 9 or higher on the Japanese Beef Marbling Standard. For comparison, USDA Prime beef reaches 4 to 5 on the Japanese scale.

The website for Snake River Farms is both user friendly and appealing. Shoppers looking for a gift option will uncover a decent selection at Snake River Farms. From popular and budget, friendly packages to premium options and business gifts, there is something for everyone. Also, custom gifting options are available to customers ordering 5 or more gifts. Along with easily accessible product categories, customers will find cooking guides and recipes that create an all-around positive shopping experience.

Snake River Farms is very competitive regarding price, and in many cases less expensive, when compared to other reviewed companies, both for their American Wagyu and USDA Prime beef. Their shipping charges are competitive as well, ranging from $9.99 for standard shipping up to $79.99 for overnight.

No matter the shipping preference, recipients can expect every cut of meat to arrive safely in an insulated cooler, packed with dry ice to maintain an appropriate shipping environment. All items are sent frozen and will arrive frozen, partially thawed, or chilled. Customer service representatives are available on weekdays to assist in fixing any issues with the quality, condition, or accuracy of products received.

Whether you're shopping for friends or family their gift box options are a great present. From quality and price to selection and shopping experience, Snake River Farms is near the top. And another reason to choose Snake River Farms is the opportunity to enjoy high-grade Wagyu beef, which is available at a small handful of websites. Snake River Farms is a great option for all your steak delivery needs.

HARRY & DAVID

You may already be familiar with Harry & David as prime source of gifts for all occasions. Especially around the holidays, you might have had some of their famous Moose Munch or received a shipment of seasonal fruit. But, did you know that their partnership with Stock Yards allows you to order top-quality beef, aged for 21-30 days, for yourself or for your gift-giving needs?

Harry & David's is part of a larger brand family that gives customers access to a wide range of products, from flowers to chocolate and much more. That also lets you take advantage of an exceptional guarantee across all of their partner companies: love what you receive, or get a replacement or refund, no questions asked.

So, what mouth-watering goodness can you find with Harry & David? Look under the Stock Yards Steaks tab and you'll see a total of 30 items ranging from New York Strip Steak to Chateaubriand Tenderloin Roast and much more. Is surf and turf more your style? They've got that too. You'll also find options for extras: look for the button that says "Add Something Special" to add in wine, savory finishing butters, seasonings, and other items that can enhance your Steak or Seafood choice.

Unlike most of the Steak retailers in our review, Harry & David takes gift-giving to a new level by offering monthly subscription clubs: Stock Yards Club and Steakhouse Club. Yes, you read that right: a club for MEAT! Now, as you might expect, these clubs don't come cheap. Both offer the option to have monthly deliveries for 3, 6, or 12 months, and you can choose the month that your membership begins - either the current month or one of the following two months.

The Steakhouse option ranges from $349.99 (three-month) to $1,299.99 (12-month) and features USDA Prime and USDA Choice cuts of "steakhouse-quality steaks, chops, and more". Previous selections include four 10-ounce filet mignon, rack of lamb, and spiral sliced ham. If you'd prefer to spend a little less, the Stock Yards Club retails for $199.99 to $749.99 and includes many of the meat selections from the premium club, along with some lower-cost options like steak burgers and pork roast. Club prices do not include shipping fees of $9.99 per delivery.

While there is a Celebrations Passport program that allows shoppers to get free shipping and other perks for a year, all for a fee of $29.99, be aware that the shipping discount would only apply to your a la carte order, not to either of the Steak clubs. But, if you're planning on ordering several gifts over the course of 12 months - flowers for Mother's Day, chocolates for Valentine's Day, popcorn for Christmas, and so on - you should decide if the Passport membership might be worth the investment.

Overall, Harry & David is a solid choice for Steak, and their two membership clubs give them an advantage over some of their competitors.
