ButcherBox Reviews - Meat Quality

I love this ButcherBox is committed to providing quality meat sourced from ethically raised animals. I feel good feeding myself and my family meat from animals that have lived a good life and been able to live as nature intended.

Here a little about the quality of their meats:

Beef: 

100% grass-fed, grass-finished beef with no antibiotics or hormones. The cows were bred to live their entire lives on a pasture.

Chicken: 

Pasture, free range and organic. All chickens are certified cruelty-free, which means the chickens have access to the outdoors, shelter, and are fed a 100% organic vegetarian diet.

Pig:

 A heritage breed without antibiotics or hormones. Pigs are raised on pasture or to standards that meet open-bedded barn farming.

What does Grass-Finished mean?

Grass-fed is very different from grass-finished. Store-bought “grass-fed” meat does not mean that the animals were raised on a grass-fed diet. Unfortunately, grass-fed means that the cows started out grass-fed, but were then grain-fed for the rest of their lives in a feedlot. High-quality store-bought beef should be labelled as grass-fed, grain-finished beef.

97% of all beef sold in the United States comes from cows that have been sent to a feedlot and fed a grain diet. What the animal eats translates into what is in its meat. Wouldn't you rather eat meat from animals that have a natural diet and do not contain hormones?

ButcherBox Review: Flavour Quality

ButcherBox not only has the highest quality meat that is humanely and naturally raised, but it is the MOST DELICIOUS beef, chicken and pork I have ever tasted!

Chicken tastes much more like chicken. The meat is full of umami flavour. The pork is juicy and tasty. You have never tasted such good meat. ButcherBox sources from farms that properly raise animals, feeding them natural food that they consume throughout their lives. You can really feel the difference!

ButcherBox review: cost

ButcherBox Reviews: Convenience and Shipping

I have 3 small children. Anything that can save me time, I'm all for it. What's better than having ButcherBox deliver meat right to my door for free? Now I just have to buy my products and the basics of my pantry. Much easier.

My box is delivered every 4 weeks. You can choose to have it delivered every 2, 4, 6 or 8 weeks. You receive an email a few days before your order ships, so you can make adjustments to your box this month if needed, or change your delivery date if you're out of town. If you don't make any changes, it will send you the same box you ordered before.

The meat is shipped frozen. in an isothermal and ecological box filled with a specific amount of dry ice carefully calculated according to its geographical location. All packaging materials are biodegradable or recyclable. Best part? Delivery is always free!

Insider tip: My grandkids love to play with dry ice! Let's put it in a container of water and pretend science!

What should I order each month?

We are a family of 5. I receive the Large Custom Box, which allows you to choose 12 cuts of meat. I prefer to be able to choose the meat I receive, but you can also choose to get an organised box.

Every month I order:

8 whole chickens that I break up myself, then use the carcasses to make homemade bone broth (I get the most bang for my buck!)

2 pounds ground beef

2 pounds of ground pork

1 order of pork chops (maybe my favourite!)

1 “fun meat” I want to make this month like pork tenderloin, tri-tip, ribs, steaks (rib eye is my favorite's!), beef stew, roast beef, or pork tenderloin.

I also get free bacon for life (1 pack), free beef for life (2 pounds), and free wings for life (3 pounds) on every order, all FREE!

Insider Tip: 

When ButcherBox runs a lifetime offer, simply add it to your box for a one-time fee (usually less than $50 that you only pay once). It is amortised in 2 shipments, but you will have it for free in your shipments as long as you are subscribed to ButcherBox. Always check the member offers each month to see what they offer!

ButcherBox Review: Is It Worth It?

ButcherBox is 100% worth it!

This is where I buy all my meat. When I order from ButcherBox, I save money, time, and it's better for animals and the planet. ButcherBox prices really end up being comparable to what you'd spend in the store, especially from a convenience and quality perspective.
