Picture a box of delicious, tender, flavorful grass-fed beef delivered right to your door.
It’s not a dream. It’s a reality with ButcherBox!
And the best part… you can send boxes of awesome meat right to the door of family and friends as gifts!
Have a hard-to-shop for guy on your list? A foodie that would love flavorful cuts of meat? ButcherBox might just be the answer to your gift-giving challenges.
Founded by Mike Salguero, the company is striving to build a new kind of food community based on making grass-fed beef available on a wider scale, provide a convenient experience, and align Americans back with nature.
Salguero was first introduced to 100% grass-fed beef through a local farmer who sold ¼ and ½ shares of cattle. Hooked after his first taste, he preferred the more natural flavor and liked the health benefits that came from grass-fed versus grain-fed beef.
He soon discovered a very small percentage of the beef produced in the United States is one hundred percent grass-fed, and largely inaccessible to many parts ofhte country.
He set about to change that.
By partnering with a group of small farms, ButcherBox is able to purchase in large quantities and pass the savings along to its customers.
The products are less expensive than similar cuts at grocery stores and ButcherBox focuses on bringing top quality right to your door.
Admittedly, I was a little dubious about having meat delivered to my home, but I gave it whirl.
The box came packed in dry ice (which is really cool – pun intended), packed inside an insulated bag. The cuts of meat are flash frozen in individual packages.
When I opened the box, the bag actually had frost on it, so no worries about the meat thawing during delivery. It was frozen solid.
The box I received had a mix of pork and beef. It included bacon, sirloin tips, top sirloin, pork chops and ground beef bricks as well a recipe card and welcome letter.
Impressed with the packaging, I soon found myself equally impressed with the meat.
The first thing we cooked was the bacon. Crispy, flavorful and so good, it got a thumbs-up from the breakfast-eaters at my house.
The pork chops were quite possibly the very best, moistest, most flavorful pork chops I’ve ever had.
The beef was full of rich, strong flavor.
ButcherBox starts at $129/month and comes with 7-10 lbs of meat. According to the website, it works out about $6.50/meal and shipping is free to the contiguous 48 states!
Shoppers can “beef” up boxes by selecting additional products like ribeye.
Right now, four box options are available including all beef, mixed box, beef and chicken, or beef and pork.
If you are looking for a fabulous gift for someone hard to shop for (or yourself) think about ordering from ButcherBox. Your taste buds will thank you.
