They sent me a box to try a few weeks ago, and here are my thoughts:
** I generally grocery shop by a meal plan each week and don’t stock up on a lot of other meats. I’m frugal in nature and get sticker shock at the grocery store when I have considered stocking up on grass-fed and organic meats on top of our regular groceries. As a result, I rarely ever buy anything organic or plant-based. With a renewed decision to feed my family better quality foods this year when I can, I have found that getting a box in the mail with a variety of options at once allows me to stock my freezer with high-quality meats I wouldn’t usually buy at the grocery store. Something about the price of the subscription being separate from my regular grocery trip makes it feel more manageable. That might sound crazy to some, but it’s how my brain works.
** I had also noticed that when I didn’t have extra meat in the freezer (I do try to keep browned ground beef in the freezer), I made special trips to the grocery store if our week changed, and I needed to cook more than I had originally planned. With four kids, it isn’t convenient to run to the grocery store in the middle of the day, and I generally ended up going in for one or two items and left with a buggy full.
** I was even a little concerned that the grass-fed beef would taste weird and I wouldn’t like it, but it doesn’t. I am super picky, much like a toddler.
** I appreciate the fact that I can curate my box based on the exact cuts of meat my family enjoys and personalize my subscription. Many subscriptions send you a box full of stuff without giving the customer an option to choose exactly what they want.
** It comes in the mail. I don’t have to think about it or remember to make a separate trip to a local butcher. I’m a mom of four, so this is a huge positive for me. I also don’t currently have the freezer space to buy 1/4 of a cow, so the amount in the box is manageable, and it is delivered to my front porch.
