Disclaimer: I received these products for free in exchange for my review and honest opinion
First off, I have to say that I have been buying all my meats from my local stores and after receiving The ButcherBox with the Beef and Pork, I can honestly say that these meats are the best tasting meats I have ever cooked. The taste of freshness of real Grass Fed meats has surpassed my expectations , I know now that the store bought meats I have been buying cannot touch the ButcherBox meats with their animals being Grass Fed, it does make a difference with how they taste, compared to store bought meats.
Now let me tell you what my Husband has to say about The ButcherBox, he stated his opinion since he had been raised doing the work of preparing beef and pork for slaughter and retail sales. He was not too familiar with the term Grass Fed Cattle and Pigs due to the fact that all the feeding processes were done in Feed Lots, the Grades of 30, 60 and 90 day Prep. After he had eaten the ButcherBox Beef and Pork meats , he was impressed with the taste of these meats and the marble content of them. He was surprised and very happy with the taste of these meats.
Their beef is 100% grass-fed and grass-finished and never given antibiotics or hormones. All the cattle are humanely raised and live their entire life on pasture. Cattle eat their natural diet of grass, and may receive other grasses like silage and hay when weather conditions prevent grazing. They exclusively source from ranchers who humanely raise their animals and don’t interfere with their natural diet.
Their pork is heritage breed and free of antibiotics and hormones, and never feed ractopamine – a growth promotant frequently administered to pork. They source predominantly pork with Duroc, Berkshire and Red Wattle genetics. These are pigs that have not had the flavor bred out of them. Over the last generation or so, in pursuit of more rapid weight gain, pig breeders cut out the marbling that gives pork its flavor, resulting in dry, bland product. Their pork is different. It is a rich color and beautifully marbled. The pork is either pastured or meets the following standards: raised in open barns with space to engage in natural behaviours and given bedding. No tail docking or other physical alterations are allowed.
Let me tell you a little on how The ButcherBox was formed, The founder Mike Salguero was first introduced to 100% grass-fed beef through a local farmer who sold ¼ and ½ shares of cattle. After trying it, he was instantly hooked. He preferred the more natural taste and was thrilled to discover the many health advantages grass-fed beef has over ordinary grain-fed beef. So his question became, “why isn’t everyone eating this?” After doing some research, he discovered that not everyone has access to grass-fed beef, and even if people have access, their selection is often limited to just ground beef. This helps explain why just 1% of the total beef consumed in the United States is 100% grass-fed. Our goal is to make grass-fed beef more accessible than ever before.
The ButcherBox meat is flash frozen at the peak of freshness and individually packaged. All of their boxes are filled with a specific amount of dry ice that’s carefully calculated based on your geographic location. Your box will arrive 1 – 4 days after shipping and you’ll receive a tracking # the night your box ships. They ship Monday – Wednesday for arrival by Friday in most cases, and the meat can stay fresh on your doorstep for up to 12 hours! Butcher Box starts at $129.00/Month and comes with 8-11 lbs of meat, which is enough for at least 20 individual meals (at a 6oz portion size). The price works out to less than $6.00/meal and shipping is free to the contiguous 48 states! You can also beef up your box by selecting add-ons like ground beef, bacon, and ribeye. Customize your box to fit your families appetite! I highly recommend The ButcherBox to any family that wants Grass Fed meats that taste like meats use too.
