OMG you guys I am obsessed with Butcher Box! When I first began eating clean I noticed that the organic meats at my local grocery store were pretty pricey! So I found myself waiting for a sale then stocking up, like hardcore stocking up! Then I learned that not only do you want organic meats but you also want to be buying, grass-fed, grass-finished, grain-free, cage-free, etc. Which was even more expensive than just good ole organic! When I heard about Butcher Box I place an order immediately! I love the fact that I don’t have to think about it at all! I can trust that these are the highest quality meats available and they are delivered right to my door! I also love the fact that you can customize your box. I have been getting the XL Chicken, Beef, & Pork box every other month. But you can get whatever you want! Just chicken, just beef, just beef and pork, or just chicken and beef, not to mention all the amazing add ons.
So why do you need to be buying grass-fed beef, or free range organic chicken, and heritage breed pork?
Well, lets start with the beef.
Beef from Butcher Box 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. We exclusively source from ranchers who humanely raise their animals and don’t interfere with their natural diet.
Next, the chicken.
Butcher Box sources both free range organic chicken and pasture raised chicken. Our pastured chickens spend their entire lives foraging in the field. Leaner, more flavorful birds, they benefit from a slow, moist cooking environment. All of our chicken is certified humane meaning that chickens have access to the outdoors and to shelter, are naturally fed, have plenty of room to move and do what chickens naturally do (and interact with other chickens) and that stress at each stage of life is minimized.
Lastly, the pork.
Butcher Box pork is heritage breed and free of antibiotics and hormones, and never fed ractopamine – a growth promotant frequently administered to pork. We 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. Our pork is different. It is a rich color and beautifully marbled.
When you ordered from Butcher Box you will have the peace of mind that you are getting the highest quality meats available delivered right to your door!
