Buying meat in bulk is great on so many levels. There are so many benefits!

It saves you money, time, and energy. And, it brings peace of mind knowing that you always have food on hand in the freezer when you need it.

I am not just talking about buying huge quantities of meat like ½ and whole cows. 

Smaller boxed bundles of just 10-20 pounds are often a better option for today’s families. They fit in a standard sized freezer, have an affordable price point, and are a good way to try out buying in bulk (especially if you’re a first timer).

Here’s a quick list of reasons why buying in bulk is amazing and you should try out our new Beef Bundle Boxes!

1. Saves Money

When you buy meat in bulk, you will get a much better price per pound compared to buying singular cuts. These savings allow you access to a variety of cuts, including more premium cuts,  that you otherwise may not have splurged on or been able to afford.

2. Saves Time

Buying in bulk allows you to get all the meat you need for your family in one trip. It can even be delivered directly to your home, saving you the trip to the store!

With lots of meat on hand, you can also save time by preparing meals in large batches. This allows you to make several days of meals in advance. You can even freeze for a later date when you need a meal quickly or a break from cooking.

This means you will spend less time running errands and more time with those you love.

3. Healthier

Buying bulk 100% grass-fed pasture-raised meat direct from small farms means that you will always have the healthiest meat possible available to your family.

Having all that quality meat on hand will encourage you to cook at home more, which is of course healthier than eating out. But more importantly, cooking at home brings us closer together and ensures you and your family are eating well balanced, nutrient dense meals.

4. Better for the environment

Buying bulk meat cuts down on trips to the store and in turn cuts down on your gas/energy usage. 

It also cuts down on excess packaging. Individual cuts of meat in stores are often placed on styrofoam trays and wrapped in cellophane. This may extend the shelf life of the meat temporarily but is horrible for the environment in the long run. 


Got a craving? Need a quick meal? Unexpected dinner guests coming over? No worries! You have a freezer full of amazing meat, no need to even go to the store! Plus, ordering direct from the farm allows the extra convenience of getting your order delivered directly to your front door. 

6. Food security

Having bulk meat on hand gives us food security. In today’s world where food access is an increasing concern, you can feel safe knowing your food source is secure in your freezer at home. 

7.Know where your food comes from

Buying farm-direct meat allows you to know the farming practices. You can ensure that the meat you feed your family is 100% grass-fed, pasture-raised, humanely raised, and free from any antibiotics or GMOs. This peace of mind is invaluable. 

Helpful tips when buying bulk meat

Plan ahead for freezer space

The typical freezer above or below your refrigerator has about 3-5 cubic feet of space, which holds about 35 lbs of meat.

You might have 3-4 cubic feet of freezer space, but if it is filled with other frozen goods that means you may not have room for your order of bulk meat.

Being efficient with how you pack your freezer is essential. Using separate containers to organize items in your freezer can be a huge help.

If you are looking to get serious about ordering bulk I would suggest investing in a chest freezer, they are absolutely worth it!

Look for sales

Increase your bulk meat saving by also looking for sales. You can get great deals on amazing cuts of meat by looking at the right place at the right time…like right here at our Beef Bundle Specials!

Look for good quality

Finally, make sure you do your research before buying a bulk quantity of meat. It would be terrible to buy meat just to realize it is not the quality you thought it was. Any good farm will be transparent about their farming practices and be happy to answer any questions you have.

You can learn more about our farming practices here, and of course please feel free to reach out to us anytime if you have any questions!

The Truth About Cow Farts and Climate Change: Why Grassfed Cows are Different

Cows have long been blamed for their contribution to climate change, with many attributing this to their flatulence (AKA farts.) However, the reality is that cow farts are just one aspect of a much larger issue: methane emissions.
