For example, if someone offers to pay you $0.07 for one hour of work, you would immediately decline. Meanwhile, if someone offers to pay you $7,000 for one hour of work, you would immediately accept. On extreme ends of the spectrum, it is easy to know if a task is worth your time.

Their standards as a company are also unique; they strive for building relationships with farmers that treat their employees as part of a team: </p> <blockquote style="margin-left: 50px;"><p>“ButcherBox strives for excellence in every area, and that includes working with the best possible meat processing facilities. We work with companies and farmers that are dedicated to doing the right thing – never cutting corners, and always looking for ways to improve.</p> <p>Our partners' operating methods are inspired by Dr. Temple Grandin, a member of the Humane Farm Animal Care Program's scientific committee. Their facilities are routinely inspected and approved by the USDA or a comparable agency.</p> <p>We also believe in fair labor practices. In line with our family and community values, we seek partners who treat their employees as part of a team.”</p></blockquote> <p>There is no way to substitute for high standards when quality of meat is directly influenced by how the animal lived. Sourcing meat from farms that care about the well being of the animals is clearly at the top of ButcherBox’s priority list, and is something you can rest assured in. </p> </section> <hr class="divider-50 divider-medium mx-auto"> <section> <section id="section3"> <h2>Benefits of ButcherBox</h2> <h3>Taste</h3> <p>Now when it comes to taste, I can honestly say ButcherBox meats are off the charts! So much so that even my kids have made comments. Not many kids can notice, or even appreciate a really good burger, but mine have become huge fans of ButcherBox burgers.</p> <h3>Money saved</h3> <p>When I first looked into ButcherBox the idea of paying upwards of $270 for meat per month seemed absolutely out of the question. Being on a budget, that number just did not seem feasible. After months of being on the fence I decided to do some exploring and figure out exactly what we were spending on meat each month, and how many stores I was going to get it. Much to my surprise we were spending WAY more on the meat itself, and I was going to at least three stores to get what we needed. So, ordering from ButcherBox not only saved me money, but also time, which leads me to my next point…</p> <h3>Time saved</h3> <p>As a busy mom with a full time job, anything that saves me time is a huge plus. ButcherBox is just as much about quality as it is convenience. For me, buying high-quality meat means I have to shop at multiple stores. The time it takes to figure out which store I have to go to for what, driving to each store, and shopping is a huge time suck! With ButcherBox I can literally sit in my pajamas and choose what meat I want for the month, knowing it will be shipped to my door on time---with the click of a button.</p> </section> <hr class="divider-50 divider-medium mx-auto"> <section> <section id="section4"> <h2>How expensive is ButcherBox?</h2> <p>ButcherBox offers multiple options to fit different budgets. </p> <p>If you’re anything like me, $140 to $270 a month on meat alone can be hard to wrap your head around.

They also have a detailed rating scale for the quality of the meat they sell which I love, however, their meat prices are high and not everything is available in organic, grass-fed or free range. </p> <ul> <li>Ground Beef: <i>$6.99 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>Organic Grass-fed</li> </ul></li> <li>Chuck Roast: <i>$5.99 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>Step 4 Pasture Centered (not organic or grass-fed)</li> </ul></li> <li>NY Strip Steak: <i>$19.99 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>Step 4 Pasture Centered (not organic or grass-fed)</li> </ul></li> <li>Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts: <i>$7.99 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>Step 3 Organic (enhanced outdoor access)</li> </ul></li> <li>Whole Chicken: <i>$3.99 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>Step 3 Organic (enhanced outdoor access)</li> </ul></li> <li>Chicken Drumsticks: <i>$4.49 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>Organic (not free range)</li> </ul></li> <li>Pork Tenderloin: <i>$14.99 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>Step 1 (no cages, no crates, no crowding)</li> </ul></li> <li>Pork Chops: <i>$7.99 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>Step 1 (no cages, no crates, no crowding)</li> </ul></li> <li>Ground Pork: Not Available</li> </ul> <h3>Safeway</h3> <p>I was really surprised to find that safeway (comparable to a Kroger or Savemart) had so many grass-fed and organic options, but the prices were just as high as Whole Foods in most cases and I had no idea where the meat came from. </p> <ul> <li>Ground Beef: <i>$6.99 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>100% natural and grass-fed</li> </ul></li> <li>Chuck Roast: <i>$5.99 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>USDA Choice conventionally farmed</li> </ul></li> <li>NY Strip Steak: <i>$19.99 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>Organic Grass-fed</li> </ul></li> <li>Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast: <i>$8.99 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>Organic Free Range</li> </ul></li> <li>Whole Chicken: <i>$2.99 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>Organic Free Range</li> </ul></li> <li>Chicken Drumsticks: <i>$2.99 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>Organic Free Range</li> </ul></li> <li>Pork Tenderloin: <i>$7.99 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>100% natural vegetarian fed</li> </ul></li> <li>Pork Chops: <i>$5.99 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>100% natural vegetarian fed</li> </ul></li> <li>Ground Pork: <i>$5.99 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>100% natural</li> </ul></li> </ul> <h3>Trader Joe’s</h3> <p>Trader Joe’s is great for a lot of things, but their selection of meat is limited at best and most of what is available is conventionally farmed. </p> <ul> <li>Ground Beef: <i>$5.99 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>Organic and 100% grass-fed</li> </ul></li> <li>Chuck Roast: Unfortunately Trader Joes didn’t offer much in the way of large cuts of beef.</li> <li>NY Strip Steak: <i>$14.99 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>USDA choice, not organic or grass-fed</li> </ul></li> <li>Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast: <i>$5.99 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>Organic and Free Range</li> </ul></li> <li>Whole Chicken: <i>$1.49 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>Conventionally farmed</li> </ul></li> <li>Chicken Drumsticks: <i>$1.99 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>Organic and Free Range</li> </ul></li> <li>Pork Tenderloin: <i>$5.49 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>Crate Free</li> </ul></li> <li>Pork Chops: <i>$6.49 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>Crate Free</li> </ul></li> <li>Ground Pork: <i>$4.69 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>Crate Free</li> </ul></li> </ul> <h3>ButcherBox</h3> <p>Not all of these items are available as individual add-ons so we can’t compare dollar for dollar on everything, but here are a few to give you an idea of how they match up. </p> <ul> <li>Ground Beef: <i>$7.50 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>100% Grass-fed Grass-finished</li> </ul></li> <li>Chuck Roast: <i>$8.44 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>100% Grass-fed Grass-finished</li> </ul></li> <li>NY Strip Steak: <i>$17.60 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>100% Grass-fed Grass-finished</li> </ul></li> <li>Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast: <i>$8.00 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>Free-Range, USDA Certified Organic</li> </ul></li> <li>Pork Tenderloin: <i>$12.00 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>Heritage Breed</li> </ul></li> <li>Pork Chops: <i>$7.00 per pound</i></li> <ul> <li>Heritage Breed</li> </ul></li> </ul> <p>As you can see from the above comparison many of the options out there are comparable to the cost of ButcherBox, but the difference really lies in the time you’ll save having meat shipped to your door rather than driving all over town. Regardless of whether you are buying meat from the grocery store, or using a supplier like ButcherBox, the fact of the matter is high quality meat isn’t cheap! But if quality is important to you, there are ways to make it work for you and your finances. </p> <h3>So, What If I’m On A Budget?</h3> <picture class="lazy-load"> <source data-srcset="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/blog-content/butcher-box-bacon-close-up-0256.webp" type="image/webp"> <source data-srcset="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/blog-content/butcher-box-bacon-close-up-0256.jp2" type="image/jpf"> <source data-srcset="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/blog-content/butcher-box-bacon-close-up-0256.jpg"> <img src="https://d1ghrtdbdq2gkr.cloudfront.net/blog-content/butcher-box-bacon-close-up-LR-0256.jpg" class="img-fluid" alt="butcher-box-bacon"> </picture> <p>As a family of five, <a target="_blank" href="https://www.warriormade.com/content/diet/keto-on-a-budget/" rel="noreferrer">budgeting</a> our groceries is an absolute must. </p> <p>In order to make ButcherBox fit our budget I followed some simple strategies to help make it more affordable and get the most for my money:</p> <ol> <li align="justify"><b>Custom Box:</b> Choose a custom box and pick cuts of meat that can go a long way. For instance, a whole chicken, large cuts of beef, pork butt etc. You pay a little more, $149 vs. $129, but you get an additional cut of meat (6 cuts) vs. (5 cuts in the classic), and you have the freedom to choose what cuts you want. </li> <li align="justify"><b>Member deals and specials:</b> As a member, be sure to check your emails and add on as many of the member deals as possible. As promotions (such as Bacon and Ground Beef <i>for Life</i>) roll around, you can purchase them as a member for a <i>one-time</i> fee, and then have them in your box forever! <ul> <li align="justify"><i>if you have purchased a For Life offer, and another one rolls around, you can buy that one as well. I have bought Bacon, Wings and Ground Beef for LIFE. The one-time cost pays for itself really quickly, and makes it super worth it.</i></li> </ul> </li> <li align="justify"><b>Discount codes:</b> ButcherBox offers $30 off if you refer a friend which you can apply to your order.
