Do yourself a favor and get this box! We love the meat that we receive monthly and the flexibility of the subscription makes it easy to adjust to our schedules.
I had the beef subscription for almost a year before making the change to assorted. IDK why I was afraid I wouldn't like what they sent; it has been AMAZING! I love the quality, the variety, and the reliability. I get a few packages of meats I can use in just about anything (like ground beef), a package of something I would consider special (steaks or pork chops), and then poultry and/or fish that it always a wonderful addition. I genuinely feel good about buying my meat from this ranch-- they're very transparent, friendly, passionate about the environment, and dedicated to animal welfare. I love seeing their videos on facebook! I use the small box to feed 2.5 people and supplement just a few things here and there (like ordering their whole chickens and ground pork). It's the perfect size for our small family. Oh, and this last month I received Italian sausage which I would never have ordered on my own... but it was DELICIOUS and not at all like the kind I grew up with. It's really fun trying new meats instead of sticking to the same old stuff every month!
Love our meat box! Everything tastes fantastic (we absolutely LOVE the pork chops, omg) and can't wait to try the steaks. You can tell the difference in quality immediately, and the fat/protein content seems much higher so no need to worry about getting enough to eat, the portions are very filling. Would be very excited to have some bacon at some point, or will order extra when it's available--we are thrilled to finally stop buying the mass produced factory stuff from the store and rely on CPM for all of our meat. The smallest box is the perfect monthly size for us as a couple (with no kids) who are trying to keep our meat consumption moderate (but high quality and better for the environment) and plan more meals around veggies. The box inspired us to look for a local CSA share as well, so we're truly thankful for the folks who put so much dedication into their ranching practices and work hard to have this available for us.
Great selection, all the meat tastes great! Really enjoyed the burgers and Denver steak (so tender)
I went to see the farm with my great friend Susan. All of the animals were healthy and happy. All the products are delicious and fresh. The best ever!!
