Benefits of Buying Meat in Bulk and Locally

If you haven’t been buying meat in bulk already, now is a great time to start. Purchasing meat in bulk is both convenient and cost effective, but it also offers other benefits!

  • Saves Money: As with nearly any food or product, when you buy in bulk, you save money. Grocery stores, butchers and farmers themselves tend to offer major discounts when you stock up on multiple pounds of meat. Plus, it affords you the opportunity to make bigger meals to portion out for pre-made or freezer meals, like pulled pork, chili, stews and more.
  • Fewer Trips to the Store: The fewer trips you have to make to the store, the better! Take one more thing off your “to-do” list when you buy in bulk and never have to second guess what’s at home.
  • Be Kinder to the Environment: Fewer trips to the store means using less gas, but it also helps cut down on packaging and waste. Store bought meat often comes packaged in styrofoam trays and plastic wrap, which might help preserve and store your meat temporarily, but is not good for the environment in the long run. When you buy in bulk, you’ll use less packaging and can pre-portion your meat in sizes you’re most likely to use.
  • Always Have Meat on Hand: Have you ever had a burger craving and realized that there’s no meat in your fridge? Planning a get-together and forget to stop at the store? Don’t fret, buy in bulk and make sure you always have some type of meat on hand! 

Buying for your local farm also lets you know exactly where your beef comes from and how it was produced!
