Does Buying Meat in Bulk Make Sense For Your Family?

Whether it is pork, chicken or beef, buying meat in bulk can be a great option if you live in a house full of meat lovers! However, it can also be a financial and logistical commitment. If you’re considering whether buying bulk is a good option for you and your family, we encourage you to ask yourself the following questions:

Does your family enjoy home cooked meals?

Buying in bulk can mean saving trips to the grocery store, but you also have to consider that you’ll likely be dining out less once you have a freezer full of delicious meat. When you buy in bulk, you’ll receive a large variety (and large quantity) of cuts; so, whatever you do, don’t let it go to waste!

Does your family include animal protein in your meals several times per week?

If meat is the star of the show at your dinner table several nights a week, buying in bulk is likely a great option. However, if you tend to opt for plant-based meals more frequently, you may want to reconsider how much meat you truly need.

Is your family happy to eat a variety of cuts of meat?

Different cuts of meat taste best when prepared well. If your family enjoys getting a little adventurous in the kitchen and doesn’t mind straying away from your tried and true favourites, don’t shy away from buying in bulk. You may be surprised as you try new cuts, perhaps you’ll discover a new favourite!

Do you have the upfront investment available?

Your money can go a lot farther when you buy meat in bulk, compared to purchasing packaged meat from the grocery store. However, you must have the upfront investment available at the time of purchase. Depending on the weight of the animal, expect to pay a per pound price.

Do you have adequate freezer and storage space?

If you’re buying in bulk, your kitchen freezer probably isn’t going to cut it. You’ll need a larger freezer, or a chest freezer for storage. This may seem like an obvious point, but you’d be surprised how many of our customers are shocked by how much meat they receive when buying in bulk.
