What is Butcher Box?

Butcher Box is a meat delivery service and they collect their meat directly from local farms that raise finished and grass-fed beef, organic free-range chicken, heritage pork, as well as Alaska Salmon which was hunted down in the scary wild. After they collect their meat they take very good care of it before delivery. They pack meats with very safety and freeze them so that customers can get fresh and Finest quality meat.

They always make sure to deliver meat at their frozen state to customers to ensure the best quality.

They always make sure that every ounce of meat they collect is from those animals which are raised naturally, take good care, have no hormones or antibiotics, and do have high quality.

FAQs regarding butcher box

People ask too many questions about the Butcher box. Now I am going to answer some of the most common ones.

From where they collect their meat?

I have already described, from where Butcher box collects all their meats. For emphasis sake, I will do that again. Butcher box collects all their meat from local farms. The farm is selected very carefully. They only select the farm which raises their pigs, cows, and chickens naturally and without any kind of vitamins or any artificial medicine.

It is simple that animals can not be raised with the help of any artificial medicine. It should be natural, roaming, and eating natural food.

Who delivers the box?

FedEx is used by the Butcher box for delivery. So you don’t need to be around unless it doesn’t require a signature.

This gives you more time cause you know you don’t have to do anything but receive the meat.

How long does delivery take?

Well, It depends on you whether it’s your first order or not.

If it’s your first order after your order it will take an average of 2-3 days to prepare your box and get ready to ship.

After everything, It will not take more than 3-5 working days for you to get your order sent to you. Each month you order you will get a fixed time meanwhile you better check your email for order confirmation and delivery location.

What is the arrival condition of meat?

Butcher boxes always ship all their boxes to the owner in its freezing state. But if the delivery is delayed or the weekend starts before the delivery you might not get it frozen. Though they pack the box with plenty of dry ice. So there is a minimum chance of getting the meat not frozen.

Is Butcher box grass-fed?

Yes. I can safely call them grass-fed. The farm that Butcher box use to collect their meat raises their animals in a natural way. They don’t feed anything artificial. Animals live very normal and natural lives at the farm instead of forcing them into smaller spaces.

Is the butcher box worth the money?

Well, it depends on your situation. If you can afford to buy grass-fed finished meat so why will you buy some cheap quality meat which you don’t know came from where. In my opinion, it’s worth every cent.

It will also save you time and effort to move from one shop to another to find meat.

Can you pause, cancel, or change your butcher box?

Yes, you can. You can suspend your butcher box membership for 6 months anytime you want. If you decide to cancel everything, do that before the next billing starts.

The same rules are applied if you want to change your meat box. Do that before the next billing.
