Review: ButcherBox (#1 Meal Delivery Service For Grass-Fed Meat?)
ButcherBox is an excellent meal delivery service kit if you’re a fan of both high-quality meats that are all grass-fed, free-range, along with the convenience of freshly delivered meals to your doorstep from Tuesdays through Saturdays.
ButcherBox partnered with fresh local farms to make quality and responsibly raised and fed meats available to families and communities for affordable rates (products are typically less than $6 per meal), and all deliveries are sealed and insulated with care.
A lot of us who enjoy meat, and especially those of us who enjoy the convenience and accessibility of delivery meal plans, simply don’t have access to affordable and fresh options, so ButcherBox is changing the way we can feed our families and ourselves and both eliminate antibiotics and calories.
This also makes an excellent selection for fans of the Paleo or Whole30 diets and with every new membership, you receive two pounds of free ground beef with every monthly subscription.
ButcherBox Meal Plans and Options
One of the best parts of ButcherBox and how unique it makes it in comparison to a lot of competitor services and meal plan options is how customizable the boxes are and how many choices you get as a new customer.
There are over 60 total meat options to pick from, all with sustainable sourcing practices.
With the new “my choice” option you can pick from custom boxes in either “classic” (9-14 pounds with 6 of your own selected cuts) or “big” box sizing options (with 18-26 pounds of 12 cuts of your own selection). Selections include Filet Mignon, Italian Ground Sausage, Chicken Tenders, Drumsticks, and more. The first option is great for smaller families and couples, and the big boxes suit larger freezers and mid or large size families.
ButcherBox’s most popular option is the Mixed Box, where you can select your own meals from a variety of fresh poultry, pork, and meat options at either 24 meals or 48 per every 30 days or 60 days. The options are always changing, always fresh, and always locally-sourced and antibiotic free. You can also do add-ons if you see a selection you really like, like fresh Breakfast Sausage or Whole Pork Tenderloin. As with all the plans, you can skip a week if desired.
The Beef and Pork and Beef and Chicken Box Options are the same meal rates (24 or 48 per every 30 or 60 days), but as described, eliminate options you may not enjoy. So if you aren’t a fan of the ButcherBox Chicken, you can go for the first option, and enjoy the same add-on features. Likewise, if you or your family are not pork eaters, you can still enjoy ButcherBox without it.
Last, you can select the same plan option with an all beef menu, at the same meal rates (24 or 48 per 30 or 60 days), with exclusive menu options like Ground Beef Brick and Top Sirloin Steaks.
ButcherBox Pricing Structure and Plans
ButcherBox pricing options are a lot easier to understand and laid out very clearly (in comparison to a lot of major competitors). While for a singular source of food, it isn’t cheap, it’s also not extremely pricey for high-quality and 100% sustainable sourcing methods, in addition to the added convenience factor of a meal delivery service kit that arrives freshly insulated to your door at your convenience.
The custom box option is $129 for 24 meals every 30 or 60 days (which averages $5.38 per meal), or $238 for 48 meals on the same schedule option ($4.96 per meal).
The Mixed Box, Beef and Pork, Beef and Chicken, and All Beef Options are all the on the same pricing structures with the same 30 and 60 day options.
Add on options (for all meal options) are typically between $7-$25 per pack, depending on if you select high premium cuts or convenience options.
Shipping anywhere within the U.S. is free of any additional charge and there are always different promotional codes and offers to take advantage of (some of which we have listed below).

Beverly joined MFS with a diverse breadth of experience in writing and digital marketing. Throughout the years of placing recipes on MFS, I’ve noticed an uptick in the number of “subscription boxes” for the cooking/food market. It was then that I decided to also include my own personal review of these subscriptions on MFS.
