I was drawn to ButcherBox for a variety of reasons. One being I couldn’t find a good price on grass fed beef and humanely raised meat near me.
I loved that I could get high quality meat delivered straight to my door. It’s basically like having an online butcher!
There’s something about not having to buy meat at the grocery store that’s pretty magical.

Butcher Box Review – How It Works
If you’re nervous about ordering meat online, don’t be! ButcherBox makes ordering meat a breeze. Their website is easy to use and they have great customer service if you ever have any questions.
How ButcherBox works:
Step 1: Set up an account. You can use this link to get up to 7 lbs of FREE meat in your first box!
Step 2: Choose your subscription type. Choose between:
Beef and Chicken
Beef and Pork
I always go with the custom box so I can choose exactly what cuts of meat I want. If you’re content having ButcherBox send you whatever cuts they have, go for the other boxes – you’ll save a little money too!
Step 3: Choose your box size:
Classic Box (9-14 lbs.)
Big Box (18-26 lbs.)
Step 4: Choose your billing date. This is customizable according to your needs and can be changed in your account settings at any time.
Step 5: Choose the frequency you want your box delivery to occur. The options are every 2, 4, 6, and 8 weeks. This setting can also be changed at any time in your account settings. I like getting my box every month.
Step 6: Add any other items you may want from the “member deals” section and checkout to complete your box order!

Packaging of the actual meat is not the best. I always have some packages in every box that leak when I thaw them. I learned that the hard way when the raw meat juice leaked all over my fridge.
To combat this I always make sure to thaw the meat in a container to catch any juice that might leak. I definitely wish the packaging was better but it’s not a deal breaker for me.
It can be pricey. For me, but not everyone, ButcherBox is a bit of a splurge – but it’s one that’s worth it. Feeding my family high quality food is really important to me, and it’s worth the price.
I wish in general that healthy food was cheaper. But I’ve accepted that it’s not and we budget for it.
The meat can be delivered late – which unfortunately means the meat can be thawed upon delivery. But fear not! ButcherBox will always replace any meat that isn’t frozen to a safe temperature when it arrives at your door.
A late box is usually not the fault of the meat delivery subscription but more-so the postal carrier. Sometimes things happen that are out of our control so it’s best just to go with the flow on this one and replace any meat that didn’t arrive frozen.
Overall, I highly recommend ButcherBox. The pros heavily outweigh the cons for me, and I’ve been very happy with the quality of the meat!
And let’s be honest, having it shipped right to your door is pretty awesome.
