Get the benefits of a regular meat box

No more hassle of shopping

Do you sometimes find yourself so busy that you have forgotten to order quality meat? When you need to go to a supermarket again?

Enjoy no more hassle – your quality meat arrives every month. A week before we let you know what the default meat options will be and choices if you wish to change anything. Save your willpower to do more important things than shopping.

Tried and tested meat selections

When you are tired do you notice you tend to buy the easiest options? And end up cooking the same meat cuts over and over? We try to help you. Every month you will receive a different default selection of meat cuts and types. You can change 3-4 times (depending on the size of your box) from our list of options we send you. In this way, you will taste and cook a wide variety of meat cuts. Don’t worry. It will be all cuts you know well. Steaks, minces, roast joints, stewing cubes and more.

Why the variety?

You might say you just want to eat steaks. But you won’t nourish your body with all the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients that the meat contains. Each meat cut and type contains different levels of nutrients. Each require different cooking approaches. Fast cooking preserves certain nutrients, reduces others and leaves some unavailable to the body. They are “locked” and only slow and long cooking can make them digestible. Variety is key to a good health.

Room to change

We all need to have an option to make some changes. You can pause your subscription if you go on holidays or you find yourself with too much meat to eat. You can change your subscription up or down as your needs change over time.

Plus, every month you have the option to select what you wish your meat box to contain and change from the default selection. You can make 3-4 changes every month.

What's in the cost?

Sustainable meat takes time and care to produce. There are no shortcuts. Shortcuts create meat that is poor quality or bad for the environment.

What is beyond organic?

Organic standars were given to farmers so that they were regulated in how they raised their meat. However, our farmers farm beyond organic standards: they only ever use natural methods, stock lower than in organic standards, keep animals always outside, no antibiotics or other medicines are used. And no chemicals are ever sprayed on their fields. Since we are not in an industrial, anonymous system where organic standards are necessary, if our farmer does not have one, we are OK with that. If they have certified themselves organic, then it’s fine as well. For some, it’s an economical question as organic standards can get expensive and lots of time can get spent on it. Our farmers farm as we would have done, so whether they have a paper saying they are organic does not make any difference to us. In fact, majority of certified organic farmers do not farm in a way that we require – truly sustainable with attention to soil health, sequestering carbon and helping the wildlife. That’s what really matters to us.
