Why A-La-Carte Meat Shopping Is Better Than Subscriptions

What does the “Easiest Farm to Plate Experience” mean? After decades of working with, on, and for farmers: our founder, Darius Campeau, saw a need to connect people directly to the source. However, after looking at options on the market, it seemed you had limited options to getting good meat : order an expensive freezer order for a year, get a rigid subscription with complicated point systems, or order large boxes or bundles with hidden price points.

A-la-carte meat shopping provides you with the freedom to select the cuts, quantities, and types of meat that suit your preferences and needs. No more surprises – just the meat you love, every time.
