Mama is Buying in Bulk

Quite some time ago, The Busy Mom mentioned purchasing meat from Zaycon Fresh.  I love The Busy Mom (and word of mouth is held in high regard for me) so I decided to check it out.  It seemed really neat.  Buy meat in bulk, fresh from the farm, cutting out the grocery store middleman.  

Here's a video from Good Morning America on the whole process...

Every few months, I'd get an email from Zaycon telling me that a chicken event was coming to my area!   We go through a lot of chicken in this house.  However, every time I got around to deciding that I wanted to make a purchase, I had waited too late, and the chicken was sold out.  Darn.

A few weeks ago, I got another Zaycon Fresh email.  This time, the chicken was $1.69 a pound.  I wasn't waiting to make a decision, I bought chicken right away.  The chicken comes in a case of 40 pounds.  I bought two cases.  I have a FoodSaver and I'm ready to use it!

Next week, I pick up my chicken.  I'll be ready to trim, prep, and freeze 80 pounds of chicken!  I'm already working on a list of ways I'm going to prepare all that chicken.  Can't wait to share the details with you!  Head over to Zaycon's website now to see if there's a pick-up point near you!
UPDATE 6/15/15:
I picked up my 80 pounds of chicken and spent the day getting it trimmed, bagged, and sealed before I filled up the freezer.  I was incredibly impressed with the freshness and quality of the chicken.  The portions are LARGE and definitely worth the money.  I have even cooked a few meals with the chicken and I've been thrilled with the quality of the chicken.  I will definitely purchase again!
