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!
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!
