in the meantime.
Ordering bulk meat is also convenient for meal planning, avoiding immediate effects of inflation (hint: order sooner than later!), and avoiding constant trips to the butcher or grocery store. I highly recommend that everyone who loves meat order bulk meat vs buying small amounts at a time. The only bottleneck to this experience is the size of your freezer…and I promise, a deep freezer is worth it!
