Review box and giveaway was provided by Grass Roots Farmers’ Coop. I was not monetarily compensated. All opinions are my own.

Another subscription service? Yes! I love getting mail and I love meat so when I was asked to check out Grass Roots Farmers’ Cooperative meat subscription box, I was stoked. Plus, I get to giveaway a $100.00 gift certificate to a reader and you can use the coupon code GFMIAMI for $50.00 off a box! How great is that?

The first thing that stood out to me was their business model.

Fun fact – I actually have a master’s degree in International and Intercultural Education. Part of this degree was studying about sustainability and how this affects the community. We read fun books like The Ecology of Commerce. I miss those days, nowadays I mostly read Dr. Seuss!

I digress – the business model for Grass Roots is amazing. It is a farmer-owned sustainable livestock cooperative. Try saying that 3 times fast. Basically, this means that the farmers who are part of this earn a living wage, while still being able to provide 100% pasture raised beef, poultry, and pork.

Grass Roots Farmers’ Cooperative Review

So what did I think of my Grass Roots Farmers’ Cooperative experience? Overall I loved it.

Pros

  • Blockchain Tracking– Basically you can scan your package and track the entire journey of your meat.
  • Easy ordering – the Grass Roots site is really easy to use.
  • You get to choose your meat – it’s completely customizable. They also tell you how much each pound costs.  I love this because I was able to pick exactly what my family wanted and meal plan around it.
  • Affordable The mix of beef, poultry, and pork I ordered averaged out to about 8.00 a pound. You can easily choose less expensive cuts to keep in your budget. I ordered a couple of steaks, pork chops, a whole chicken, bacon, chicken wings, and chorizo.
  • Easily comparable to grocery store prices for grass-fed meat. Several items were actually cheaper than their conventional counterparts.
  • Completely recyclable and biodegradable packaging.
  • Easy to cancel anytime.Grass Roots

Cons

  • Auto Shipment- this is not necessarily a con, but you do have to remember to go in and change your order if you need to or pause your account if you are going out of town.
  • Expense- while the prices are comparable for the quality of meat you are receiving, it may not be for everyone.

Grass Roots Farmers Cooperative

Right now you can receive 50.00 off a 100.00 order from Grass Roots Farmers’ Cooperative by using the code GFMiami. That’s half off a box of quality meat which is an amazing offer. It gives you a chance to try it out and decide if it’s for you before you make a long-term commitment. If it isn’t you can easily cancel.

Below is the giveaway for a $100.00 gift certificate from Grass Roots Farmer’s Cooperative that will go to one lucky read to create their own box! Good luck!

    I love subscription meal services, and this one sounds awesome. I grew up in the English countryside, and I know farmers do not have it easy. Fresh, high quality meat is hard to come by, it would be great to just get it in the mail!

    This meat sounds amazing. There is such a difference in taste between grass raised and feed raised.

    I have read about this once before. We keep talking about buying a cow (but 3 years later we still haven’t). I’ll have to talk to my husband about this!
