I know the title says 30 days, but, in all honesty, this will last us at least six weeks, if not two months easily. We will eat like kings the entire time. This is all grade A grass fed Angus meat. Whether it's chicken or pork, it has been fed the proper diet that God intended, not man!
It seems like a lot to pay $300.00 all at once, but if it lasts six to eight weeks for every meal your family eats then it's a great bargain in my opinion.
Our total cost out the door was $317.00. If the produce I get from volunteering at the farmer's market fills in the balance of our meals, then our food budget is roughly $ 350.00 for two months including extras like milk and cheese, etc..
I know everyone may not have both the volunteer farmer market opportunity and the *great* local butcher shop we have, but if you dig around and peek into a few corners you honestly could probably find the equivalent of exactly what we've come up with. A little work goes a long way in this area!
