Reminder: we are reposting this from a few weeks ago as we pick up ours in a few weeks and there is only a short window left to order…So read on for the previously posted details!
Oh…we are SO excited to have received an email from Zaycon foods that their most popular signature sale just started! This is great news for us and for you because THIS is our favorite chicken sale, THIS is how we stock-up on chicken to feed our family of 7 and at a very affordable price for high quality natural chicken!
Let us tell you about it, because a smart frugal home should look at this option vs. buying chicken in the grocery store. This is probably also going to be better options than other local chicken sources as it is natural, no added hormones, additive or artificial ingredients. So it is a good alternative to organic when you can pay $1.79 for good chicken vs. the $5-$7 per lb. price for certified organic. In fact, it is actually cheaper than many grocery store low quality, unnatural chicken breasts. You really cannot go wrong. We love the taste, quality and freshness that our family has grown accustomed to.
This chicken is sold via Zaycon Foods which is a nationwide company that provides fresh chicken, beef, pork and seafood to families at an affordable price. Their meat is higher quality and in some cases a natural option. They only have meat offerings at certain times of the year and for a certain type of meat. The last natural chicken breast sale was in the fall. You do not know how often or when they will have these sales
Well, right now is their Trademark Event where they are selling 100% Natural Chicken that has no added hormones, no added additives and no artificial ingredients for the low price of $1.79 each lb.
The way that this works is that you place your order and then you will pick up your order from a local pick-up site as they are delivered to the area fresh. This is an AMAZING price per lb. for this quality of chicken breasts. You do need to order in 40lb. cases and you can get multiple cases. This comes out to be $71.60 each 40lb. box.
We are getting 1 box this time as we bought two in the fall during the last sale that they had. One 40 lb. box will last our family for 3 months, and since we bought 2 last time, I have about half of it left, so hopefully one more box will get us through to the next Chicken sale! We freeze half of the chicken raw in ziplocs and the other box we cook it all up and chop it up and have cooked cubed or shredded chicken which makes dinner so much easier as this is always the hardest part for me (defrosting and cooking the meat). So the days I have very little time, the cooked chicken is the answer.
We had first heard about Zaycon foods a while ago and we wanted to wait until their chicken sale as we get our beef from a local farmer and we don’t eat pork because I (Cassie) don’t like it (if mama don’t like, it don’t get cooked – LOL). The first time we ordered and brought it home and enjoyed some, it was very impressive chicken!
We highly encourage you to look into this and to place your orders. Most areas need to have their orders completed in the next few weeks to not miss out – HOWEVER, they do have a limited quantity at each pick-up location and last time I waited too long too order and had to drive 45 miles to the closet pickup (but it was still worth it). But I would have preferred the pick-up spot 3 minutes from my home instead. I did not wait this time and I was able to order with pick-up close to home 😉
The next time they will be offering this could be a while. We have known about Zaycon for quite some time and we have only seen this sale twice.
Here’s details about the chicken that they offer (this information is from their site):
Our Trademark Event
• 100 % natural chicken with no added hormones, additives or artificial ingredients
• Comes directly from the processor and has never been frozen
• Sold by the case — 40 lbs in each case
• Case dimensions—18 in wide x 12 in deep x 7 in tall
[NOTE: Our chicken is delivered in its original wholesale packaging, a water resistant cardboard case containing three or four plastic bags of fresh chicken breasts. The smaller bags are typically sealed in a larger plastic bag. The smaller bags are not uniform in weight. There will be small amounts of naturally occurring liquids (i.e.,”chicken juice”) in each bag and case. Chicken breasts typically come in double-lobed pairs (“butterfly”) and will have small attached amounts of fat.]
Just as we have mentioned many times in our classes, we rarely buy meat at the store. Between our beef supply from a local farmer a couple of times a year and buying chicken in bulk, we are set for most meals. Most all of our weekly budget goes to the fresh produce and dairy and small portion to the coupon items that we use!
We are excited to try this chicken. We have heard so many great things about it! Have you tried this before?
