Buying wholesale meat in bulk is one of the best ways to save money on your grocery bill. However, if you don’t make a plan before you purchase wholesale meat, you may end up with more meat than you can eat before it spoils. Here are some tips to follow the next time you come to Mills Family Farm to buy some meat.
• Plan Wisely- Before you come to our farm, have a list of the different types of meat you want. If you have purchased meat from us in the past, take a quick inventory of what types of meat you still have leftover in your freezer. Coming prepared will ensure that you are able to stick to your budget.
• Only Buy What You Can Eat- It can be easy to get carried away when you are purchasing wholesale meat. However, try to avoid buying more meat than you and your family can eat. A typical rule of thumb to go by is to only buy an amount of meat that you can eat within a three to six month time period.
• Think of Storage- Most meats can last several days without spoiling in your refrigerator. However, if you don’t plan on using your meat sooner than that, it will need to be stored in your freezer. Before you come to us to purchase meat, make sure you have enough storage in your freezer to keep your wholesale meat.
When you buy wholesale meat from us, thinking about what you can eat, having enough storage in your freezer on hand, and planning your purchase will help you get the best value out of the meat you purchase.
