What do you buy at Ranch Foods exactly? I live in Highlands Ranch and would love a healthy meat option that doesn’t break the bank. I also do tons of freezer cooking and good meat is important!
Here’s my reply to Marci:
The one thing I consistently buy there is their 85/15 ground beef bundle, which is around $3.99/lb when you buy it in a 20-lb box of one-lb packages. I love the flavor of their meat, and because it tastes so much better than everything else and is also hormone-free and antibiotic-free, I’m fine with paying $4/lb for it. I’ve had some of the “healthier” options out there that don’t taste any different than traditional meat and frankly, I have a hard time paying more for things if I can’t taste a difference, even if they are supposed to be healthier. I can’t afford to buy the best of everything, so I choose what to pay more for based on both health and taste.
In the two years since I’ve started buying my ground beef there, I’ve only bought one package of ground beef elsewhere – I’d rather go without than get “regular” ground beef! Their steaks are amazing, but are rarely in my budget. :) I do buy roasts and other meat elsewhere. I’d buy it all at Ranch Foods if I could!
