ButcherBox is a subscription service that delivers humanely-raised, high-quality protein—including beef, chicken, pork, turkey, bison, and fish—to individuals and families living in the continental United States. ButcherBox subscribers can choose to build their own box or receive a curated one, packed with frozen proteins, cooking instructions, and insulation to keep everything fresh. Shipping is always free, and boxes can be shipped out monthly or bi-monthly (your choice). Bonus features such as free shipping make ButcherBox a fantastic choice for meat lovers across the country.
Founded in 2015 in Brighton, Massachusetts, ButcherBox has been dedicated to three pillars from the start: quality, sustainability, and affordability.
ButcherBox’s sourcing professionals only work with family farmers and fishermen that conform to the ButcherBox standard of quality. For example, all ButcherBox beef is 100% grass-fed, meaning the animals are pasture raised for the entirety of their lives. The same desire for quality can be found in all ButcherBox proteins, including chicken, pork, bison, turkey, and seafood.
Butcher Box is highly committed to working solely with sustainable farmers and fishermen. All Butcher Box fish are wild-caught, with careful attention paid by the fishermen to the natural health of the ecosystem to avoid overfishing. Similarly, Butcher Box sources most of its beef from Australian ranchers, where cattle are pasture-raised for the entirety of their lives.
ButcherBox professionals work hard to keep their products affordable. Individuals and smaller families can purchase a month’s worth of meat (about 8–11 pounds) for $146. Additionally, Butcher Box proteins arrive frozen, meaning they can be thawed and cooked immediately after delivery, or served up to a year after receiving.
ButcherBox offers four subscription protein boxes, three of which contain pre-selected proteins and the other which is a customizable “build-your-own” box. Regardless of the type of box selected, customers can select either a Small or Large shipment size.
Butcher Box’s Curated protein boxes offer protein essentials at a great bargain. Customers simply select the size of their box and their preferred protein mix; in a matter of days, their first box arrives right at their door.
Curated Box: Beef, Pork, and Chicken
Curated Box: Beef and Pork

Customers who select the Custom Box are in complete control. In addition to selecting box size and protein selection, Custom Box customers can select the specific cuts of meat they’d like included in their shipment.
With no need to create a login and password, you can order your first box from ButcherBox in a matter of minutes.
To start, go to ButcherBox’s website and click “Choose Your Plan” at the top right corner.
Next, you’ll be asked to “Select your plan.” ButcherBox simply wants to know if you’d like a Curated protein box or a Custom protein box . Go ahead and click your desired choice.
Regardless of which plan you select, you’ll next be asked to choose a box size. Box sizes come in “Classic” and “Big.” Classic boxes are designed for individuals or small families, where Big Boxes are better for medium-sized or large families.
Next, you’ll select your proteins. If you choose a Curated protein box, you’ll have three options here: Beef, Pork, and Chicken; Beef and Pork; or Beef and Chicken. If you select a Custom protein box, you’ll be able to choose a select number of proteins (6 for the Classic box, and 12 for the Big box) and their respective cuts.
ButcherBox stands out from other meat delivery companies by also offering seasonal “Member Deals.” These add-ons are typically seasonal and first come, first serve. Examples include Gluten Free Chicken Nuggets, Cold Cracked Lobster Meat, and Charcuterie Variety Pack. After choosing your proteins, you’ll be asked if you’d like to add any of these limited-quantity options to your cart.
ButcherBox will also ask you if you’d like to “Add-On” to your shipment. Unlike Member Deals, Add-Ons are recurring, meaning you can expect to find the same options month after month, including ground beef, apple gouda sausage, tender belly bacon, and boneless chicken breasts.
Lastly, ButcherBox will ask you to enter your billing address, shipping information, and payment.
Customers who select the Curated Box will receive a mixed assortment of the following cuts, in accordance with their selected proteins. Custom Box customers have the choice to pick and choose each of their cuts from the non-exhaustive list below:
You don’t have to wait long to receive your ButcherBox shipment. After billing is processed, most shipments are completed in 2–5 days.
ButcherBox ships all of the protein frozen, packing each protein item in a vacuum-sealed container. All of the frozen proteins are then encapsulated in insulation and cardboard packaging, the majority of which is recyclable or biodegradable.
Shipping is free on every ButcherBox order.
ButcherBox offers high-quality, humane proteins at affordable prices for Americans in the 48 continental states. In just a few minutes, customers can select from a variety of cuts of delicious proteins, including chicken, beef, pork, bison, turkey, and fish. If you value quality, value, and sustainable grazing, Butcher Box will deliver along all three of its pillars.
