ButcherBox is a meat delivery service that offers high-quality meats that are 100% organic and are sourced from pasture-raised farms. Their steaks are free from antibiotics and are from 100% grass-fed beef. They take pride in their non-GMO verified curated and custom meals.
In a ButcherBox and Omaha Steaks comparison review, ButcherBox emerged as the winner. Though Omaha Steaks is also a good source of prime steaks especially that it is dubbed as “America’s Original Butcher”, ButcherBox was the preferred choice of the reviewer based on its quality, price points, and of course, the shipping options.
ButcherBox offers free shipping options all around the US except Alaska and Hawaii. Their meats are vacuum-sealed, frozen, and are packaged in dry ice packaging to ensure that you receive them at their best quality.
Whittingham Meats is a family-owned business that was opened in 1947. They used to serve country clubs, restaurants, and Chicago Steakhouses with their high-quality meats. But, when the restaurants and dining rooms were ordered to close down due to the pandemic, they had to change their business model and started serving households instead.
From wholesaling to big establishments, Whittingham Meats’ bread and butter shifted to retailing to homes and offering free home delivery. They have meat boxes that they call Corona Care Packages. Their prices range from $80 for Tier D (a combination of pork tenderloins, beef fillets, bacon, chicken breasts, and bratwursts) and go up to $270 for Steak Lovers Dream which contains 13 cuts of steaks.
For now, Whittingham Meats only supplies households in Chicago. But, who knows, they might consider catering to more destinations soon.
