How has buying meat from Blue Silo changed the way you shop, plan, cook or eat?

It’s much easier to plan meals when I know what is already in our freezer. It’s also actually cut down on our grocery bill, because before we would buy meat then not cook it, and throw it out rather than freeze it. I haven’t bought meat from the grocery store since I discovered Blue Silo.

Our youngest doesn’t like to try new foods. Since we started using Blue Silo, she has discovered she loves pork tenderloin and is more willing to try new recipes with other meats! So I’d say the biggest change is that we have tried cuts of meat we normally wouldn’t buy from the grocery store, and have enjoyed them!

What difference have you noticed between Blue Silo meat & store bought meat?

The quality is so much better. Everything from Blue Silo tastes fresh, has great color, and cooks perfectly!

What else do you want to share?

We are thankful we discovered Blue Silo. Our family cooks at home a lot, and having high quality meat has been a game changer! We also love supporting local businesses, so Blue Silo is a perfect fit for our family!

"Buying meat from Blue Silo has helped fulfill my desire to shop locally, keep my freezer stocked with ground beef (I appreciate that the ground beef is frozen flat!), and has made cooking easier in that way because if I don’t have a specific meal planned, I know that I always have ground beef in the freezer to make a quick and easy meal"

How to buy a Side of Beef from Blue Silo :: A Customer's Perspective

Since the beginning back in 2017, we've helped local families around Springfield, MO to fill the freezer with a side of beef. We're different from other farms because of our focus on making the ordering process easy for YOU. Most other farms charge by the pound based on hanging weight and expect the customer to call the butcher shop with cut instructions, pay the butcher separately and pick up your own meat.. Worst of all, you don't know how many of each cut you'll end up with. Recently S & A K. from Nixa, MO left us this Google Review describing what it was like placing their first bulk order with our farm. Here's what they had to say...
