Support Local Beef Producers With MeatSuite
NC Choices is introducing MeatSuite.com to North Carolina consumers. MeatSuite.com is a website of local farms selling meat in bulk quantities directly to consumers. Interested shoppers search by location, species, and farm practices. Farm profiles contain contact information and pricing, and consumers connect with the farmer directly.
NC Choices had planned to announce MeatSuite later this summer but, in light of the current situation, the site launched enabling consumers to stock up on locally-raised meat and support nearby farmers.
In the past few weeks, more NC farms have created profiles listing their bulk meat products, particularly “bulk bundles.” A bundle is a package (in a variety of sizes) of assorted meat cuts suited to any budget or need. Farms are added daily and farmers interested in joining the site, should visit MeatSuite. First time bulk buyers will get help in navigating their order.
In addition to saving money, consumers using MeatSuite are buying local and supporting community producers. Also buying whole, half, or quarter animals is efficient and profitable for the farm. The website has videos explaining the concept and tips on freezer storage.
