My First Butcher Box Order

My First Butcher BoxMy First Butcher Box Order Has Arrived

With two sons and a husband our family are mostly meat eaters so stocking up on quality meat is important for me. Usually I shop at Bristol Farms, but this time I decided to order online at butcherbox.com. I read many positive reviews about this store and decided to give it a try.

It takes about 3-4 days to ship the order and in 3 days I was notified that the delivery would be the next day. I live in the apartment complex, and I was wondering where they would leave the boxes. Last week when my friend ordered donuts for us, the DooDasher left them right near the gate. When I got the message that my order had been delivered, I expected to find it there too. But there were no boxes in the street, and I decided to check the Parcel Office. And they were there.
