After Zaycon Fresh closed suddenly it left people looking for other ways to buy meat online. These are a few alternatives to Zaycon Fresh you can try.
Have you heard the big news? Zaycon Fresh closed suddenly on June 25th,2018. This is leaving a lot of families stuck with bills for the food they will never get.
The Zaycon Fresh website just has the message shown below. Many are having to dispute the charges with their credit cards. You can try to contact them at email@example.com and hopefully, they will end up making this right for people.
I had considered trying Zaycon Fresh after reading so many rave reviews but since it’s just me and my husband I didn’t really want to buy such large amounts of meat at a time.
I know people are now looking for alternatives to Zaycon Fresh. I decided to do some research and see what options I could find to hopefully make the switch easier for people.
Where Can You Buy Meat Online?
Most ways to buy meat online are a bit pricey and are often focused on specialty meats. While those options are okay it won’t work for everyone. There are some great places you can buy meat online for affordable prices.
1. Thrive Market
Recently, Thrive Market has started selling meat and seafood. They have a lot of great options and even some organic options.
Thrive Market does require a membership but you can get great deals not only on meat but also other natural food and household products. It’s kind of like an online Costco without having to buy in bulk.
2. Join a Local Co-op
Many areas have food co-ops that allow you to buy straight from the farmers and ranchers. Because you cut out the middleman you can get local food for amazing prices. Many co-ops now have ways to order online and have the food delivered to you
3. Crowd Cow
Crowd Cow is a great way to get high-quality meat delivered to you. The meat comes from small family farms and you get the full details about the farm you are ordering from and can pick ones closer to you.

I haven’t tried this one yet but everyone is raving about it. ButcherBox allows you to order all kinds of meat that has a high standard. They even often give away free bacon, who doesn’t love free bacon?
5. Azure Standard
I also haven’t used Azure Standard but my mom has and is very happy with it. They have all kinds of natural products including meat. They have delivery stops all over the US.
These options along with using local shops and services like Instacart are great ways to get affordable meat delivered to your home. And of course one of the best ways to save money on meat is to eat less.
While giving up meat altogether may not be right for everyone just reducing how much you use can make a big difference. A great way to get started is by trying Meatless Monday.
