    This could be financial, or food, but whatever.

    You ever heard of, or used, Zaycon food distributors ? You order online, meet the truck at a designated location, offload, and both of you are gone shortly. They carry beef/pork/chicken/seafood. We're gonna try the shrimp....description looks good, price is right at 7.99/lb (compared to local prices here) +20% coupon thru end of March.

    Never heard of 'em, but the way things are going these days, meeting them at the police station might be a good idea ;)
    The prices are about average for this area and they show a few deliveries in the next month or so...might see what the have. I do have to wonder where they get their inventory from and exactly how fresh it is, though.

    Appreciate the heads-up @TnAndy

    Someone on another forum told me they carry wild sockeye salmon sometimes....that and the shrimp is about all I'd be interested in....we raise everything else they sell, plus catfish in our ponds.

    I have been buying from them for several years, bacon, 93/7 hamburger meat and chicken breast. I can a lot of it. The chicken and hamburger have never been frozen, bacon comes that way. Usually 40 pound boxes on everything. A+ in my book. Never been disappointed in quality or price.

    Thanks @T. Riley for letting us know that it is good quality meat.

    Chicken breasts were an okay deal. Bacon was only so so quality wise. Breaking it all down and repackaging it into useable portions was a PITA. Costco or Sam's might be less trouble for about the same $.

    I have never heard of them. Are they nationwide?

    One of my rabbit breeder friends over in Arizona loves Zaycon and places regular orders with them. I am debating ordering some chicken breasts through it but not keen on the 8-8:30 am pickup located an hour away from me.

    Sorta. If you go to their website and plug in your zip, you'll get an idea. (None in my AO, did not look further.)

    I've used them a few times, but when you compare prices be sure and add in the cost of ziploc bags or whatever you intend to store it in. When I did the math, I found my local butcher to be almost exactly the same cost for hamburger and it saved me the time of packaging. Also, the chicken is great quality and good price, but I'm not sure how to tally all the stuff I tossed when I put it into useful portions for us.

    I take it you bought whole chicken ? Besides bones, what did you toss ? Once our chicken is gutted, everything but the bones gets used here.

    I bought the boneless chicken breasts. They come uncut and I cut them into useful fillets for us and tossed the connective stuff in the middle. I don't like it in my canned chicken, it's tough and tasteless.
