Beef & Pork Equivalents
For centuries people have purchased quarter and half cows and half and whole pigs. In fact, this method of buying meat can be traced back to the earliest times of bartering. In those days, people would by a “half a cows worth” of something.
Unfortunately, not all cattle or pigs produce the same quality of meat. When you buy a quarter or half cow or a half or whole pig, you can’t be sure of what you will get. It may be tender and lean. It may be fatty and tough. Afterall, all your meat is coming from the same animal.
Here is the good news. The Meat Block offers you a similar service, only better! We call them Beef & Pork Equivalents. Here’s how it works. When you purchase a Beef or Pork Equivalent, you are buying meat in bulk at a discount, the same way you would with traditional quarters and halves. The difference is that you are getting the same elite line of hand selected and hand cut meats that we sell in our store every day. What’s more, our equivalents are fully customizable. This means that you can get just the cuts that you desire and choose substitutes for the cuts that you don’t want.
