Lockdown had seen a whole host of new changes to people’s lives and I would say that how we shop would definitely be one of them.
We saw panic buying with the supermarkets being ransacked, to people not wanting to leave their homes and frantically trying to book home delivery slots that were like gold dust. A lot of us also turned to local small businesses that really came to the help of so many in this time of need – one of these was Kenneth Bashford who formed Meatpac which is a home delivery service, providing quality meats at reasonable prices.
They supply a huge range of different packages from family to granny, breakfast to BBQ, roasting to steak and many more so there really is something for everyone.
The other week I received the family pack that was delivered straight to my door with a smile and before I had even looked in the bag I was hit with the gorgeous smell of herbs that had been added to the pack which was a lovely touch.
We are a larger than average family and I was thinking this pack would probably be on the small size for us but I was shocked at how much there was…definitely value for money and a great variety.
I took some meat and put it straight into the freezer for later in the week and then pondered over what to do with the rest.
I decided that due to the great quality of the meat I would keep it simple and just enjoy the flavour with a mixed grill which went down very well with my lot!
The meat was flavoursome and I got no shrinkage like you do with supermarket meats.
There no better time to support local businesses and when the quality and value for money is as good as this then what can you possibly lose!
