I’m about ready to place an order with AzureStandard. We buy produce from a farm in MA and I go get it, other dry goods and meat from a co-op in VT which I also retrieve. Do you buy bulk goods regularly? From where? Do you go and get it or do you get it shipped?
Sometimes I buy chicken in bulk from Perdue Farms and I get it shipped. Shipping is $20 unless you spend like $160 or more. They have some good deals pretty regularly.
I used to but not anymore. I used to get wheat berries and grind my own flour, plus some other dry goods, but my source was mainly for the upper Midwest and I had to buy 12+ months at a time to get free delivery, which was the main way to make it cost effective. Azure is a good source for smaller amounts of bulk goods and convenient if your local drop is convenient (the nearest one to me was 25 minutes one way and at a bad time/day combo).
For many years we bought whole pigs custom butchered but I’m going to stop doing that just because our food preferences have changed.
When I had the spoons to do a lot of food preserving I bulk bought several different kinds of fruit and veggies, sometimes direct from a farm on-site, other times at a farmer’s market.
I also used to buy ~600lbs of rabbit feed a month, though when it comes to livestock that wasn’t considered a bulk purchase (bulk pricing usually starts at per ton amounts).
We bulk buy all our beef. Usually 1/4 cow per year with some extra 50lb orders of ground. From a local rancher or my cousin, so that doesn’t help anyone else much lol.
Where are you? NH?
Who me? Yes to NH here.
Woohoo NE rep!
Sorry for missing the reply feature.
Hi. I know this is an old thread, but I’m wondering if anyone knows where I can buy 50 lbs. of already picked and cleaned wild blueberries at a bulk discount?
I sent you an email.
