To Get Started Click on this link – ZAYCON FOODS
In July, I signed up for Zaycon foods. We’ve been waiting patiently for a few months now for their Chicken event that was held on October 9th in Wrightstown, NJ. I received several notifications that the event was coming up and many reminders to make sure I would be there between 11 and 11:30am to pick up my chicken. I left the house a little early because I wasn’t really sure what to expect when I arrived at the Church where the Zaycon truck was unloading. I easily found the truck and the driver instructed me to pull right up next to him. A very nice man with an iPad confirming my order, laid down a garbage bag to protect my trunk and placed the large box of 40 pounds of chicken in my trunk. The whole process took maybe one minute if that.
|How my chicken was packaged|
I should have read the website once again, because I would have remembered that the chicken was not packaged in any sort of way suitable for freezing. So, after unloading my freezer to organize it to make room for the chicken, I had to make a mad dash to the CVS across the street where I totally overpaid for freezer bags. This was 100% natural chicken with no added hormones, additives or artificial ingredients. It comes directly from the processor, so it has never been frozen.
|double-lobed pairs (butterfly) chicken breasts|
I was shocked at the very limited amounts of fat on these breasts and how large they were. We are a family of 4 and eat a lot of chicken, but we felt that each double butterfly was more than enough per bag to feed us. I cooked up the above chicken for 4 of us the night we received the chicken and it was plenty to eat for everyone. All together we had over 20 bags of chicken breasts.
Currently, Zaycon has events for:
- Hickory Smoked Bacon
- Non-Homogenized Whole Milk
- Pork sausage links
- Raw honey
- Rotisserie turkey breast roast
- Smoked Pulled pork
The 40lbs of chicken cost around $75 and I really feel that it is well worth the price. I told my husband that when we are through with this batch, we will order again because it was a great value and easy to do! Plus, I like that there are no club-fees or memberships!
