For several years now, I have been buying almost all of my chicken, ground beef, and ground turkey from . It’s no secret I’m in love with their quality meat and affordable prices!

This is my first time purchasing their Premium Hickory Smoked Bacon, and it is fantastic! I’ve been wanting to “splurge” on buying their bacon for awhile, but I’ve been waiting to save up enough referral credits. It did not disappoint! 🙂 It comes frozen in 12 3-lb packages, which makes it super easy to throw in the freezer with no packaging work on my end. We love the hickory flavor of the thick-cut slices.

If you haven’t tried  before, I highly recommend it! As an added bonus, they offer regular sales and promotions, as well as a wonderful referral program.

36lbs of Bacon (@$3.79lb) = $136.44, minus $27.29 (a promo/sale code they were offering) = $109.15

~Used $109.15 of Referral Credits
