why buy from a CO-OP?
- conventional shopping has conventional ease and conventional quality. you don’t know much about the meat or the food.
- purchasing better quality food supports quality producers. it’s better for the animal, the planet, and YOU.
- you don’t have to be wealthy to be healthy. purchasing in bulk from something like the Vegas Food CO-OP allows you to take advantage of group pricing without having to purchase a lot.
- there’s no membership fee, and no minimum purchase.
ordering from the Vegas Food CO-OP:
- visit the Vegas Food CO-OP here.
- here’s a video on the ordering process.
- if you’ve never ordered we’d recommend starting with the 30lb combo beef and pork CSA share. you will NOT be disappointed!
the best deal if you can afford it and have space would be the family package! LEGIT!
- get yourself a quality chest freezer! it will last you forever!
sourcing quality meats from other places:

Force of Nature Meats.
I love getting “Ancestral Blends” from this place that include ground meats and ground organs.
I have not ordered from here, but I’ve heard nothing but great things!
Nose to Tail.
similar to butcher box, but much more focused on animals nose-to-tail.
U.S. Wellness Meats.
U.S. Wellness Meats is a great place to purchase anything and all things quality meat. a little pricey, but always available. I like to get organ meat products here.
located in Northern Nevada, Alpine Ranch offers grass-fed beef and pastured Berkshire pork options. similar to the Vegas Food Co-op, they make deliveries to cities like Las Vegas. average prices are around $6.50 / pound for ground beef, $7.60 / pound for packages.
we have many people in our community that use Alpine Ranch. I’d suggest using Vegas Food Co-op once, and then using Alpine Ranch to compare.
my friend Colby (owner of The CrossFit Combine) has been ordering from Slanker Grass-Fed Meat for years and loves the quality. try them out! they average about $8 / pound for ground beef, and $10 / pound for packages.
what I do?
