Zaycon Foods: Ground Beef and peaches sale opens tonight (5:00 pm Pacific)

by Angela Davis on August 3, 2011

Zaycon Foods, a Northwest company that sells larger quantity boxes of fresh meat at a volume discount, is coming to the Oregon, Washington and Idaho area in a few weeks, delivering ground beef and fresh peaches. This sale will probably sell out quickly, so I want to make sure you’re all prepared. Here’s what I know:

Ground beef (93/7) — 40 lb case @ $2.79/lb = $111.60

Peaches – 48 lb case @ $.79/lb = $37.92

I have tried the Zaycon ground beef and was extremely pleased at the quality and taste. I have not tried the peaches yet, but at $.79 a pound, I think I’ll take a chance!

Deliveries start August 19, but I don’t know the exact locations, dates and times at this point.

The sale opens at 5:00 pm Pacific today (8/3). To prepare, make sure you have a Zaycon Foods account. At 5:00 pm, Zaycon will begin posting the sales. At the last sale, it took about 30 minutes for everything to be listed, so don’t freak out if you don’t see a convenient location right away. Just log into your Zaycon account after 5:00 pm tonight and place your order!

Also note that the ground beef & peaches sale is not listed on the site before the sale begins (and won’t be until 5:00 pm Pacific on 8/3).

For those of you who are new to Zaycon, you will go to the delivery location at the specified time, roll through the parking lot and pick up your boxes of beef and/or peaches. You don’t have to leave your car.

The chicken I received from Zaycon was from the South. It was from a large factory farm. To me, the chicken smelled badly. There were a few pieces that clearly were not fresh, actually kind of slimy. Most of the chicken was fine. Personally I found the chicken to be gross. I prefer organic, humanely raised fresh chicken. I purchased Zaycon based on the description. While others like the chicken (it is a great price!), I will not repurchase or recommend.

We got peaches yesterday as well and they were gorgeous and delicious. We blanched and peeled them, cut them into slices, mixed with lemon juice (preservative) and made a simple syrup and mixed that in. Poured them into quart bags and froze. Super easy, done with 36 lbs in less than 2 hours. Made a cobbler last night and it was the best ever!

I picked up some peaches last night from the first Zaycon peach sale, and they are incredible! BIG, gorgeous, perfect and ripe! Our cheapest U-Pick is 99¢/lb, so this is a great price!

Can someone tell me what’s so amazing about Zaycon Foods? Are the meats higher quality than grocery stores? From local producers? The ground beef comes to $2.79/lb for 7% fat, but Safeway just had 7% fat for $2.49. So I’m not seeing why this is such a great deal.

I guess I understand the peaches for people who can and freeze, but 79 cents a pound doesn’t seem like an amazing deal that you have to jump on immediately. Or maybe my recently transplanted from southern California roots are showing.

There are are many who would like to purchase their beef in large quantities without having to hunt down a deal. Ultimately, it’s a matter of convenience.
As far as peaches, the cheapest we could find that year was $.50-$.70 a lb for U-pick. So if you want them delivered without the hard work of U-pick, than $.79 is a great deal.

I see. There’s only me and my husband here, so my 8 pounds from Safeway is going to last us quite a while. Forty pounds seemed overwhelming. LOL

For those who are buying the peaches, what are you going to do with that many? I wish I had more people who would split an order with me, but I’m afraid we couldn’t eat them all before they went bad. Any ideas?

Most people buying that volume are planning on canning them, or peach preserves or even freezing them for smoothies and winter pies and cobblers.

My mom and I are going to peel, cut and freeze them on cookie sheets then vacuum seal them. We will them for cobblers, pies, smoothies etc.

I have purchased a deal from Zaycon previously, and what bothered me about it is- I emailed the company wanting to know where the chicken came from.. they said it was local but I wanted to know where, and I never got a response.

Kathleen- you pay when you order.

The chicken is not local. I have purchased chicken from them 3 times and it is usually from somewhere in the Southeastern U.S. It is excellent quality and very fresh, but you may have to do a little trimming. The last few times it has improved as to the amount of trimming needed as compared to the first time I purchased from them. The ground beef is excellent and is less per pound than Costco’s 12% (it is $2.99/lb.). I will be picking up peaches from them for the first time tomorrow and I will let you know about the quality of those if you would like. HTH!

Do you pay online when you order or when you pick up the food?

Reply

Michelle Ferguson August 4, 2012 at 7:43 am

You pay online before picking up order and print receipt ,the day of event you drive up show receipt and your car is loaded up with your order, everyone is very friendly.
