Zaycon Foods is a company that sells meat in bulk orders. Sort of a food co-op… but not really. They deliver bulk purchases at what they call ‘events’. Each event specializes in a specific product. Chicken, ground beef or Ham are their main products but they also handle:
All boneless and skinless, natural and healthy. I was pleased with the prices too!
• 100 % natural chicken with no added hormones, additives or artificial ingredients
• Comes directly from the processor and has never been frozen
• Sold by the case — 40 lbs in each case
Since I was not able to get down to the next chicken event as I had to teach (I tutor at a local homeschooling community) I did the next best thing. I drove down to the next beef and ham event. I picked up a box of 40 pounds of ground beef, and a box that contained 2 large boneless hams.
The beef comes in 4 rolls of 10 pounds each. I planned on doing a post about canning beef, but I couldn’t bring myself to can it! We seldom eat beef so it was a big treat for us. We are big venison consumers. If you want to can this beef, do it the same as venison.
Beef burgers we do though. And we did.
Hams come in a box with 2 large boneless hams. We had one for Christmas dinner and lots of leftover ham for breakfasts. The other is in the freezer waiting.
Zaycon Bacon wrapped around a Venison Roast. YUM! If you like a somewhat thick sliced bacon you'll love this bacon.
And Zaycon sausage links for a quick breakfast meat. I take these out and cook from frozen. Pretty convenient! (hmmmm... I may have to try canning these.)
When I first read about “events” I wondered….. What do you mean “event”? Not to worry, it was just like a drive through meat store.
You place your order ahead of time and print off your receipt.
When you arrive at your event location you don’t even have to leave your car. Everyone lines up and drives past the back of the Zaycon truck. There, two friendly guys greet you with a big smile and ask your name. They then go grab your box and put it in your car. Drive away. Easy.

If you have not registered before you’ll need to enter a name and zip-code. Then you can see where and when events will be happening by you.
The closest event to me is an hour away but it appears the company is growing and will hopefully be coming closer to me. They have event locations all over the states. If there is not one near you spread the word, if they get enough interest in your area they will organize a delivery for you.
I’m really liking this system. It was so smooth and easy. I wonder if others have the same experiences in their area?
I'd really like to hear from others who may have purchased from Zaycon. If you have any experiences to share please leave a comment below.
I've had several questions regarding Zaycon Foods that I didn't know the answer. So, I asked them! Here's what they say.....
