Quite simply.. we ask our artisans to commit to us. This enables Carnivore Club to offer premium products not available to the average retail customer. In order to reduce the cost of this service to our members we spread out the cost over a 3 month subscription. This commitment allows us to offer gourmet charcuterie way below average retail cost. It also enables us to offer a discount to recurring subscribers vs customers who simply purchase one-time boxes.
