I probably shouldn't answer this since we raise our own so obviously our price is a tad different. It sounds like a lot to me. Is organic or grass fed? Just regular beef, I would think you could get cheaper.
2.29 a lb is a good sale price for here. its usually closer to 2.99 a lb regular price.
I like costcos meat better bcz it seems to have less gristle in it than the ground beef I can get at the stores here.
I think it depends on what you are looking for...conventional factory farmed versus organic or grassfed.
At Costco I can get three pounds of organic ground beef for about $12. My grocery store carries Tallgrass brand grassfed ground chuck at $5.99 a pound. Recently I discovered that I can get grassfed local ground beef for about $4.50 a pound and that's what I usually do.
