Crowd Cow has created a very easy to navigate and thorough website that not only teaches us about cooking and preparing each cut of beef, but also reminds us of how important it is to support sustainable farming. It has never been any easier and more concrete than now. Crowd Cow, which has recently launched its nationwide customer reach, believes in enjoying incredible beef the right way: sustainably and humanely. For me personally, this is one of the best food industry concepts I have learned of in many years. Founders Joe Heitzeberg and Ethan Lowry wish to erase the wary and uncertainly of ordering beef at your typical grocery chain and have created a crowd funding sales style of purchasing ethical, and ‘artisanal’ beef.
Most often you do not know which country the beef is coming from, even if there is a stamp that reads “grass fed.” Instead, Crowd Cow customers pick the specific cuts and quantity they want while enjoying the convenience of ordering online. The site encourages meat lovers to rally their family and friends, claim a share, tip a cow and become a “steak holder.”
