People will be able to get their hands on the world’s most marbled steak, the A5 Wagyu on March 19th at 9AM PDT through Crowd Cow, a convenient way to purchase quality meat directly from the farms. Note: the A5 usually sells out in a few hours, so we recommend putting in your email to get notified about the launch.
Co-founder Ethan went to an upscale grocery store to pick up some steaks and found himself wondering where the meat was from and why it cost so much.
In talking to his friend Joe, they discovered that many of their friends had purchased beef directly from local farms, and had bragged about how great the meat was. But the trouble of finding a good ranch, coordinating payment and pickup and the idea of having to purchase and store up to a year’s worth of beef at once was too much.
There had to be a better way. Ethan suggested they “crowdfund a cow” so that 50 people could each buy a tiny amount of beef directly from a local farm. After a couple of weekends visiting ranches and building a website, Crowd Cow was launched and the first cow was sold in 24 hours.
Crowd Cow’s mission is to allow everyone to discover and enjoy the very best beef from small, independent ranches and to make the experience convenient and fun.
Crowd Cow is committed to showcasing and celebrating very best farms and the people who have dedicated their lives to producing healthy, high-quality meat you can trust.
Crowd Cow lets you buy a cow with friends. Claim a share, rally your friends, tip the cow and become a “steak holder”.
Crowd Cow lets you buy the exact cuts and quantity you want direct from a farm with the ease of ordering online, delivered straight to your door.
We believe that beef should be enjoyed like wine, with an appreciation for the varieties and a deeper knowledge of the source of the food you consume.
A cow’s genetics, how it was raised, and how the meat is cut and prepared are easily as rich a subject as grapes, and are worthy of our attention.
Raising high-quality beef in a sustainable way is both time-consuming and expensive. That’s why 84% of beef sold comes from industrialized processes and companies that probably don’t want you to know how it reached you.
Crowd Cow puts an end to mystery meat.
Crowd Cow is the only brand in the world that provides direct access to small, independent ranches with the greatest possible level of transparency available anywhere.
And we’re committed to selling beef for a fair price so you can explore and enjoy the very best beef, support the ranchers who bring it to you and never overpay again.
