Crowd Cow lets consumers buy the exact cuts of the highest quality, organically sourced, grass fed beef direct from a local farm with the ease of ordering online, delivered straight to the customer.
Joe and Ethan have been friends for 15 years and already had 4 startups between them. The idea came when they went to an upscale grocery store to pick up steaks and found themselves wondering where the meat came from and why it cost so much.
And in talking with friends, they discovered that many of their friends had purchased beef directly from local farms, but it was hard to find a good ranch, coordinate payment and the idea of purchasing and storing a years worth of beef at once was too much. Joe and Ethan set out to make this easy for individuals to buy direct from local farms.
The company launched in late 2015 and in early 2017 expanded from the West Coast to covering the full US.
