If you’re a serious carnivore or just an omnivore who wants to eat the best, then you know that supermarket cuts often don’t, well, cut it. The difference between a standard, mass-produced steak and one from a small, independent ranch is obvious and worth paying for. And given the current impetus to stay at home (that’s a nice way of putting it), having the latter delivered to your doorstep is a prospect that’s too good to pass up.
Enter Crowd Cow, a mail-order service that checks all of these boxes. The company sources all of its meat, poultry, and seafood from more than 100 small, independent farms, ranches, and fisheries. Crowd Cow staff visits every prospective supplier, walking the fields, examining the operation, and, of course, taste-testing the finished product to ensure it meets their standards.
That means you can trust everything on Crowd Cow. The antibiotic-free steaks really don’t have antibiotics and the Salmon patties are really made from wild-caught sockeye salmon near Cordova, Alaska. That also means that you can trust that everything you order, from lamb chops to Wagyu steak to chicken thighs, will taste damn good.
You can order everything on Crowd Cow a la carte, but the company recently added new subscription options that will regularly ship you boxes. But unlike other services that force you to choose from a few predetermined assortments, Crowd Cow is completely customizable. You can choose exactly what you want and receive it exactly when you want it, shopping by product type, dietary preference, and even specific farm. You can also alter, reschedule, skip, and even move up delivery on individual boxes depending on your needs.
There’s never been a better time to try Crowd Cow, and not just because it lets you eat well without leaving the house. The company is currently offering free shipping on all subscription boxes over $99 (instead of the usual $150) and a five-percent discount no matter what you add to your recurring box.
