How many times in your career do you have the chance to create a ubiquitous consumer brand, build an entirely new supply chain, and change a big part of the food system? Our mission is more critical than ever. More people are looking for ways to purchase high quality food products, without leaving their home, and we are an important part of that food supply chain. Additionally, our marketplace allows our farmers and ranchers a vehicle for getting their proteins into the homes of consumers across America, thus helping them to continue their life's work and sustain their farms. 

Crowd Cow is a mission-driven startup founded in 2015 with the idea that the most important of food purchases – beef and other proteins – deserves to be associated with high-quality practices, total transparency, and close connection to the independent family farms producing the food. The Crowd Cow model isn’t the norm: In this country, 84% of beef comes from industrialized and factory processes that don’t benefit consumers, small-scale farmers or animals.
Today, Crowd Cow offers the most convenient and direct way to purchase from independent and family-owned farms, giving American consumers access to a world of craft beef more diverse and flavorful than most people realize. We’re also creating opportunities for the very best independent producers to reach more customers and to showcase their unique traditions in ways never possible via the internet. Crowd Cow has raised significant investment and has been featured in leading publications including the New York Times, the TODAY Show, Food & Wine, Forbes, the Guardian and more.
In today's current environment, our mission is more critical than ever. Our business continues to thrive, as more people need access to high quality meats and seafoods, without having to leave their homes. Our model also allows farmers and ranchers a way to continue getting their product into America's food supply chain.
