February 21st by Joe Heitzeberg • Read 1,194 times • 1 min read

Ask anyone “if” it’s important to know where the food you eat comes from, and nearly everyone will say yes. Ask them “why, exactly?” and even the most discerning eaters will struggle to give precise answers. I think it’s important to start a dialogue about this topic, so it’s a question I’ll be asking everyone we interview on our forthcoming podcast, “Let's Meat Up.” As the Co-founder and CEO of Crowd Cow, I’m uncovering answers to the...

Why I no longer pay attention to labels like “organic”

February 5th by Joe Heitzeberg • Read 1,813 times • 3 min read

It may shock some people, but I no longer pay attention to labels on meat products. For years, I’ve traveled the country meeting with chefs and farmers in search of the world’s best craft meat, and over and over I hear that labels and certifications aren't meaningful or helpful, and can be abused to misrepresent the truth. The “organic” label is a good example. Thanks to the rising popularity of “grass-fed, grass-finished” and “organic” beef,...

November 30th, 2018 by Joe Heitzeberg • Read 2,353 times • 1 min read

There's no secret to a great steak: start with the best meat -- from farms that dedicate themselves to producing the very best. Dry-aging (something nearly all of Crowd Cow's 100+ craft beef producers do for a minimum of 10 days) adds to the flavor and tenderness of the beef. Season, cook appropriately and let the meat speak for itself. If you want to get fancy -- without much effort -- this post has you covered. I'm going to tell you how to...

Craft meat is global and we're bringing it to you

October 3rd, 2018 by Joe Heitzeberg • Read 2,277 times • 2 min read

When Ethan and I started Crowd Cow a few years ago, we had a simple purpose: to find the best beef possible. For us, and to this day, that means seeking out the very best of small-scale, independent farms who are uncompromising in their dedication to flavor, quality and high ethical standards. That search led us to dozens of farms across the Pacific Northwest, where an abundance of rain leads to lush pastures and some of the best-tasting...
