Why is it important to know where your food comes from?

February 21st by Joe Heitzeberg • Read 643 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...

February 5th by Joe Heitzeberg • Read 1,293 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,...

Help break the cycle of food recalls by knowing the source of your meat

December 9th, 2018 by Joe Heitzeberg • Read 901 times • 1 min read

Meat recalls have become as routine as trips to the grocery store. Since November, the U.S. is averaging a recall every two days and there are still 50 active cases. What is more concerning than a recall’s frequency is the scope. The latest JBS raw beef salmonella recall spanned across more than 30 states and recent recalls have impacted big names like Kroger, Walmart and Whole Foods. Consumers understand that foodborne illness can happen, but...

The other day I had a special house guest, and I wanted to show them how exciting, delicious and easy-to-cook Craft Beef from Crowd Cow is -- better than anything sold anywhere else online, in stores or even in high end steak houses. So I reached into my freezer and pulled three New York steak cuts from three very different farms and breeds: a spectacularly marbled A5 Kuroge Washu striploin from Japan (raised in Kagoshima which earned the...
