July 31st, 2018 by Caitlin Postal • Read 4,698 times • 1 min read

Much like fine wine or decadent cheese, no two steaks taste the same. Yet only modern meat enthusiasts nuance the flavor and texture profiles of craft beef, enjoying the local and specialized range of flavors between farms and cuts. Throwing a beef tasting is as easy as any other tasting (and you can still drive home safely afterward). It's remarkably easy to throw a beef tasting, especially with Crowd Cow beef tasting flights. 1. Select your...

Not going to lie: these breakout stars are a party just waiting to happen. Beef Up Your Brunch Some say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so we say specially prepared Wagyu beef should be the...

Craft Beef: A Revolution of Small Farms and Big Flavors

March 29th, 2018 by Joe Heitzeberg • Read 5,260 times • less than one min read

When we started Crowd Cow almost 3 years ago, we wanted to experience the "absolutely incredible-tasting" beef from small, family-run farms that our mutual friend had told us about, and to make that accessible to everyone. What we didn't realize at the time, is that beef itself is every bit as diverse, rich and interesting as coffee, wine, chocolate and microbrew. As we met with farmers, butchers, chefs and modern meat enthusiasts, we...

February 19th, 2018 by Joe Heitzeberg • Read 4,468 times • 5 min read

Small producers in this country often face a tough choice: send their cattle off the auction yard for a cut-rate price, or raise the animals to maturity and take on the often overwhelming expense of marketing, logistics and support to sell their beef directly to eaters. The lure of selling direct is great: farmers could earn a higher price per pound for their meat than what they earn through auction. But there are several challenges for a...

Crowd Cow broke into the innermost chambers of the Japanese beef world to become America's first-ever direct sourcer-seller of A5 Wagyu from Japan. Here's the story of how we did it. There are not a lot of people out there who have tried Japanese A5 Wagyu. But if someone you know has tried it, you've probably heard about it, in the form of happy ranting and raving. And as you can probably tell from the photo below, this is not the steak most...

It Begins With Happy Cows

May 14th, 2015 by Joe Heitzeberg • Read 2,867 times • less than one min read

The other day we had the privilege of spending a few hours on one of the most inspiring ranches in the state of Washington, if not the entire country. The owner, a fifth-generation rancher, showed us the rivers and barns where her grandfather played as a toddler, and explained why the considerable care and love that she puts into tending her cattle is so important to their happiness, and ultimately, to the quality of the meat.
