Trying out Crowd Cow

  1. Here's another startup that I'm trying out!
  2.  
  3. It's called Crowd Cow, and it's like an online version of that thing where you go to a ranch with friends or family and divvy up a cow (or half a cow). Alternately, like Kickstarter for butchering a cow and distributing its meat.
  4.  
  5. However, you can't buy in quite the same level of bulk that you presumably can if you're going directly to a ranch, and the prices likely aren't quite as good. The prices aren't bad, though! Here's what I got per pound, give or take a couple of cents:
  6.  
  7. 1) $6.50 on round steak
  8. 2) $10 on top round roast
  9. 3) $5.9 on "premium" ground beef
  10.  
  11. Altogether I ordered 20.5 pounds of meat for $150.99 (including shipping, which was $12.99). This may very well strain our freezer capacity, but I think my parents will be interested in buying half from me.
  12.  
  13. The prices are cheaper than some upscale grocery stores (note: in the Bay Area) and the meat is sourced more ethically, at least in theory. I hope that the cow "tips" (all the portions are sold) and I actually get the meat.
  14.  
  15. Anyway, here's my referral link: https://www.crowdcow.com/l/uzzi1cwwd/20
  16.  
  17. If you sign up, I get $15 and you get... nothing? I'm not sure. But hey, if you're interested, I would like $15 in free meat.
