What is Cowpooling?
Ever heard of carpooling? Same concept - but replace car with cow! Cowpooling is putting families together to purchase a live animal. Multiple families from the same region come together to purchase an entire cow. We handle the groupings for you in order to create a stress free process for our customers. Families have the option of choosing between 1/8, 1/4, or 1/2 of a cow, or any combination thereof. Each package contains the following.

How do I get the beef?
Once your cowpooling group is full, the beef is dropped off from the farm at the processor. We hang our beef for 21 days to ensure the highest quality and best tasting beef. Hanging the beef improves flavor by allowing natural enzymes in the meat to break down through dry aging. This process also allows the water in the meat to evaporate, which concentrates the flavor. After processing and packaging, we pick up the beef from the processor & deliver it directly to your home. Upon delivery, we will organize your beef in your freezer and show you the 5 steps to the $100 plate!
