Do you know where exactly the meat you are eating came from? The name of the farm and what all they raise? If you go through Crowd Cow, then you will. They even have information on all the farms you are thinking about purchasing from. We mostly purchase from them for special occasions only because they are higher priced, but so far everything we have bought through them has been tasty. The Japanese A5 wagyu steak from Japan, Ground American wagyu from Texas, Italian sausage and bacon from Alabama and Maine lobster tail from Tenant's harbor in Maine. Everything is not available all the time, but you can have them email you when it becomes available.

Shipping and Packaging
Once you have made your selections it can take as little as three days to as long as a week. It seems to mostly depend on what day you order it on. The box comes packed with plastic wrapped "styrofoam" and dry ice. My first order came during the summer and it was in mid 90's, still had some dry ice and the meat was froze solid. My package came with a note on how to dispose of packaging. The box can either be recycled or used to start a fire to cook your meat with. The plastic bags can be recycled. The styrofoam can be composted and I believe recycled as well. My first thought was how are you going to compost styrofoam, well let me tell you, it is quickly biodegradable. You can run water over it and watch it melt to close to nothing!

To create an alternative to the current meat commodity system and to create a meaningful connection between farmer and the customer, so people can know where their food comes from. I'm not going to type out their whole mission. I'll let you check out the rest for yourself, but for me that says it all.
