This company bridges the gap between farmers and your dinner table

Recently, more and more people have been craving a closer connection to the food on their table. They want to know where it's coming from and how it's made. It's no longer just about filling our bellies; it's about nourishing our bodies and caring for our planet. This keen interest has sparked a growing desire for transparency and sustainable practices in the food industry.

Enter Crowd Cow, the brainchild of a group of individuals who asked a simple yet pivotal question: where does our meat come from? What started as a quest for answers morphed into an innovative platform that bridges the vast gap between diligent farmers and conscious consumers. Now, thanks to them, securing ethically sourced meats that align with your values is just a click away. It’s not only a win for you but for small farmers and the environment, too.

A Unique Selection of Meats and Seafoods

You know that saying, "You are what you eat?" Well, that rings true when it comes to Crowd Cow's spectacular range of meats and seafood.

They offer beef that's not just good but genuinely exceptional. We're talking 100% grass-fed cows that spend their days grazing in lush pastures, offering meat that's lean, healthy, and packed with flavor. And if you fancy something a little different, there are pasture-raised options, where the cows enjoy a natural grain diet. Either way, it's all about quality and taste that stands a cut above the rest.

Next, Crowd Cow's selection of heritage breed pork includes renowned varieties like Kurobuta and Berkshire. It’s rich in flavor, straight from farms that prioritize ethical practices across generations of farming families. And don't overlook their natural pork options, a testament to genuine care and quality.

And let's not forget about chicken. We're talking birds that live the good life, roaming freely in grassy fields and nibbling on nature's bounty. These chickens aren't just happier; they are nutrient-rich, brimming with vitamins A, D, and E, not to mention the boost in omega-3s.

You'll also find a treasure trove of seafood options. Whether it's wild-caught fish that bring the freshness of the open sea to your plate or sustainably farmed varieties that support the environment and fishing communities, you're guaranteed a delightful seafood experience.

A World of Wagyu

One of Crowd Cow's most notable achievements is its role as a pioneer in introducing Japanese Wagyu beef to the United States. Wagyu, renowned for its intense marbling, buttery texture, and unmatched flavor, is a coveted delicacy in Japan. However, Crowd Cow's bold vision and unwavering commitment to quality led to the democratization of this extraordinary meat. The company's determination to bring Japanese Wagyu right to your front door has forever altered the American culinary landscape.

Sourcing and Standards

Crowd Cow sources their products from independent family farms and cooperatives around the world. They're not just partners; they are a part of the Crowd Cow family, working hand-in-hand to bring you the crème de la crème of meat and seafood. And it's all hormone and antibiotic-free.

Crowd Cow rolls up their sleeves and takes care of the nitty-gritty stuff like marketing and logistics, letting the farmers focus on what they do best – nurturing their animals and the environment. It's a beautiful friendship that makes the world (and our dinner tables) better, one bite at a time!

Plus, you pick the exact cuts and types of meat you want for each shipment. It’s like building a food playlist of all your favorite songs for your dinner table.

When it comes to going green, Crowd Cow has it covered. Their packaging is earth-friendly and won't just pile up in some landfill. They use materials you can recycle or compost, which means you're being a superhero for the planet each time you order.

Making new friends as an adult is challenging. While people crave meaningful IRL connections, it can be hard to know where to find them. But thanks to one Facebook Group, meeting your new best friends is easier than ever.

Founded in 2018, NYC Brunch Squad brings together hundreds of people who come as strangers and leave as friends through its in-person events.

“Witnessing the transformative impact our community has on the lives of our members is truly remarkable. We provide the essential support and connections needed to thrive amid the city's chaos,” shares Liza Rubin, the group’s founder.

Despite its name, the group doesn’t just do brunch. They also have book clubs, seasonal parties, and picnics, among other activities.

NYC Brunch Squad curates up to 10 monthly events tailored to the specific interests of its members. Liza handles all the details, taking into account different budgets and event sizes – all people have to do is show up.

“We have members who met at our events and became friends and went on to embark on international journeys to celebrate birthdays together. We have had members get married with bridesmaids by their sides who were women they first connected with at our events. We’ve had members decide to live together and become roommates,” Liza says.

Members also bond over their passion for giving back to their community. The group has hosted many impact-driven events, including a “Picnic with Purpose” to create self-care packages for homeless shelters and recently participated in the #SquadSpreadsJoy challenge. Each day, the 100 members participating receive random acts of kindness to complete. They can also share their stories on the group page to earn extra points. The member with the most points at the end wins a free seat at the group's Friendsgiving event.

This Map Reveals The True Value Of $100 In Each State

Your purchasing power can swing by 30% from state to state.

Image by Tax Foundation.

Map represents the value of 100 dollars.

As the cost of living in large cities continues to rise, more and more people are realizing that the value of a dollar in the United States is a very relative concept. For decades, cost of living indices have sought to address and benchmark the inconsistencies in what money will buy, but they are often so specific as to prevent a holistic picture or the ability to "browse" the data based on geographic location.

The Tax Foundation addressed many of these shortcomings using the most recent (2015) Bureau of Economic Analysis data to provide a familiar map of the United States overlaid with the relative value of what $100 is "worth" in each state. Granted, going state-by-state still introduces a fair amount of "smoothing" into the process — $100 will go farther in Los Angeles than in Fresno, for instance — but it does provide insight into where the value lies.

One man turned nursing home design on its head when he created this stunning facility

"What if we design an environment that looks like outside?" he said. "What if I can have a sunrise and sunset inside the building?

92-year-old Norma had a strange and heartbreaking routine.

Every night around 5:30 p.m., she stood up and told the staff at her Ohio nursing home that she needed to leave. When they asked why, she said she needed to go home to take care of her mother. Her mom, of course, had long since passed away.

Behavior like Norma's is quite common for older folks suffering from Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia. Walter, another man in the same assisted living facility, demanded breakfast from the staff every night around 7:30.

Being an adult is tough.

Nothing can ever fully prepare you for being an adult. Once you leave childhood behind, the responsibilities, let-downs and setbacks come at you fast. It’s tiring and expensive, and there's no easy-to-follow roadmap for happiness and success.

A Reddit user named u/Frequent-Pilot5243 asked the online forum, “What’s an adult problem nobody prepared you for?” and there were a lot of profound answers that get to the heart of the disappointing side of being an adult.

One theme that ran through many responses is the feeling of being set adrift. When you’re a kid, the world is laid out as a series of accomplishments. You learn to walk, you figure out how to use the bathroom, you start school, you finish school, maybe you go to college, and so on.

Charlie Munger of Berkshire Hathaway.

Charles Munger, Vice Chairman of Berkshire Hathaway and Warren Buffet’s closest business partner, passed away on Tuesday, November 28, at 99. Buffett and Munger's partnership lasted over 50 years, producing Berkshire Hathaway, one of the largest and most successful conglomerates in history.

When Munger passed, his estimated worth was $2.6 billion. Buffet, 93, is believed to be worth $119 billion.

But Munger was far more than just a wealthy man. Apple CEO Tim Cook called Munger a “keen observer of the world around him,” and he was known for his pithy bits of common-sense wisdom known as “Mungerisms.”

If you're grieving a loved one this holiday season, here's a gift you can give yourself

After losing her almost-4-year-old daughter to epilepsy, Kelly Cervantes created a "grief companion" that meets people wherever they are in their grief journey.

Kelly Cervantes wrote her way through grieving the loss of her daughter, Adelaide.

Kelly Cervantes begins the Introduction to her book with five words: "Grief sucks. It's also weird." It's a concise truth that anyone who has lost a loved one knows all too well.

Grief is a universal experience—none of us get through life without loss—but it's also unique to each person. Most of us are familiar with the popular "stages of grief" theory, but denial, anger, bargaining, depression, and acceptance (along with guilt and a host of things) are less like sequential rungs on a ladder and more like pools you fall into at various times as you stumble your way through the grief process. Grief is not linear and it's not neat and tidy and it's not predictable.

Take it from someone who's been there. Kelly Cervantes lost her daughter, Adelaide, to epilepsy just shy of her 4th birthday. Using writing as a therapeutic tool to help her process Adelaide's medically complex life, death and everything that came after, Kelly created the book she wished she'd had as she was trying to navigate her own grieving process.
