Eat less & better meat

Healthy, delicious and ethically reared beef; delivered to your door

Online Butcher

As part of the global crowdbutching initiative, Buyacow.uk is the first UK based online butcher that — beyond just premium grade beef — promises transparency, healthy produce, zero waste and the highest levels of animal welfare all the way from field to fork.

Buyacow.uk Promises

  • Traceability and transparency of the farm, farmer, breed and ear tag number of your meat.
  • Highest animal welfare standards as we work exclusively with farmers with the strongest track record in rigorous third party inspections of animal care.
  • Zero waste (there are currently 100,000 cattle worth of beef wasted every year) by offering a nose-to-tail mix of pre-portioned meat products in each of our boxes.
  • You pay less while supporting small-scale farmers to earn more by cutting out the supermarket middleman! Our price comparison proves it!

How does it work?

As a mix between online butcher and crowdfund platform, buyacow.uk provides the opportunity for sustainably minded consumers like yourself to buy a share of a cow from small-scale, traditional farmers who slowly and ethically rear pasture based, free range cattle. Once all your given cow's remaining shares are sold, your animal will be slaughtered at a family run, local abattoir, processed at an organic meat plant, matured and finally delivered to your door in a biodegradable meat box. Try it now at just £1.85 a serving!

how it works

  • Sharing a cow together
    1. PURCHASE A SHARE

    Click one of the cows above to buy a share. Then alongside our set cuts, customise your combo of minced products.

  • 2. SLAUGHTED & MATURED

    Once 100% sold, your cow is slaughtered and matured for 3 weeks for premium texture and flavour.

  • 3. PORTIONED & PACKED

    Your meat is then pre-portioned into 28 or 56 meals, vacuum sealed, and finally boxed using biodegradable cartons.

  • 4. DELIVERED HOME, FREE

    We'll 'moo-ve' your meat-box to your doorstep, safely chilled, as well as free of any further charge!
