A former colleague wrote this Medium post a month ago, about how she bought a cow. She’d grown up in the Danish countryside, used to be within reach of proper food from proper animals, but had since moved to UK and back, this time to Copenhagen, Denmark, and had been amazed by the lack of proper food. So she bought a cow. A cow that will foster many a calf, turning in to great cattle and food. Food which she will keep her self or sell of to others.
I got totally hooked on the thought. Getting a cow, coming up with funny name, visiting it (one, probably) and getting pieces of it delivered straight to my door, when time was do. Not before, not after. And of course, frying it on a pan and enjoying it medium-rare with a pinch of sea salt. Maybe with some green beens on the side. Maybe with som bernaise. Definitely with red wine.
Then again, trying to fit half a cow into my more or less non-existing fridge was I quest I passed on the second it came up. Furthermore I wasn’t really near any sorts of farm or field. And I know I’m not the only one who feels like that.
This all led me to Home Grown Cow. This is a place where you can buy meat, poultry, milk etc. by bulk, and have it delivered straight to your door. You place an order with a certain farm, which you and your demands can agree with, they will cut up the animals etc. when it’s time, and then it’s delivered. How great is that.
One thing though – change the logo.
