Cowpool™ refers to sharing beef, but we’re not talking just any beef. The Cowpool™ program will distribute sustainably and humanely raised beef from a source you can trust, in this case, rancher Mike Callicrate. At his natural meat company Ranch Foods Direct, the goal is to foster a business that benefits both ranchers and consumers, with processing and distribution systems that assure incomparable quality, wholesomeness, eating satisfaction, and a mutually rewarding relationship of trust and responsibility between the rancher and the customer.
