One night, our founder Mike Salguero ended up in someone's living room picking out his very own $400 pile of meat from a cow share. Not just any cow, either - a 100% grass-fed cow. He was instantly hooked on the pure, natural taste, and was thrilled to discover the health advantages grass-fed beef has over ordinary grain-fed beef.

So why wasn't everyone eating it?
Mike learned that not everyone has access to grass-fed beef, or their exposure is limited to products like ground beef. Currently, only 1% of the total beef consumed in the United States is 100% grass-fed. Our goal is to make grass-fed beef (and now, heritage breed pork and organic chicken) more accessible than ever before.
ButcherBoxbecomes a reality
As with many start-ups, the ButcherBox office began as a stolen seat or two in cafes around Cambridge, and at one point, a closet - until finally, we were able to set up shop in our Harvard Square location. It's been humbling to grow at such a rapid pace and become the leading online source of grass-fed beef.
