A Complete CowMaking Ends Meat
A Complete Cow is a small farming operation based in the Wairarapa, where everything we do is small, slow and considered.
It all began 10 years ago with a clear, idealistic idea about how we wanted to grow meat for consumption; Slow and respectful and valuing every part of the animal, with the smallest environmental footprint possible. Since then we’ve been ruminating on the idea and now have our first meat available for sale.
Our monthly meat packs come in 4 manageable sizes so you are bound to find one to suit you or a larger portion to share with friends.
Each pack contains 5 meals for the month, 4 for the household and one to share with guests. Each month you will receive a variety of cuts different from the last so by the end of the year you would have eaten a whole cow
Steak, Joints & Other Cuts
Depending on the cattle-beast and the cuts chosen by the butcher to be most appropriate, you will receive a selection of cuts & sizes.
Mince & Sausages
Mince is great for bolognese, burgers, kebabs or meatballs! Your larger cuts may be supplemented with a little mince too. We have a limited amount of premium gluten free sausages made for us each month – these little beauties will make a regular appearance in our boxes
We produce quality meat from happy cattle grown slowly and for longer on our spray free farm using regenerative practices. We believe you will taste the difference.

We use regenerative farming practices to grow our soil and use no agrichemicals.
Our animals are grown slowly and for longer, a gentler approach to both the animals and the land and a more mature flavoursome
Our cattle are a byproduct of the dairy industry, this means we are valuing animals with little value right from the start. Some of our calves were rescued off the bobby truck!
We work under the premise that we are not ‘artisan’ but for everyone. We believe that good, slow-grown meat should be accessible to all and not just those with a certain bank balance. We are working to keep our prices as close to supermarket pricing as possible.
We value all meat cuts equally; they all come from the same animal and have been treated with the same love and care.
Aims & The Future
Our goal is to provide a humane onsite slaughter and to find a use for every single part of the animal, while providing high quality meat directly to a small, local customer base.
While we are still working towards this goal we are proud of what we have achieved so far and would love you to follow our journey on Instagram or sign up to our mailing list
