Cowherds is a Salford-born social enterprise, started in 2014, whose workforce is made up of local volunteers, apprentices and workers. Workers’ involvement in Cowherds has led to improved self-confidence, self-esteem and general wellbeing. Buying their cold pressed juice gives you so much more; tasteful juice coupled with supporting your local community.
Cowherds takes its name from Reverend William Cowherd who lived in Salford over 200 years ago. His church group held congregation in the Beefsteak Chapel, which was located on what is now Queen Street.
It was from here that the first ideas of vegetarianism in Britain were formed, as Cowherd’s congregation were meat free from 1809.
