Bison are wild animals whose natural instincts are very much still intact.  Because of this they are hardy and disease resistant and need minimal intervention from ranchers to stay healthy.  The use of growth hormones, steroids, and non-therapeutic antibiotics is strictly prohibited by industry standards.  Our operation is free of artificial reproduction practices and uses proper land management to minimize any exposure risk the herd may have to disease.

In addition to the health benefits above, bison meat tastes delicious.  It has a full and robust taste without the “gamey” flavor that sometimes comes with other lean red meats.  Yet the available cuts, preparation methods, and taste are similar enough to beef that it is easy to substitute into the recipes you already know and love.  Think chili, lasagna, fajitas, and pot roast, as well as burgers and steaks.
