American Plains Bison
The Plains Bison, which at their zenith numbered between 30 and 70 million animals, once ranged from Alaska to the northern tier of Mexican states, and from the East Coast to the West Coast of North America. The demise of the herd did not come until the Euro-American expansion westward in the late 19th century. But thanks to the cross-cultural efforts of ranchers, public-lands managers, and tribal nations, the Plains Bison has made a welcome comeback during the 20th century. The North American Plains Bison meat yields a marvelously tender, slightly sweet flavor with subtle reminders of the pasture in which the animal was raised.
Although we've been farming this land since 1995, we decided in 2008 to offer our product to the public. Due to the fact that our farming continues to be a hobby, we still keep our production to a manageable level for us. Our buffalo are pasture-raised on our farm, living off of grass and hay. (more...)
