Our source for bison products comes from northern Wisconsin where the animals are grazed on prairie grass with NO chemicals, hormones, or grains - EVER! The animals are 100% grass fed, and are also "finished" on grass. Extra measures are taken to keep the animals in a very low stress, natural environment, which insures a more tender and sweeter tasting meat. The products offered here are from the same buffalos that supply top-quality bison to many fine restaurants and shops across the U.S. Now you can have this premium source of meat delivered directly to your home! Grass-fed animals have been shown to be higher in Omega 3 fatty acids than grain-fed and finished livestock. CLA is also an essential fatty acid found primarily in grass-fed animals. Some studies have also shown that grass-fed bison contain up to 4 times more selenium than grain-fed bison.
Bison contains more protein in relation to calories than beef. Bison are very hearty animals and are genetically a purer strain of red meat than most other meats. Bison do not have to be kept in barns, and can survive very harsh winters, finding grass to eat even when buried by a couple feet of snow! Bison is a very healthy, traditional source of meat in North America, and this is the premiere source of Bison in the U.S.! Most other sources of Bison are NOT 100% grass-fed, but include grains in the feed as well. These bison are NOT treated with hormones or antibiotics. They are naturally healthy and hearty animals. We only process our bison in the late spring through fall when they are grazing on green grass.
