Bison and the grasses native to the North American ecosystem, evolved in tandem over thousands of years. Our native grasses thrive under conditions of short periods of severe grazing, hoof action, and manuring, followed by periods of rest and recovery. As the bison graze, their hoofs stir up the soil, burying seeds and creating small pockets in the earth to capture precious moisture. This is very important as grasses serve as powerful carbon traps that remove CO2 from the atmosphere and return it to the soil through their root system.
The biological makeup of bison equips it to thrive in weather conditions that other ungulates cannot sustain. Bison are not domesticated animals, they remain wild and are genetically engineered to survive in the wild without human assistance. They are extremely hardy animals, that are almost disease resistant (which contributes to lower vet and medical costs per animal head compared to other domesticated animals such as cattle). Bison live a long and productive life and females calve on their own, bison can remain productive breeders beyond 20 years of age. Bison have Low fat + high protein meat = An excellent product with strong and growing consumer demand.
Even though the bison industry is growing rapidly, a major factor that is presently inhibiting continued growth in the consumer marketplace, is consistent and adequate supply. We believe that demand especially for naturally raised grass range fed bison will continue to outstrip supply in the foreseeable future. We intend to meet this demand by providing a consistent and growing supply of top quality grass fed ethically raised and field harvested bison products.
The American public is increasingly embracing the great taste, and nutritional attributes of deliciously healthy bison meat. People are also increasingly recognizing the role bison are playing in restoring healthy landscapes across North America.
