Health Benefits

Our family has a long-standing affection for and curiosity about Bison, dating back to Bob’s days as a third-generation Colorado dairy farmer. If you’re here, then chances are you’re as interested in them as we are!

Health Benefits

Grass-fed bison is lean & healthy, packed with amazing amounts of natural nutritive benefits, including Omega 3 fatty acids and lower cholesterol than chicken or fish.

Bison, America's 'Original Red Meat', has been rapidly gaining in popularity over the last decade, and with good reason. Its flavor profile is similar to grass-fed beef; lean, flavorful and slightly sweet without the ‘gaminess’ associated with other big game animals.  The nutrition and lifestyle of grass-fed Bison results in meat that is high in Omega 3 fatty acids, iron and vitamins, while being much lower in saturated fat and cholesterol than other animal proteins - even chicken and salmon!  Read an article on the importance of Omega 3 to a healthy lifestyle.

Our grass fed and finished Bison are naturally raised, without the use of drugs, hormones or antibiotics.  They spend their lives in our vast pastures, eating the legendary North Park hay and drinking pure mountain water flowing directly from Routt National Forest.  We do not finish our Bison on grain, and find that our Bison meat is more juicy and tender than any we’ve ever tried.  See if you agree!
