I don’t typically eat a lot of red meat, but on occasion, I do have a craving for a juicy slab of medium rare beef. A friend of mine recently came back from holidays in Whitehorse, Yukon, a northern Canadian territory, where he had bison meat for dinner one night, and according to his wife, he’s been raving about it ever since. So, I did a search for bison meat suppliers online and came across Wild Idea Buffalo Company, which has its 28,000 acre ranch in South Dakota.
Founded in 1997 by Dan O’Brien in an effort to preserve the Great Plains and return buffalo back to their native lands, and to offer a delicious, healthy, 100% grass-fed meat alternative to the industrialized food system, he pursued his wild idea of sustainability and has been supplying “grass fed, free roaming bison meat straight from the Great Plains” ever since.
Allowing their bison to graze on the nutrient rich native grasses and roam freely across the Plains, the polar opposite of modern industrialized cattle production that is cruel to animals and destructive to the land, Wild Idea bison meat has a clean, sweet taste with notes of grass and sage that is high in omega 3s.
Through Dan’s vision and Wild Idea Buffalo Company’s affiliation with like-minded ranchers committed to land and animal management best practices, over 150,000 acres of prairie grasslands have been nurtured back to health; where natural agriculture such as grasses, forbs and flowers flourish, and animals thrive is a sustainable eco-system.
If you’re itching to try bison meat but still need some convincing, consider that Wild Idea Buffalo meat has 40% more protein than beef, lower in calories, fat, and cholesterol than chicken or fish, and high in antioxidant Omega 3 fatty acids and vitamin E.
