Who We Are

Wild Idea Buffalo is unlike any other meat company. We began with a vision of actually improving the eco-system of the Great Plains. Our buffalo are raised on the wide open spaces of South Dakota where they eat only the native grasses beneath their feet. They spend their whole lives roaming freely on thousands of acres, and never see a feedlot or slaughterhouse. The result is better lives for the bison, the restoration of over 100,000 acres of the prairie, and sweet, delicious red meat that is actually good for you. Not such a wild idea after all!

Jilian Jones

This will be my third year with Wild Idea Buffalo Co and it has been a wonderful experience to see how the company has grown over the last three years. With the new plant opening last summer things have stayed very busy. Most of my time is spent processing orders, doing administrative work, talking with customers, or managing shipping. It is an incredible experience to be part of something so grand.

When I’m not in the office I’m busy with school, as a part time student at Black Hills State University. I am twelve credits away from receiving my bachelor’s degree in business, and hope to have my diploma by next spring! I married this June, to Mr. Colton Jones. Last summer we were lucky enough to be able to move out to the ranch. We love being on the prairie, with all the animals and nature’s beauty. It keeps us connected to the bigger picture of Wild Idea Buffalo Company and reminds us that what we are doing is important. I am thrilled and honored to be a part of it all!

Thank you all for your support. It is a great pleasure to be able to assist you with your orders and stay connected. I look forward to many more years at Wild Idea, and the opportunity to serve you!
