In Memory Of Daron White Eagle

Just after the fourth of July Chris White Eagle came into my office and shut the door. He had worked for us, on and off, for six years. Recently, he’d been off – way off. The year before he had gotten mixed up with things that lead him down a dangerous path.

"Time-Out" In The Buffalo Herd

A couple of weeks ago we reminded you of the ingredients of our buffalo meat: Fresh Water, Native Grass, & Pure Sunshine. We thought you might enjoy seeing our buffalo in their natural world. Our herd roams over the prairie much like they did over a thousand years ago, regenerating the earth as they graze naturally.

Meet Our Founding Father

Dan O’Brien is an owner of the Cheyenne River Buffalo Ranch and the founding father of Wild Idea Buffalo Company. 

As a kid growing up in Findlay, Ohio, Dan could be found playing sports or playing outdoors, investigating nature. On a family vacation to the Black Hills of South Dakota when he was twelve, he looked out the car window towards the prairie and said, “This is where I’m going to live someday.”
