About a month ago, we raised our buffalo meat prices. The costs are driven by supply and demand, which affects the market price for buffalo set by the USDA, and also other inflationary costs associated with raising an animal and ending up with a consumer ready, packaged product.
October 10, 2018The end of September is when the meadowlarks begin to gather in flocks of ten, twenty, or more. They are feeling the nights cool and I suppose they are dreaming of warm afternoons in the panhandle of Texas and Oklahoma. I see lots of meadowlarks and when they rise up from the grass ahead of an ATV, or a horse, it barely registers. They are such a part of the grassland of our ranch that I have to slow down and make myself listen for their song. In spring that song seems to spiral upward from every habitat edge between the species of native grasses. In autumn there is a resurgence of the singing, as the photoperiod shrinks to the length of the spring equinox.

For all of us at Wild Idea Buffalo Company, we believe that the buffalo are a conduit for connecting and building bridges where so much has been broken. We are honored to have the opportunity to work with our Native brothers and sisters, as colleagues and buffalo sourcing partners. Our diverse community celebrated Native American Day all weekend. Below are some images of the festivities and the beautiful people that represent it.

August 29, 2018Most of us can agree that our world is in crisis. It seems impossible that politicians can ignore, in addition to many other problems: a warming climate, shifts in weather patterns, a huge decline in species diversity in just our lifetimes, the loss of carbon in our soil, soaring cancer rates, an obesity epidemic, and rampant diabetes. I became aware of this pending crisis in 1970, the year that I graduated from college. I sought shelter in South Dakota, where disaster appeared to be holding off and where “conservation” was not yet a controversial term.
August 24, 2018The likes have been tallied and the judges have deliberated, but it wasn’t easy...as there were so many fabulous photographs! Our new category of “honorable mentions” was to recognize 3 additional winners, but we couldn’t decide, so we increased it to seven! We’re sure you’ll agree when you see!

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.
