In the Buff

In celebration of World Photography Day, I've put together a collection of snapshots of what I am privileged to witness when in the buffalo herd. I hope you enjoy a short little timeout in this current state of uncertain times. Peace and Buffalo Love Around.

I never realized that the female buffaloes had smaller horns.
Great pictures as always, and enjoyed the shot of you taking picture too!
I put you and Dan and all your dear ones in the arms of God.
Love, Don

Are the Old Bulls that are unproductive harvested?
If so what are the costs etc.
If not do you know a rancher that does ?

I am a long time purchaser of your products, and love the way you make someone in Seattle seem so connected to the Bison and the plains. Thanks for the great pictures and commentaries. A visit is on my bucket list when we can travel more freely again.

Beautiful photos, Jill. You have had some dramatic weather, I’d say! And it looks like the grass is not nearly as high as last year.

Once again thank you for sharing your stunning images. There is nothing quite like seeing them in their home range. I have always been drawn to these marvelous creations.

Beautiful photos. Thanks for sharing these. I hope someday I will take a long road trip including the Dakotas and get to see your bison ranch and meet the people who market such good steaks

Your love and respect for the bison and all the beings you photograph shine through in every picture you take.
I cannot bring myself to turn the page of your 2020 calendar because I adore the January picture. Many thanks!

Enjoy your photography, Jill. Viewing them makes me feel more connected with the buff, and the mission of sustainability. I appreciate being able to eat healthy with no guilt.
Thank you,

Your humane harvest has been key to my purchase of your products – justifying the cost of shipping to California/buying enough not to incur the shipping charges. As you have grown and added sourcing partners, it is difficult to think that these same humane harvesting standards are being followed by your sourcing partners. Your ‘process’ was value driven, not profit driven.

So while I am happy to see your business grow, I am saddened to think that you are losing the diffrentiator for those of us who are reluctant meat eaters – willing to pay the price for meat we can eat and serve our family. with the nutritional benefits it provides, without thinking we have caused undue suffering to the animal who provided it to us.

Absolutely stunning! Thanks for all that you do and hugs to my home state! Peace and buffalo love to all.

Absolument magnifique, merci.

These are great Jill!! It takes a patient photographer to get those kinds of shots!

Ben – We do not harvest the older bulls for our meat supply and we do not do hunts.

Brenda – ANYTIME we harvest animals for food it is done humanely in the pastures where the bison are grazing. Our moveable abattoir and our team of skilled butchers go to them. We will NEVER change our standards and move away from humane field harvest. We do appreciate that this is important to you and we thank you for your support.

I am so much in awe of the beauty of the landscape and these animals. Super photos! Thank you for bringing such a valuable product to the market, and the education that comes along with it.

If my dad could have been much less citified, there’s the outside chance instead of the “birds and bees” talk he tried his best to get across, I might have heard an antelope and bison talk and become a bit better grounded in more relatable facts of life. Great pictures of the graphics of grasslands you all steward so expertly.
