Two Announcements!

Dan and Jill accepted the award on behalf of their family (son Lucas, daughter Jilian, son-in-law Colton), the crew at Wild Idea and the ranchers from whom we source product and who maintain our high standards.

Hello Mister O’Brien
Do you know when this new book will be translated into French ? (my english is too poor to read it in French)
I read, a few years ago , in french,” the rites of autumn” and ” buffalo for the broken heart” and I discovered last month: “Wild Idea”; so I spent my month of july with you , your beautiful family … and your herd of bison. I looked for the “Cheyenne river ranch” on google earth, and I think I found it, and it’s even possible to see the truck slaughterhouse … but not the bisons !!
So I am in a hurry to read more !
I want to taste your meat, Unfortunately it is not possible to send it in France !
I admire your action for ecology, and thank you for all this work to “make our planet great again”
Best regards
