Ghosts of the Great Plains


The Cheyenne River Ranch is located between the Black Hills National Forest and Badlands National Park. This area was a Native stronghold. In "Ghosts of the Great Plains", Dan looks back and explains the history of our area and the Native Americans, and how we are moving forward to heal the land and rebuild relationships by bringing back the buffalo.  We hope you give this important short (30 min.) film a watch. 

This film was produced by our Wholesale Partners at "Natural Grocers". They carry our 100% grass-fed/grass-finished, humanely field harvested buffalo meat. Their stores are located throughout the United States and you can find them here

    thank you for your passion. Perfect Earth Day Reflection for us all. when people ask me why I support your ranch and why bother to spend the extra money to eat this flesh… this explains why, heal our bodies, heal the planet, do what we can when we can.. loved the liver/ground bison… big hit… one day soon in the not so distant future, I see some goats..

    A very poignant, true, sobering, wake-up call. Thank you for living and being an example that must be followed.

    I know the Wild Idea story and have followed your emails since I’ve choose to purchase your meat for the past 2+ years.
    This short film gives me some new insights but I believe it just strengthens my idea to follow your idea for my meat purchases. Thank you for not waivering in your beliefs on how to harvest, I hope I follow similar beliefs as I hunt game for descent death and respect for the animal.
