Humane Field Harvest & Processing Video


They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, but a video is worth a million...

In past blog posts we have described and shown detailed images of our field harvest and processing facility, but we wanted to bring you in a bit closer for a full, transparent view.

Jill’s video will transport you to the prairie and will offer a front row seat to our humane field harvest and processing facility. Although this video shows both an animal being put down and the butchery process, it is beautiful and non-offensive.

At Wild Idea Buffalo Co. we believe that it is our responsibility to know where your food comes from, how it is raised and how it dies. By making the earth, animal, human connection, we begin to understand that it is all one, and that caring for one is caring for all. As Dan often says, "It is a prairie communion, that nourishes the earth, the eco-system and us." 

We hope our film educates and brings you closer to real food.

    Compassionately done with conscious and heartfelt attention at every level. A true ceremonial giving and taking in blessings to earth and animal. What do you do with the buffalo fur?? Is it given away, made into rugs, clothes?

    The whole thing was very revealing. Did you notice how the Bison were not afraid. There was no chasing as one would imagine. I suppose that is part of the ritual, not to cause anxiety to the animal. I’m touched by this video in more ways than one.

    Impressive! A true honor to the land, the bison, and all the people that are a part of getting healthy meat to customers. Thank you!

    A co-worker asked me what sort of meals I eat at home just getting to know each other. I was able to answer in a manner he surely couldn’t have anticipated. I will send him this video and share a cut from our recent order. He’s in for a treat; I hope he understands the full import of what you all do for our country. Your grass roots are very much appreciated here in New Hampshire.
