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.

  • Incredible! As I write a blog post about your process, I decided to check on some facts about your practice and this post came up! Straight out of the field! still warm! Very nice! I would have chosen a different sound track but the images are great! I became a fan for life and I can’t stop talking about this company.
