Revisiting Spring on the Prairie
In late May, my family and I were fortunate to be able to spend several days on the Cheyenne River Buffalo Ranch, the land that is the heart of Wild Idea Buffalo Co.
Bears & Buffalo
A couple weeks ago, I had the chance to visit one of our sourcing partners' ranch, located along the Rocky Mountain front in Montana. The ecosystem on the Diamond 4D Ranch is still very much intact. Complete with the big predators such as, mountain lions, wolves and bears.

Bringing Back the Beavers

The Dirt on Gut & Soil Health

The Ingredients of Wild Idea Buffalo Meat

Eating Ethically to Save an Ecosystem
As private landholders, we, along with our sourcing partners, are trying to protect these prairie ecosystems for a healthy diversity of both flora & fauna. But we are not running a park; something has to pay the bills. Our humane field harvest helps keep our lands in balance, which in turn supports a healthy, biodiverse ecosystem and a healthy, by-product of buffalo meat. This natural circle of life and food, for both animals and people, is the true meaning of regenerative and is most definitely ethical.
