Where Our Buffalo Roam & How They Are Raised


Did you know that 90% of the bison raised for food in this country and in Canada are raised in the cattle feed-lot model? Did you also know that confining animals and feeding them a high acid diet, such as grains & corn, make those animals more susceptible to caring dangerous forms of E. coli? After a recent recall on bison products from OTHER brands/producers, we received calls from concerned consumers.

We want to confirm that at Wild Idea Buffalo Company we can’t imagine confining our buffalo or not allowing them to have the freedom to roam throughout their lives. We also go beyond that and insist on dignity in death with our practice of a humane field harvest. We always want to offer you complete transparency in where the bison meat you consume comes from and how it is raised.

Our regenerative, large landscape ranching model is rooted in sustainability for all creatures. By taking care of the land, the land takes care of us and provides a healthy 100% grass-fed/grass-finished red meat alternative for caring consumers like you. 

Rest assured that the ingredients in our meat are simple: fresh water, prairie grass and pure sunshine. Plus, this year... a little sweet clover.

We hope you enjoy scenes from around the ranch and revel in the life our buffalo live on the diverse prairie in our latest video.

    Absolutely beautiful video! Wish our “front yard” looked like that! Thanks to all the Wild Idea family for going the extra mile to care for the land and it’s creatures. We are very happy to be dedicated customers of you and have been more than pleased with all our bison meat purchases!

    Jeannette – We are required to have identification (ear tags) on our animals in order to graze them on the Buffalo Gap National Grasslands. This does require us to put them in a corral, which we do as gently as possible.

    Jane – The white/grey is mud/dust/dirt. We have had a lot of rain – so mud is everywhere, but they also like to roll in dry wallows to dust themselves. This they do to keep bugs off, or to scent themselves, or to rub off fur.
