Nutritional Beneftits

Grass fed Bison packs a nutritional punch!

Bison has a long history of sustaining our region’s inhabitants. Bison meat is lean, high in protein, iron, and B vitamins. 

“Amino acids are well known as the building blocks for protein and bison delivers all of the essential amino acids our bodies need. The protein-related role of amino acids is critical in support of our over-all health including a healthy nervous, detox, and digestive system and especially the health of our immune system. Bison also has a high ratio of healthy fatty acids like Omega-3.” (www.bisoncentral.com)

Unlike the beef and lamb industries, federal regulations for bison prohibit the use of growth hormones or antibiotics used to promote growth.

Bison is said to have a sweeter, richer flavor than beef, and because it is so lean, it is recommended to cook bison using low heat and longer cooking times. Discover recipes to cook your bison meat!
