{{ Video }} Why I Eat Bison Meat

As part of an effort to help you get to know the people behind a little better, I've put together this short video introducing myself and explaining my decision to eat bison meat, making it a large part of my lifestyle and diet.

All of us at (all 3 of us - Randy, Jane and myself) all pride ourselves on our work, our product and the company we've created. I hope this video, and the others that help show the faces behind the company will help you to get to know us and our mission a little better.

After all, we want you to know as much as possible about where you're food is coming from and the people behind that. We think that's important. Getting to talk to our customers face to face is one thing that we really enjoy about doing things like Farmers Markets, but something that is quite a bit trickier when it comes to our online sales.

So I want you to know that we are accessible. We try to be as open and helpful as possible through this blog, our website and social media accounts, and if there are any questions you have that are still unanswered, or if you just feel more comfortable talking to someone directly, you can always give us a call at 888-665-8757. We look forward to hearing from you!


Hi I'm Stacy with I'm in charge of marketing and customer experience for our bison meat products here at Nebraska Bison and I'm the person you'll reach if you ever call our customer service line or if you get an email from us to follow up on an order or a question, that's probably from me.

I wanted to take some time today as part of our new video series to share with you my experience with bison meat and why I choose to make it the main protein source in my diet.

Although most of what we do here at is online, we do participate in a few local farmers markets and take part in some trade shows as well. At events like this, I run into a lot of people that I get to talk with about our product and some of these people already know about bison and eat it regularly. I meet some people who've tried it once or twice on vacation, but don't really make it a main part of their diet, and I run into some people who have maybe heard about bison but have never tried it. 

So it's not uncommon for me to get the question: "So, do you eat bison meat?" or "Do you like the taste?" In fact I get that question a lot. So, I thought I'd make a video to give you all my answer. 

Honestly, I eat bison all the time. It started out slowly with bison burgers which I easily fell in love with. I love burgers anyways. When you cook a bison burger just right, it just doesn't get any better than that.

But through my job here, it quickly morphed into experimenting with a wide variety of dishes that I'm able to utilize bison in. Basically, I use it in everything that I used to use beef in, and i even add it to recipes that I wouldn't even put any meat in before, particularly like with things like pasta.

On a side note, if you would like to see all the ways I use bison in my own cooking, follow @nebraskabison on Instagram. Every time I cook with bison, I post at least one picture there. 

For me, taste is king. I don't generally eat things I don't like. However, another big deal for me with bison are the health and nutritional benefits that come with eating bison. It's my preference to cook over going out or getting take-out. I like to know exactly how my food was prepared and I like to know what ingredients go in it, using simple ingredients whenever I can. I don't adhere to any particular diet, my food philosophy is moderation and preparing meals at home. With bison I don't feel guilty about eating or serving it.

Bison is so lean. You can tell that when you buy it and when you're cooking it. In fact with our ground bison it's not unusual to not even need to drain grease when you're browning it. 

But in addition to being lean, it is high in protein and rich in nutrients. You need less of it to become full. Bison are raised without hormones, without steroids and without antibiotics. And at least in our operation, they are raised by two people, Randy and Jane Miller, you can read all about them on our website, who care about the animals and the land they live in. For the most part, the bison are left to keep to themselves. They are minimally handled and given plenty of room on the ranch to roam and live. 

So to wrap up, this is why i eat bison: it's lean it's healthy, it tastes awesome and it's raised well. 

So if you've had any lingering questions about the benefits or about why you should eat bison too, I hope this helps to clear them up. If you have any other questions, feel free to give me a call at 888-665-8757 and I'll be more than happy to talk with you. You can also email me at If I'm not available to answer the phone when you call, just leave a message and I'll get back to you. or if you're ready to try bison for yourself and want to place an order, all you have to do is visit to start shopping for the cuts you want. I hope you'll enjoy bison as much as I do.
