Image
Lean Meat Options for the Conscientious Consumer. Through our work with Good Life Premium Meats and NebraskaBison.com, we have established a commitment to making top quality, naturally raised meats more widely available throughout the United States.
Each of the three meats we now offer: Premium Naturally Raised Elk, 100% Grass-Fed Organic Beef and Premium Naturally Raised Bison are held to the highest standards of quality.
To help introduce you to each of these options, we've highlighted some key points for each of the three meats in this post below. 
NUTRITION Obviously when we're talking about lean and healthy meats and proteins, nutrition is going to be a good place to start. Each of these meats (particularly the Elk and Bison) are of course considered to be among the leanest meats available. However, let's go ahead and take a look at how they compare nutritionally among themselves.

Choosing the Main Course for your Holiday Meals

Image
The Big Three: Thanksgiving, Christmas & New Years Dinners Whatever your traditions are throughout the final months of each year, I think one thing that we all share is that sometime over the months of November and December, we all gather with family or friends for a special meal -- or in some cases, perhaps, many.

In my family, deciding what is on the menu for Christmas dinner is a democratic process. My mom shoots us all an email (usually before any of the rest of us are even thinking Christmas yet) asking what we want for Christmas dinner. It's usually something non-traditional, usually an enormous feast, and always delicious.

Ranch owners, Randy and Jane, have a more solid tradition and each Christmas, they enjoy a Bison Prime Rib among their family.

Whatever your traditions are, if you find yourself in a spot wondering what you'll be serving for a family dinner this holiday season, I've put together a little guide to give you some information and ideas. We have s…

Getting more out of Bison: Spinning Hair into Yarn

Bison Hair: Discovering another way to make the most out of bison ranching. If you've ever been around bison in the spring our summer. You may have noticed something that seemed a little odd: the bison seemingly losing their hair. Although it looks a little bizarre, it is actually quite normal for the American Bison to be shedding hair in the spring and summer months, and here's why:

Each year, bison grow thick, warm winter coats. Living in the harsh climates of the great plains, bison grow these coats to keep them warm throughout the winter snow and winds. In fact, these coats are so thick, that it has been observed that snow can fall onto the bison without even melting from body heat.

However, in the summer months, these coats are no longer needed and so in the spring and summer, you'll find bison shedding these coats. Hair will be attached to fence lines and throughout the fields.

The cool thing is, if you have the time and desire to put in the work, great things can c…

40 Facts About our New National Mammal – Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about Bison | Plus a Few Adorable Pictures.

Image
40 things you might not know about the American Bison, our new national mammal I was first introduced to the mighty American Bison somewhere around second grade in my elementary school classroom as groups of us kids gathered around the couple (very old-fashioned) Macintosh computers in our classroom in order to play our favorite floppy disk game "The Oregon Trail".

Hunting was everyone's favorite part of this game, and the bison was the prize you always aspired to as it was the biggest and easiest target, yielding your trail party the most food. During the middle of the game, those 200 lbs. the hunting party was able to take to the wagon could be critical in continuing game play.

I learned only a few things about the great American Bison during those game sessions: that the bison always weighed over 2000 lbs. and that these big lumbering beasts made easy targets for hungry hunters. (Turns out both of those aren't really true... but we'll get to that!…
