It’s officially becoming chili season… which is arguably the best time of the year. So how about we put out a new recipe for chili, using TWO incredibly lean and tasty meats: Elk & Bison!

Our free-range elk meat is 91% lean and raised naturally without the use of antibiotics and hormones. Our Bison is 90% lean and raised responsibly also without the use of antibiotics and growth hormones. Each 4 oz. serving of Ground Elk has only 10g of fat, while each 4 oz. serving of Ground Bison has only 11g of fat. But, believe me, you won’t be able to tell in taste!
