We strive to make discerning use of inputs, maintain excellent land stewardship practices, and produce high-quality products for your household.
Bison roam the 64 rolling acres, nestled between ridge lines in Terra Alta. At 2,200 ft in elevation, a healthy upward draft keeps the grass cool, the snow heavy, and the springs plentiful. These animals are grass-fed and finished. Riffle Farms is committed to providing their customers with an ethically raised, healthier meat option. Bison rivals chicken in fat content, surpasses salmon in protein content, and has more omega-3 fatty acids than beef.
