Bison

While buffalo are traditionally associated with the rolling plains, these regal animals can now be seen in the mountainous pastures of Virginia and West Virginia. Bison products have gained recognition for being leaner and lower in saturated fat, creating a niche market that local producers are exploring. Our facility is designed to accommodate the specialized needs associated with handling and processing bison.

Basic Bison Cuts

Our Basic Package has traditional bison cuts much like our standard beef cuts. With this package, the ground bison is packed in chubs and steaks come two to a package.


Value-Added Processing

We offer value added beef products including bison burger patties, smoked bratwursts, brisket, and bacon (yes, bison bacon).
