The fact that samples of our Buffalo Jerky disappear faster than we can get them into the office is testament to their delicious, savory flavor and hearty texture. But we’re just as excited about the conservation role our partnership with Wild Idea Buffalo plays in the Great Plains. By supporting ranches raising free-roaming, grass-fed buffalo, we’re helping native grasses—and all the species that depend on them—recover. In other words, our Buffalo Jerky is food you can feel good about, in more ways than one.

Conservation

"Instead of waiting for some miraculous, high-tech solution to bail us out of our climate-change disaster, the real miracle turns out to be simply working with nature instead of against it. Our grasslands, and the soil beneath them, might just save the world." - Yvon Chouinard
