Farmtastic: From the Farm to the Fork

Bison - the Native BeefWhitefeather Meats owes its start to bison, commonly known as the American buffalo, the only member of the bovine (beef) family native to North America.

In 1987 the Perkins Family purchased their first three bison from a rancher in Lodi, Ohio and Whitefeather Farms began. After a lifetime of experience with livestock, including draft horses and dairy cows, we quickly adapted to caring for these incredible animals and grew to love and respect the beasts that dominated the American Plains for thousands of years.

In 1994 Whitefeather Farms relocated to Creston, Ohio and purchased a USDA meat processing facility to become the only bison farm and abattoir, all at one location, in the state of Ohio. Whitefeather Meats was born!

The bison are raised on pasture, free of growth hormones, steroids, or antibiotics. We are a health conscious family and are pleased to provide our customers with the same healthy, all-natural meat we enjoy in our own homes.

Once an important part of the diets of early American settlers and an indispensable staple of the Native people that preceded them, bison have enjoyed a much deserved comeback in the ecology and culture of modern America.  Renowned for their impressive stamina and ability to survive extreme weather conditions, bison truly are animals to admire. These facts alone are enough to perk anyone’s interest, but that’s only a small part of what makes these magnificent beasts so special.

The quality of meat bison provides is superior to any other red meat by nutritional and taste standards. Nutritionally bison comes in with 35% more protein, 70% less fat, 50% less cholesterol, and half the calories of conventionally raised beef. Bison meat is moist, tender, and satisfying. It has no gamey or wild taste, but a pleasantly sweet flavor. Bison are a part of the bovine family, the same family as beef, and although some people think they are related to deer or elk, deer and elk are more closely related to horses than bison.  Bison is also hypoallergenic, and can be eaten by anyone who is allergic to other red meats.

We embrace the philosophy that you are what you eat, and promote bison as the healthiest source of red meat anywhere! Stop in our retail store to see our large selection of retail cuts of bison.
