What does 'Humanely  Ranch Raised' mean?

1. At the Strawman operation  we take great care in raising our bison herd in a low stress lifestyle, keeping in mind the quality of life for our animals, the impact our ranch and process has on the environment and the impact our actions have on the quality of our finished bison meat product.

The following is our promise to you.

3. Our bison have lots of room to roam, graze and grow. The space we give our bison herds allow them to remain wild and live on their instincts according to their own social hierarchies. Throughout the course of their lives, our bison are minimally handled, respected and humanely treated.

The meat we sell across the province is the same meat we put on their own table and share with our family and Friends.

5. With the new edition to our Beautiful 2000 square foot commercial kitchen we do everything we can to ensure that the meat we produce is with us throughout the entire cycle from ranch to plate.
