Welcome to Green Fields Bison Ranch!
Green Fields Bison Ranch is a grass-fed bison ranch nestled in the Willamette Valley on the edge of the coastal range in Oregon, a half hour west of Salem. We enjoy our lives here in this beautiful valley where each day brings new adventures raising our bison.
We value our animals and work hard to raise them humanely and naturally. They are amazing creatures. At the end of the day when the work is done, we enjoy going out into the pastures and sitting among them, listening to them as they graze the green fields. We “come into the peace of wild things” as Wendell Berry says in his poem, “The Peace of Wild Things”.
Our goal is to raise the bison with a low stress handling approach. We work with their instincts instead of working against them. We practice patience when moving them to a new pasture by opening a gate and allowing them to move through it when they are ready to do so.
We value the task of providing our customers with a healthy, wholesome and “wildly nutritious” grass fed bison meat that is not only good for you but also good to eat. Jo Robinson says in her article “Grass-Fed Basics” that
“a major benefit of raising animals on pasture is that their products are healthier for you. For example, compared with feedlot meat, meat from grass-fed beef, bison, lamb and goats has less total fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, and calories. It also has more vitamin E, beta-carotene, vitamin C, and a number of health-promoting fats, including omega-3 fatty acids and “conjugated linoleic acid,” or CLA.”
We feel it is a privilege to be raising these iconic and majestic creatures.
We have some exciting news! We are selling our bison meat at the Beaverton Farmer’s Market. To accomodate this new farmer’s market our market dates have changed for the remainder of 2017. Here are the new dates and locations where you can find our wildly nutritious meat:
We will be at the Beaverton Farmer’s Market on September 23 and 30, October 14 and 28, and November 11th. The Beaverton Farmer’s Market is on SW Hall Blvd., between 3rd and 5th Streets. We will be in a different booth space each time we are there since we are weekly vendors. If you can’t find us, check at the Market Manager booth and they can direct you to us.
We will be at the Corvallis Saturday Farmer’s Market along the banks of the Willamette River (our booth is on Monroe Avenue, west of 1st Street): September 16, October 21, and November 4 and 18.
We will be at the Salem Saturday Farmer’s Market (on Marion Street between Winter and Summer Streets): October 7. Our booth is AX on the first aisle on the east side of the market (off of Summer Street).
Come visit us in Beaverton, Corvallis and Salem for healthy, lean bison meat!
