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 sell our wildly nutritious (and delicious!) bison meat at the downtown Corvallis and the Salem Saturday Farmer’s Markets. We will be at the following markets in 2017:
Salem Saturday Farmer’s Market (on Marion Street between Winter and Summer Streets): May 20; June 3 & 17; July 1 & 15; August 5 & 19; September 2 & 16; and October 7 & 28. Our booth is AX on the first aisle on the east side of the market (off of Summer Street).
Corvallis Saturday Farmer’s Market along the banks of the Willamette River (our booth is on Monroe Avenue, west of 1st Street): May 27; June 10 & 24; July 8 & 22; August 12 & 26; September 9 & 23; October 14 & 21; and November 4, 11, and 18.
