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 bison meat direct from the ranch all year long. If you would like to purchase our grass fed and finished bison meat by coming to the ranch, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (971) 720-0462. We can set up an appointment for you to visit the ranch to buy meat.
