We have been loyal customers since 2001 and would highly recommend Straight Arrow Bison Ranch to everyone! I'm an amateur chef and my wife a physician so we're both concerned that the quality and healthiness of what we eat is top-notch, and the bison meat from Straight Arrow is the finest available.--Brent H., Grand Island, NE.
Straight Arrow Bison Ranch of Broken Bow, Nebraska
Straight Arrow Bison Ranch is your source for all-natural*, grass fed** buffalo steaks, burger, roasts, stew meat, summer sausage, hot dogs & brats, jerky, soup bones, healthy dog treats, and many other wonderful cuts of lean and healthy bison. We also sell pasture-raised chickens, eggs from outdoor chickens, and home-made whole wheat breads. To more fully utilize the whole animal, we sell bleached buffalo skulls, tanned hides, and soap made from buffalo tallow (fat).*All-natural means they do not receive any vaccinations, hormones, growth stimulants, or antibiotics and they are not surgically altered in any way. **Grass-fed means they are not fed any harvested grains. They graze on grass their whole life. When grass in the pasture is not sufficient they are given grass hay.

Healthy Land and Healthy Animals
We are a family owned business dedicated to caring for the land as we depend on it to provide us with healthy animals (i.e. delicious meats) to optimize your health and wellness. Our bison are raised in their natural habitat on the plains of central Nebraska with plenty of fresh air, sunshine and clean water. The herd grazes on native grasses year-round, supplemented with prairie hay when the grass is not sufficient to meet their needs. Calves are left in the herd until they are ready for harvest. They are kept healthy by adding apple cider vinegar to their water source which acts as a natural parasite control and enhances their digestive and immune systems
Good Eating and Good Health
Healthy animals mean healthier meats for you, containing all the essential amino acids and essential fatty acids and many essential vitamins and minerals. As for taste, it's as good or better than the finest beef.
The bison are field-harvested in the fall after they have gained weight all summer from the green grasses. This means they are not rounded up, sorted, or trucked prior to slaughter, thus no stress.* Our bison processing is done in a USDA inspected mobile meat processing unit and packaged in a facility with verified HAACP program. Our products are packaged in clear plastic wrap to stay fresh in your freezer for many months. We have thousands of satisfied customers from nearly twenty successful years in business! *Stress prior to slaughter results in the release of stress hormones which can cause toughness or off-flavors in the meat.
