Northstar Bison is a family owned and operated, vertically integrated enterprise, that was birthed in September 1994 with the purchase of 2 young bison from Bluemound State Park in Luverne, Minnesota, to fulfill a life-long dream. Shortly after, in January of 1995, we added six bred cows which contributed to the growth of the herd to 14. During that time, the decision to market the meat directly was made and formed the distribution division. In pursuit of learning how to raise and produce the highest quality of meat, we realized that 100% grassfed bison was the best all around; good for land, good for the animals and good for people. This became our motto. We determined to make quality product and excellent customer service our primary commitment to our customers. Today, the ranch consists of 1200 acres of owned and rented grasslands in Northwest Wisconsin and East Central Minnesota, where approximately 600 bison are grazed under Holistic Resource Management principles.
