Bison vs. grass fed beef

Read the entire article on
One frequently sees reports claiming that buffalo meat is a healthier meat than others.  But in most cases it is not.  The nutritional characteristics of buffalo meat, like the meats from all other livestock species, is directly related to what the buffalo eat.  Grain-fed buffalo have the same horrible fatty acid imbalances and vitamin deficiencies as grain-fed cattle, grain-fed chicken, and so on.  Consequently if one is focused on eating right for their long-term health, then they should only eat “grass-fed” buffalo when they dine on buffalo meats.
       Most of the buffalo meat sold in America comes from GRAIN-FED bison.  In fact, we had to look high and low for a buffalo producer who raises them with the same strict no-grain, no-foreign-foods-of-any-kind approach we demand.  We’ve located a couple of them, but the supply is less than we’d like.  But keep in mind that when it comes to nutritional characteristics, grass-fed Bison/Buffalo has no advantages over grass-fed pork, grass-fed lamb, grass-fed goat, or grass-fed beef.  So if you are interested in eating right, take a look at all of our grass-fed meats.  Uniquely some of our buffalo meat comes from Water Buffalo!  There are no distinguishable differences in either the nutrients or the flavor when it comes to grass-fed Bison and grass-fed Buffalo.

Tevya’s Ranch – The Morning After

We had a great bbq last night. The oyster steak has melted in our mouths…….

There were some leftovers, a nice piece of london broil so the following day I took it  to work.  I couldn’t heat the meat in the office and ate it cold. To my surprise, lo and behold, it was delicious! Tevya’s meats have no fat or added antibiotics and the meat tastes good the morning after, even cold.  Don’t take my word for it try it yourselves.

Ordering Up Beef That Roamed the Range



For some steak lovers, their dinner menu is determined by their dinner’s menu.

Pasture-raised, or grass-fed beef is an increasing alternative to grain-fed beef sold in supermarkets and in most restaurants. While all beef cattle eat a grass-based diet for part of their lives, most beef sold in the U.S. comes from animals that spend their last months in feedlots where they are fattened on corn or other grains. The term “grass-fed” beef has come to mean animals that spend their entire lives foraging and eating grass.

Tevya’s Ranch, because it is leaner, and better tasting.

Yesterday’s BBQ

The following is an email from one of out customers:


Dear Tevya’s Ranch:


I have been on a low curb diet for the past 2 weeks and yesterday my wife and kids went out for pizza so I decided to bbq for my dinner.

In pictures, you can see the packages, 1 package of 3 middle check stakes and a package of thin rib eyes (sandwiches).

Let me begin by saying that the price was unreal, 1.38lb for the chuck and 0.78lb for the rib eye.

All I added was a bit of lemon and pepper. Tevyes meats were unbelievably juicy and tasty; as you know words cant describe the taste.

Needless to say, my entire family joined me for supper after seeing the fruits of my bbq.

The best part is that the total cost was cheaper then a pie of pizza and fries.

Yours Truly,

A grateful customer
