Buffalo Meat

The best tasting meat just got easier to get!

We offer our great tasting buffalo meat two convenient ways!

Method #1:This method is available to customers who are interested in purchasing a whole, half or quarter of a buffalo at great savings. With this option you can get packaged meat for as low as $11.70 per pound! You only pay for what you get. No added butcher fees. No risk of yield loss. No wondering just what you really paid per pound for your meat, as is the case with so many other suppliers. Click here to see the details. You will be directed to our meat company at www.TheBuffaloGuys.com.
Note: For pure grass-finished (grass-fed) buffalo meat check out our sister website at www.BeaverCreekBuffalo.com.

Method #2: This method is available to folks who can come out to the ranch and pick a whole buffalo up themselves. If you can do your own processing this is the most cost-effective method to get some great meat in your freezer. You will need to arrange your own processing and be able to transport a field dressed animal. We do these for as low as $3.25 per pound! 'Grass-finished’ grass-fed or grain-offered. Click here to see the details.


Method #2 Details - $3.25/lb:

This option is very simple. You bring your pick-up or small trailer and we will dispatch, field dress and load your buffalo for you.

The buffalo will be of very good eating quality, healthy and something that will provide you with many enjoyable meals.

You pay only for what the animal weighs and the dispatching, field dressing and loading is included in the price.

After we dispatch the animal we will lift it with our tractor and weigh it with our digital scales. This is the pay-weight and you will pay at the rate of $3.25 per pound. If you want a grass-fed only animal we charge $3.50 per pound.

We then lower the animal and field dress it. After this is finished, we use the tractor to lift it into your vehicle or trailer and you are on your way.

You provide your own packaging arrangements and we provide the best eating buffalo meat you can get! (We can provide you with the names of several good local butchers).

(add 8.75% KS sales tax for KS orders or KS pick-up)

A few other options include:

Full skinning - No charge (includes carcass wash down)

Caping and skinning - $100 (includes carcass wash down)

Salt hide and/or cape - $10.00

Quartering or Halving - No charge

If you do the shooting - $100.00

Delivery to Ben-Lee Processing in Atwood, Kansas - $75.00

The animals that we use for these typically weigh between 700 and 1100 lbs. and will yield about 40-45% of their live weight in boneless, packaged meat. The meat will be of the best quality and will make for great steaks and roasts. Don't forget that you get the hide and head too! We can accommodate your request for an animal of a specific size (within about 100 lbs.).

We require payment in cash before the animal is loaded.

We do these year-round so call us anytime to set up your visit! Click here to send us an email or call us at 1-785-899-9274.



The buffalo dressed out to 604 pounds and I received 447 pounds in the freezer! I've never gotten so much meat from a 2 year old. The butcher said it was the best buffalo he has seen in a long time! The taste of the buffalo is excellent! Go ahead and use my email as a testimonial.

We are sure the taste and quality of our meat will exceed your expectations. If you haven't tried buffalo, you're in for a treat. Buffalo has a sweet and juicy flavor with a mild but hearty taste. Its' taste is most similar to beef but is in a class all of its own. Gourmet Magazine described buffalo meat as “Sweeter and cleaner than beef” December 2002.

Buffalo meat is full of satisfying red meat flavor yet it has less fat, calories and cholesterol than extra lean beef, pork and even skinless white chicken breast! (see table) We don't feed animal byproducts, use growth hormones or sub-therapeutic antibiotics. Not only does it taste great but it's good for you!

The Environment
We raise our animals in accordance with the standards and practices developed by The Buffalo Guys, LLC. These standards and practices are designed so as to minimize the possible negative environmental aspects while maximizing the many ways buffalo benefit the land. Click here to be directed to The Buffalo Guys web site for a more in-depth description of The Buffalo Guys growing standards and philosophies.

Basic Growing Standards
These are the standards that the Homestead Ranch employs.

  • Growth hormones are never used.
  • In the rare event that an animal must be treated with antibiotics the animal will not enter our meat supply.
  • Animal byproducts are never fed.
  • Free Range Raised . Our buffalo are raised primarily on native range. Grains are fed, free choice, prior to slaughter to assure consistent, year-round, high quality meat. Our buffalo are never force-fed.
  • Feeding pastures not feed lots. All feeding areas produce a green and growing crop for a minimum of 60 days per year. This ensures a healthy animal and healthy meat while safeguarding the environment from the hazards of confinement feeding. By doing this, our buffalo are not forced to live in or create the filth of a feedlot.
  • We consciously try to buy grains and hay that are grown organically or as near to organic as possible.
  • Our lands are monitored annually. This information is used to identify trends in ecosystem health and to protect the environment.
