Bison Basics Bison has fewer calories, less fat, and more protein per ounce than ground beef! It's rich in iron, zinc, vitamin B12, omega 3's, and selenium.
In comparison to beef, bison has a lighter, coarser texture and tastes a little sweeter. This lean meat is not gamey and can easily be substituted for a recipe that calls for ground beef. Try some today!

Hey Folks! We are now collecting donations for a food drive to support the Food Bank Network of the SLV. Help us stock food pantries across the SLV with non-perishable local foods when you order from the Valley Roots Food Hub.
We are so sorry about the previous confusion on the online market. We hope the distinction is more clear between donation and personal purchase moving forward. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
