Will be buying more

I am so happy I found you guys. This was great!!!! I live in NY and it's not easy to find good bison. I will not buy from the supermarkets around here. The meat was tender, and beyond delicious. Will be ordering more when this supply runs out. Thank you!
Winnie from Oceanside, NY

Awesome products!

I quit eating meat because of all the hormones and fillers but now I can enjoy healthy quality meat again. Thank you Northstar Bison.

I have tried other sources for bison products and there is NO comparison. The filets are absolutely delicious! Juicy, tender and flavorful.I have also purchased grd bison products and it is the best I have ever had. My entire family gives their thumbs up to the tastiest burger they have ever had! We all say we could eat them every day!! Thanks for all your great products!

Buffalo brats and dogs

We love the Bison hot dogs and brats. They have less fat than regular brats or hot dogs plus they have no added preservatives, nitrates, etc., so they pass the "mom" test! Delicious and easy to make, the hot dogs can be eaten right from the pack or cooked. The brats cook in a very short time. The meat simply tastes "cleaner" than store purchased red meat.

Thanks for your assistance as we stopped in

My wife and I wanted to thank Mary & Linda for all of your assistance last thursday as we stopped in.  You both were great and we appreciate the fact that you helped to save us money not only on our in-store purchase but on future internet orders.  I will definitely pass the word around as to how great you were.  Thanks again.
Rick from Wisconsin

Fabulous Products and Service You Have

We just wanted to let you know what fabulous products and service you have.  We have used another vendor in the past, but your meat products are far superior and delicious and your super-fast shipping is top notch!  We will only order from Northstar Bison from now on.  Thanks so much! April 2013

Ranch Visit

Marielle, I wanted to thank you for the time you spent with Nic and myself on Fri Oct. 17.  Nic had such a good time! I did too!  He is hard to show emotion but i could see by his face that day and in the photos I took how happy he was.  Thank you for sharing your knowledge, enthusiasm and interest in Nic's future.  I was just at Parent teacher conferences and since he returned from our trip he raised his grades in two classes by full letters! He has shared what he learned from you with all three of his agriculture teachers.  They are interested in trying to get the curriculum you mentioned to add Bison to there alternative agriculture class.  We are truly Blessed to have spent the day with you , your family,and  the Bison's too!! Nic asked me to send you a few pictures.  Nic has already been on the National Bison Assc. website!  He put the membership on his Christmas List.      Mary,  Thank you for taking the time to arrange the visit for Nic. I can't thank you enough for the time,  knowledge and kindness your family has shown us.  The day made quiet an impression on Nic. It is so nice to see people taking care of the land and raising a food source they way nature has meant it to be.  As a family with food allergies we can appreciate the efforts to raise a "clean meat" .      Thank You, Sheila & Nic Bauer

Best Bison at Best Price!

The best bison at the best price!  After looking and looking, we came across Northstar and wanted to order meat for a birthday party.  With at least 14 guests, and quite the occasion, we asked Northstar for NewYork Strip Bison and WOW!!  They delivered!  On short notice, even!!  The meat was fantastic, and , again, at a fantastic price!  We recommended Northstar to al our friends and family and will be ordering from them again!  I was please and the bison was the talk of the party!  Thank you, Northstar!  You folkd are awesome!

Bison is Best

You have to love how Northstar packages their meats and deliveries arrive in the timeline they say it will. Service? Northstar is personal and relevant in the rare times I have ever had to contact them. Relevant? They don't hem and haw, they don't say stuff that has nothing to do with your questions. They get to the point and and when it's over you have an answer and a satisfying one at that. Too many businesses have forgotten about or don't care what customer service actually means. Not Northstar, you'ere dealing with PEOPLE not some online or phone robot, and the people demonstrate they care about you as a customer. In the one case where they called us due to not having the exact same size of the cut we ordered, same thing. Straight to the point, offering a solution, which we found satisfying, and just being a pure pleasure to work with.

Bison is Best!

First, my wife and I have ordered just about every cut of bison from Northstar. We're happy for doing so. I've ordered elsewhere before and can only describe what was received as scraps of meat. Portions so small for what you paid for, we never ordered again from that source. Northstar, you get the cuts they say they're selling and could never be seen as scraps. We like everything we've ordered but in a very few cases, certain cuts had a bit more fat than we cared to have. I think it's the same with any large red meat stock. Parts of it is simply going to have a bit more fat than other parts. I have one regret and that's I wish we could afford to order more frequently. Once we found Northstar, we don't shop bison anywhere else. Being retired on a fixed income, I have to say we sure get our money's worth with each order. Thanks Northstar!

Northstar Bison Sells REAL Meat

The biggest thing for my wife & I has been that NorthStar Bison sells REAL meat.  Now that might sound nuts but I mean it.  Not naming names, I can tell you starting 7 years ago, we ordered bison elsewhere.  Never heard of NorthStar at the time.  I'm forced to say what we got was scraps of meat.  Little pieces that they dared to call steaks.  That was that and BYE!.  We did find a nice vendor later specializing in mostly antelope and deer meats, which we liked but preferred bison.  Since finding NorthStar that's how we roll these days.
James W.

Personal Service

A big thing with NorthStar is the personal service.  The vendors have names, they canswer emails and initiate them when necessary.  As a matter of fact, it was an email followed by a phone call that solidified out our loyalty to NorthStar.  They didn't have the exact size cut we ordered so checked to see if two smaller cuts totaling the same weight was acceptable as a substitute.  Right there we new we found our new home as far as online ordering bison, elk etc.

Bison Prime Rib

Bison prime rib - we ordered it twice and loved it.  As soon as we get off our bison ribs addiction, we will order it again.  But right now we have thrice ordered the very meaty bison ribs.  No matter how I barbecue them, they come out delicious.  And I do experiment with different ways to barbecue.    

Best Father's Day Gift

Just received a fathers day present, combination of (bison) burgers and dogs! This was a great gift!!!!!!!!!  I live on the Gulf of Mexico in Florida and usually everthing either comes melted or thawed out.  This came solid as a rock.  I am impressed!!!!   You did a great job for a father and grandfather.   Thanks!  Ward Mullen, Springhill,  FL

Another Loyal Customer

I just got my first order ever shipped to my home in KY. I ordered beef knuckles and have made soup stock from them. They were everything I could hope for - They came frozen and looked beautiful, the are clearly grass fed from the great flavour, and at a very reasonable price for such quality. I will gladly order more from NorthStar Bison in the future! You've won another loyal customer.
Love Ewesofluffy Snyder

OUT of this world Delicious!

Marinated Bison T-bone for 2 hours, then SLOW cooked on the BBQ.  OUT of this world Delicious, Flavor unbelievable.  This is the first time I have had grass fed bison.  Have been buying bison steaks from Whole Foods.  What a difference.  Great Job.  Thanks!!

Oustanding in every way possible

I purchased 3 lbs of Ground Beef and 3 lbs of Ground Round several weeks ago and am finishing the last pound tonight. I wanted to share with you how much I enjoyed your bison. Absolutely outstanding in every way possible. I have shared it on my FB page and will be ordering again soon.  Thank you!

Bone Broth is Awesome!

Simmered and drank 14 oz of the, oily in a good way, just fantastic....makes the chicken bone broth I've been drinking seem pale and weak by comparison, smelled great too.  I feel the power of that large beast. Will be drinking everyday and ordering more. Home run!   I am 67 but do tons of yoga and other workouts so am in excellent shape...feel the effects already,,,not to sound weird but feel warm inside, skin tingling, scalp feels tight in a good way, can tell it's loaded with good stuff...and that's just one dose!...have way more energy than normal right now for an afternoon workout!! great Michelle...very glad I found you guys!!! Keep cooking those bison bones and I will order more soon! Best, Mike

Peaceful Bison Harvest

Dear Lee & Mary, I am sending you this note  of my appreciation for your assistance with my bison.  I and my daughter Megan were impressed with how well Lee managed our situation.  The inspector was also nice.  I was pleased with your check, as Tracey said, she trusted that you folks would be fair and honest.

First Timer

June 28, 2016 I have been trying to get this review done since we received our order from Northstar about a week ago. I ordered bison, elk, and chicken from them. We got bratwurst, ground bison, ground elk, elk and bison steaks and I cannot forget the rabbit. 
The meat is phenomenal! The steaks were moist and very tender. The bison patties for our hamburgers were wonderful. I cannot say enough about how great the chicken is as well. 
The service from this company is exceptional and more than above average. The owner Mary Greace (sorry if I misspelled your name) took my order and helped with my selection based on the fact that we are first time customers and the fact that hubby & I are eating lean and as healthy as possible. 
Their meats are above average as well as their customer service! Our order came the very next day and it did not cost an arm and leg. 
Thank you so much NorthStar Bison and I will be ordering more meat immediately to continue to fill up our freezer.
Oh, yes, I cannot wait until the lamb is ready to be purchased either.  Have not tried the rabbit yet but we know it will be awesome.

Bison Delivered in Perfect Condition

Just got an email from Fed Ex that our bison meat was delivered to our apartment building in Manhattan. It was still frozen and still had some dry ice. I had it in the freezer by 10 am. Thank you for the excellent service.

Weight Loss Success in Men's Fitness April 2017

Hi Sean,
I just wanted you to know that I recently got into Men's Fitness for a weight loss story. And I credit a lot of my weight loss to Bison. I couldn't name NorthStar specifically but I get my bison exclusively from you! It is in the current issue of Men's Fitness.
Here is a copy of the article, maybe you can use it? Help with advertising or marketing or something. I love NorthStar and I promote it all the time!
Thank you, Sean

Great Products & Great Service

Bison order arrived frozen solid. I was down to one package of patties. This is the first time I have ordered other than patties, ground meat, or brats. So far we have enjoyed your Bison as our reorders confirm. We are looking forward to the English Arm Roast. You have great products and are great people to deal with.
Roland Juhnke

Boy, was I mistaken!

Say, I just watched your video and can't tell you how impressed I was! I knew you people were the top of the line for bison but when you see all the steps and care you go thru, well, I just can't say enough about your professionalism. I have been buying for my dogs your raw food and canned (when they are in the kennel when I am on trips) which is unsurpassed. I had stopped buying your meats for my husband and I when Bison became available here thinking that our South Carolina bison next door was as good- boy, was I wrong! The taste and texture of your meats is exceptional, it explodes with good health!! When I run out, I will be back for us again! Lana Cantrell, Georgia

Amazing Pork

I just wanted to let you know that this pork is amazing.  I am so happy to have tried it.  The first thing I made was a Bacon Fried Rice using the Shoulder Bacon Eds with a little of the fat that rendered from it.  It was AMAZING! You are all the best.  I have loved everything so far - the bison (of course), the lamb, & the pork.  I am so happy to have found you:)  Cheers, Haydee

Bison Broth gave me my life back!

I wanted to write this to you because it was so important to me to let you know how my "taking" the bone broth twice a day has made a difference , in my life , really.  I originally placed an order for the buffalo bone broth in hopes to help a stiffness and contracture that I recently began noticing in my right middle finger.  I had developed a "trigger finger" and was looking for something, anything, natural that may help it to feel better and bend easier without pain.  I began first by taking some turmeric spice in a mixture in the morning that seemed to help tremendously right away.  I had been about two months into this turmeric mixture when I ordered the buffalo bone broth from you.  I began taking two heaping tablespoons of the bone broth in a cup of steaming hot water with some organic no salt seasoning once a day for a week or so.  Then  I began taking this bone broth recipe twice a day.  Although I will say, my stiffness/pain in the affected finger is still feeling better, and I am able to do all the work I need to do, I didn't notice a huge difference by adding the bone broth.  However the broth had  an unintended benefit that absolutely changed my life.  (This is kind of embarrassing for me to talk about but I decided to because maybe there is someone else out there like me) I have had a skin condition on my hands my whole life since birth that I have tried pretty much everything to improve and seen many doctors/dermatologists/specialists over the years.  It is a condition whereby my skin on  my palms is quite rough and will tend to crack and peel spontaneously.  I have been told by every doctor that it's just something I will have to live with.  Because I have had this my whole life, I have felt incredibly self-conscious and embarrassed of my hands.  I do everything possible to hide them and have my whole life.  I keep my hands closed at all times, will tend to keep them out of sight as much as possible, I wear gloves as much as possible at work as I work in the operating room, keep them in my pockets, and if I have to point at something when I am teaching in the operating room, I use an ink pen or some object to point to where I'm referring to.  I feel self-conscious when I hold hands with anyone or my patients, and it's been something that has kept me from feeling comfortable wearing rings or nail polish or doing anything to draw attention to my hands.  I am single, never married.  I've stopped trying to go to a manicurist because I'm too embarrassed.   It's been 52 years of this.  (There are tears in  my eyes right now)  After two months of the bone broth, my hands have essentially healed completely.  This has never , ever happened.  I've tried every prescription cream that exists. Nothing ever worked.  I knew they would never get better. And I just gave up.   But now....after approximately a month and half or so.... They do not crack .  They do not peel.  For the last month or two they have been totally healed.  This has never been the case for this long of a period of time.  Ever.   I have never , ever had my hands be completely free of cracking/peeling skin....ever.     Yes, they are still a little rough, but they are no longer red, cracked, peeling or sensitive.  For me this is unbelievable.  I cannot tell you how incredibly wonderful it is..... to be able to take a salt shaker from someone or wear a ring or put on nail polish, give someone a 'high five' , point to something, hand someone something and not worry if someone catches sight of my hands. For the first time, I feel almost 'like everyone else'... I cannot possibly ever thank you enough for making this product available.  I don't know if your  process of stewing the broth and the inclusion of the ACV  makes a huge difference in the yield of healthy collagen in your end product.  I'm not exactly sure what is is in the broth that makes the healing possible.   All I know is ...that.... I don't know how to thank you enough for your integrity in producing your products.  I wake up every morning and look at my hands and put on my  hand lotion and seriously thank God , and I mean truly,  for  the animals themselves, for how you care for your herds, , for the integrity I believe you put into what you offer, and that somehow I stumbled onto your website and found your product.  I'm thinking this as I drink your broth as well. Please , if there happens to be anyone else out there who has maybe, something similar with their skin, I hope you will recommend they give a try to drinking the buffalo bone broth.  It seemed to work in about 1-2 months and continues even now to be working. Thank you Mary for all that your company does.  Please know I can't thank you enough.  

Customer Service above & beyond!

I wanted to Thank you again for replacing my order that was damaged/thawed due to FedEx delays and mishandling. Your customer service was above and beyond on this matter! I just really can't express enough how much it meant to our family that your company replaced the order. Your company is gracious and kind! Thank you again

When I Began to Eat........

"I LOVE NorthStar Bison! I have ordered from them for many years, can't recall how long. When I began to eat meat again, this is where I started. Mary is amazing to help you with recipes and how to cook the bison. Top Notch Company.

Special Place in My Heart......

Ordered Online - Let me tell you, Northstar Bison will hold a special place in my heart. It's hard to get organ meats unless you go directly to the packing place, and the nutrition powerhouse you get from organ meats is phenomenal. I'll definitely be purchasing from Northstar Bison again and I'm so thankful for their approach to raising good quality happy animals and meat!

Whoa Nellie!

 This makes the best meat paddy ever from the Ground Bison Blend! I put a paddy in the oven in a small, covered Corning ware and the taste is fabulous with a robust natural gravy that came from it! If you aren't crazy about liver and heart, this blend with ground bison will definitely change your mind! 
L. Cantrell

Stop the Presses!

I have tried several of the bone broths on the market but this bison makes a hearty, full bodied broth. I got tired of all the spices and veggies added to the others as I figured it really was just hiding the flavor of the bone/meat.  No need to hide any flavor here! This is pure bison delight and you can add whatever you want to it. I drink it straight up, as is! I have also cooked with it, wonderful!
Lana Cantrell

Southeners LOVE their pork!

 I am from Georgia by way of Minnesota now. Pork is on everyone's plate here in the South and we have some great pork. However, this pork is one to write home about, it is the BEST ground pork I have ever eaten, hands down!

Successful Delivery to New Mexico

Our bison order was received on time and completely frozen - and we live in Southern New Mexico. As a long term customer, I can assure others that this is absolutely the best bison available. We have visited the farm/outfit and can share that NorthStar is exactly as advertised. Thank You.

Ethical, transparent, family-owned, and putting the customer first.

Northstar Bison is a quitessential example of what an American company should be:  ethical, transparent, family-owned, and putting the customer first.   Buying products from Northstar has been a pleasant experience. Everything arrives frozen solid (I live in Georgia) and pacckeaged neatly.  I've placed 3-4 orders in total so far, and I don't think there has been a single ounce of meat I was dissatisfied with.  From their wonderful elk steaks to their tasty bison roasts, everything is top notch.  Prices are also competitive, and their website is very suer-friendly.  I even had a question about a certain product and a representative provided me with a comprehensive response within hours. Look no further for high quality, grass-fed meat than NorthStar Bison!  Keep up the good work, guys/gals.
