Looking where to buy bison steaks online? At HarvestBox Meats our local bison farmers are committed to raising their animals naturally. At Regal Bison Company they raise grass-fed bison for naturally flavorful and tender meat that can be used in any red-meat recipe.


Naturally Raised and Sustainable

United States department of Agriculture regulations do not allow bison to be raised using growth hormones. The National Bison Associations code of ethics prohibits the feeding of sub-therapeutic antibiotics to bison, crossbreeding with cattle, cloning, in-vitro fertilization or other artificial reproduction practices. Additionally the code of ethics requires members to respect and help conserve our national and cultural heritage while striving to improve the environment and the quality of life within.

Heart Smart Meals

Buffalo steaks and buffalo meat is quickly becoming America’s hot trend. Bison meat is a nutrient dense food because of the proportion of protein, fat, minerals, and fatty acids to its caloric value. Compared to beef, chicken, and even wild-caught salmon, bison meat is lower in fat and cholesterol. Bison steaks that are available for home delivery are even higher in protein, iron, and Vitamin B-12 than beef. Buying bison meat online has steadily increased over the years because people have discovered that bison meat is not only delicious, it is healthy, environmentally friendly, and through HarvestBox Meats it can be delivered right to your home.


Cooking With Buffalo Meat

Since bison is lower in fat than other red meats, it is easier to overcook. Ground Bison meat should be cooked to an internal temperature of at least 160 degrees. Buffalo roasts and steaks should be cooked to an internal temperature of 145 or 160 degrees. Oven temperature should be around 275 degrees for a grass-fed bison roast. Expect bison steaks to cook in one third the time of a beef steak. Grass-fed bison steaks are best when cooked rare to medium to maintain the moisture and flavor of the meat.
