We raise 41 bison on 600 acres and slowly restablishing native grasses to
for forage and wildlife habit.
> I won't need certification to sell my bison . It is the restiction on
not the cost I am concern about.
> I will not need to get my pasture, grain and hay certified.
> My marketing push is to connect to the people directly and share
with them our growing, feeding, and processing practices.
Sharing our goals thrrough economic balance , and environmental soundness
I understand that the new organic minimum standard will not allow a
promote their product as better than another . So in the end the goverment
dictate what can be said about organics at the lowest level of organic
We will not become certified organic however will adopt the practices of
producers and market ourselves as enviromental friendly. We attempt to
our customers on our practices of sustainability, ethical treatment of
and enviromental sensitive practices.
Wish the best to all those would struggle to save our planet.....
