Wild Idea Buffalo Co.

Preserving land for wild things has been the focus of Dan O’Brien’s life. Bringing buffalo back to their native homeland on the Great Plains has been at the center of his preservation efforts. In 1997, to help keep his small ranch going and to offer an alternative to the industrialized food system, he started a meat company called Wild Idea Buffalo. The idea was simple: supply delicious, healthy, 100% grass-fed meat to consumers interested in sustainability. The wild idea continues today because of Americans like you who care about the food you eat and the world we share.

Grassland restoration is at the core of the Wild Idea Buffalo Ranch. Our land and animal management practices are as close to nature’s intentions as possible. By caring for the land and giving the buffalo room to roam, the prairie is nurtured back to health. Grasses, forbs, and flowers flourish, providing a sustainable eco-system for all creatures great and small. Dan’s vision of large sweeping landscapes with roaming buffalo herds continues to grow and Wild Idea Buffalo Company is now affiliated with other like mind ranchers, including Native American ranchers and Nature Conservancy herds, positively impacting over 150,000 acres of grasslands.

The Wild Idea ranch is located on the Cheyenne River in South Dakota between the Black Hills and the Badlands National Park. Our 28,000 acre ranch winds along the river and borders the Pine Ridge Reservation and the Buffalo Gap National Grassland. We invite you to the ranch, to see the revitalized bison herds, and to join us at our table.
