Rapid City area’s largest selection of humanely raised local meats.
Your purchase in our meat department supports local ranching families here in South Dakota who take pride in raising healthy, high-quality beef in a responsible manner. All of our local ranchers raise free-range, grass-fed beef and bison who are never given antibiotics, steroids, or growth hormones. It’s kinder to the animals, better for the planet, and healthier for you!
Wild Idea was started in 1997 in an effort to restore the health and biodiversity of South Dakota’s Great Plains through the use of their original stewards: bison. Their bison are allowed to roam wild and eat nothing but prairie grasses, living the lives nature intended for them and restoring the health of the prairie through responsible management.
Tom and Ruth Neuberger have been raising free-range chickens, ducks, geese, and turkeys in eastern South Dakota for almost 40 years. They are beloved regulars on the Sioux Falls farmer’s market scene, and for good reason! They are proud of the quality of their birds–so much so that they will not sell them to us in winter, since chickens cannot truly be free-range during South Dakota’s toughest time of the year! Be on the look-out for their turkeys in our freezer during Thanksgiving and Christmas, and their chicken products anytime we can arrange a delivery in the warmer months.
Evergreen Ranching raises heritage-breed Criollo cattle (the ancestor of breeds such as the Texas Longhorn) and bison on conservation properties that are managed with wildlife preservation as their goal. Like all of our local beef, their animals are never given antibiotics or hormones and are 100% grass-fed for their entire lives.
