Four Creeks Bison Co. is a father-son operation in northwest Illinois, about 15 miles east of Galena. We’re third and fourth generation farmers at this location and we have been raising bison here for more than fifteen years. Our decision to farm bison was inspired by our land-ethic and a desire to try something different. Off the farm we each do our own thing, but all day everyday, we’re farmers and foodies committed to producing as well as eating exceptional food.
We’re convinced that the quality of our products is rooted in the land as well as the species and in order to maintain a natural advantage, our herd is managed non-intrusively, without antibiotics or growth hormones. With plenty of room to roam, our animals graze on a variety of Illinois grasses and are wintered with hay made exclusively from the same. The herd also enjoys some occasional apples, hand-picked and hand-fed, from the old orchard on the farm.
We know good food doesn’t mean much unless you have someone to share it with. Four Creeks Bison Company is committed to bringing quality meat to anyone and everyone interested in eating healthy, naturally, or sustainably. Although we believe that meat doesn’t always need to be something special, boy can it ever be. We’ll help you bring unique and nutritious dishes to your table by sharing what our family has learned over the years.
