Sunset Ridge Buffalo Farm is located in north central NC in the Bushy Fork Community of Person County about 7 miles southwest of Roxboro, 35 miles north of Durham and Chapel Hill, and 30 miles northeast of Burlington. We have been raising buffalo since 2001 and our herd now numbers about 120.
American Buffalo (Bison) is lean, slightly sweeter than beef, and has no wild meat taste. Buffalo is a highly nutrient dense food because of the proportion of protein, fat, mineral and fatty acids to its caloric value. The USDA has determined that bison is lower in cholesterol, calories and fat and higher in protein and nutrients than beef, skinless chicken, pork or fish. Bison is heart healthy and is an excellent choice for dieters and health conscious consumers alike.
Our meat is processed, dry aged, vacuum packed, and flash frozen at a local USDA inspected facility.
Our mission is to provide delicious and nutritious buffalo meat to health conscious consumers through internet sales, farmers markets, and from on-farm sales. Our animals are pasture raised on fescue, orchard grass, rye, crabgrass, native plants, hay and haylage. We never feed antibiotics, growth hormones, stimulants or animal by-products.
