Artisans Hone Perfection

Skilled craftsmen know the meaning of integrity. It is the measure of quality and the dedication to achieving remarkable that defines the caliber of a true artisan.

Carmen Creek Gourmet Bison is a group of artisans dedicated to creating an exceptionally pure, lean red meat that blends flavor, tenderness and a powerhouse of nutrition in every bite. Our journey begins at our ranches and it doesn’t end until you put your fork down with a big, satisfied smile. At every step, there are checks and balances to ensure our products are being produced with rigorous protocols for ethical animal care, environmental stewardship, consistent premium quality and impeccable food safety.

As an artisan group, we are committed to delivering the promise of a remarkable Carmen Creek Gourmet Bison experience for you – every time in every way. If we haven’t exceeded your expectations, we want to know how we can improve because your satisfaction is the measure of our reputation. That’s why we stand firm behind our guarantee.

Integrity is a People Word

Maybe it’s the combination of big blue skies and wide-open prairies. Something about ranch country inspires creative thinking, grounded by good old-fashioned hard work. It also attracts people for whom integrity is sealed with a handshake.

The artisans of Carmen Creek have been in the bison business for a long time, albeit in different ways. We all share a deep respect for the majestic bison and stewardship of the prairies that support our animals’ natural lifestyle.

Our carefully selected team of skilled, experienced ranchers and a full time veterinarian work together to raise Carmen Creek bison on three beautiful sprawling ranches located in Canada and the United States. “Animal health is our priority,” says Carmen Creek Owner, Joe Ricketts. “We follow Nature’s lead when it comes to raising our bison. It takes about 26 months for a bison to reach maturity and during this time, they live a good life of freedom with ethical care. As ranchers, we wouldn’t have it any other way.”

Our commitment to integrity continues through the strong connections forged between all the links of the Carmen Creek supply chain. The caliber of our processors, packagers, shippers, distributors and retail/foodservice partners is exceptional. We share a passion for creating a unique premium product line that consistently exceeds expectations in terms of taste, tenderness, food safety and superior nutrition. We market a top of the line product for discerning consumers who deserve ultimate value – always.

Somebody once said you can’t buy integrity, but you can earn it.

Words we live by.
