New Hampshire: January 2008 Archives

Today I pulled a buffalo chuck roast from Yankee Farmer's Market out of the freezer for dinner.

Our wide variety of buffalo meat ... DO NOT contain growth hormones, stimulants, or antibiotics." They also tout the health benefits of buffalo, which include: 2.42 grams of fat per serving (less than chicken); 1 gram of saturated fat; low in calories, cholesterol, sodium, and protein; high in iron, protein, and Omega 3's and 6's.

The Farmers open their farm in Warner, NH to the public every weekend, and their farm store is also open during the week (closed Wednesdays). If you don't want to make the drive, you can order online with just one day transit time within New England.

They also sell elk, ostrich, venison, chicken, turkey, and pork -- but it seems that their true love is bison (the scientific name of the American Buffalo).
