Buffalo - MSP
We're looking to buy half of a buffalo. Any ideas where we'd look? Thanks in advance!
I'd start with Eichten's Hidden Acres in Center City, MN. They supply the buffalo for many Twin Cities stores and restaurants.

And I have a pound of buffalo in my freezer from Lofton Ridge, Chisago City. I think I bought it at Farm In The Market (Midtown Global Market) - you could give them a call to see where they get their buffalo. Or see this web site for Lofton Ridge's contact info:
For more possibilities, see the Minnesota Grown directory. Wonder of wonders, it's searchable online! (So now I don't need to lug around their printed directory at the State Fair!)

Big Woods Bison sells at the St. Paul Farmer's Market. I saw a sign at their booth once that said they sell 1/4 and 1/2 buffalo packages.
