  1. I don't have an answer to your question, but have you tried Paradise Locker yet?

    1. where are you? my dad has bought some from Foodtown in Long Branch, NJ, thought I don't think they carry it all the time.

      1. Try this:

        Buy local. Anything you buy online will have prices that are criminal. Then they add shipping on top of it.

          Not sure if that site provides kosher bison

          In chicago I have seen bison at Hungarians and jewel in evanston

          1. re: weinstein5

            The site doesn't provide anything other than a list of all the bison farms in the U.S.

            Sometimes you just need to pick up the phone and call around.

            1. re: NotJuliaChild

              A farm that sells kosher-slaughtered bison will advertise that fact. It's not something that they'll do on the side without mentioning it.

        2. Try Kosher Marketplace on the UWS, around Broadway and 92nd or so.

          1. I don't know where you are...but have you tried Best Glatt in Teaneck?

              I live part of the year in New York, and part in Colorado.... In Colorado there is no Kosher Bison, but I will try those places when I come back to New York!

                The first time I had a bison burger was at the kosher deli in Denver. Surely, there must be kosher bison available somewhere. You can ask the deli if they have a supplier.

                  Solomon's had Kosher bison and elk but I haven't seen either in quite a while.
