Well, we are now officially almost a full month into the new year, and we have taken the past few weeks to gather our thoughts to summarize and share our 2021 with you – because you are the reason we are here!
This past year marked the 4-year anniversary of our ranch and the 2nd year of our meat business. It may not sound like a long time, but it has felt like a decade, namely because of the close relationships we have built with family, friends, and supporters like you.
Take a look at some of this year’s highlights and thoughts from the BLB team!
THOUGHTS FROM THE BLB TEAM
Austin: repeat customers; knowing that we provided a product, service and relationship that had you coming back for more!
Kyle: seeing the company grow and receive recognition from publications and interviews to being added to restaurant menus
Jessi: being able to share my love and awareness for bison through various food and agricultural platforms
Biggest Hurdle to Overcome:
Austin: army worms at the ranch (we don't wish these on anyone) & materials inflation
Kyle: launching a new program without the proper marketing & customer foundation
Jessi: all things supply chain!
Austin: seeing this year's calves running and playing
Kyle: participating in the World Food Championship
Jessi: giving individuals their first ever taste of bison meat
THANK YOU NOTES FROM US

"I deeply appreciate everyone supporting our cause and trusting in our process to provide you, your family and your loved ones with a product that was raised with love and treated with great care and respect." - Jessi
We can't wait to see what 2022 has in store!
