About Fossil Farms: Fossil Farms specializes in providing the highest quality farm-raised game and all-natural meats in the country. We take great pride in this craft and work hard every day with the single focus to be the best at what we do. When we first started our family-owned and operated business in 1997, we introduced chefs to farm-raised Ostrich and Bison, which were considered ‘exotic meats’ at the time. Our goal was to educate chefs and consumers about the health benefits of all-natural meats free of hormones and antibiotics, and promote various red meat alternatives. Stewardship, environment, and responsibility are words we use to define why we are so committed to working exclusively with sustainable farms. Over the years, we have expanded our product line to offer a wide variety of farm-raised game and all-natural meats to restaurants, food service distributors and home cooks. Our unmatched ability to source and distribute our products nationwide has made us a leader in the field. When you experience a Fossil Farms product, you are ensured that every effort taken to guarantee the health and welfare of the animal has been maximized by being raised in a natural environment. Our ethically responsible approach is the difference you can taste and see and the quality you have come to expect. For more information, visit fossilfarms.com.
