Our bison are grown and raised by Canadian producers on over 9,000 acres of native grasslands in Western Canada. We have two ranches in Saskatchewan and one in Manitoba that are owned and managed by our producer/partner Doug Griller, a third-generation rancher. When required, we also work with select producers in Western Canada that manage/govern their operations under the same guidelines and attention to environmental practices as Noble.

Are your bison given antibiotics or hormones?
Never. Regulations and industry standards don’t allow the use of hormones in bison. As well, Noble Premium Bison are grass-raised without the use of antibiotics and finished for a short period of time on a free choice of grains. Our products contain no additives which means you enjoy 100% pure protein.
Your bison are raised in Canada so why does your packaging say ‘Product of the USA’?
Even though Noble bison are born and bred in Canada, there are few facilities that are able to meet our strict specifications. Being able to deliver on our Safe Food Promise and maintain our high standards for quality is our top priority. Noble processes and packages our premium product at the only single species facility in North America that aligns with the Good Food Safety Initiative and Safe Quality Food certifications, EU certification, has high animal welfare standards, and is able to conduct all production process in the same facility.

What do you mean by sustainable or regenerative ranching?
Through our ranching practices we work to improve the soil and overall health of the land our bison graze on. There are various techniques we use that are consistent with sustainable agriculture practices such as limiting tillage of the soil, increasing plant diversity, rotating cover crops and limiting the use of synthetic inputs like pesticides and fertilizers, which can negatively impact soil health.
Managing livestock in conscientious ways regenerates the land and can have a positive impact on climate change. Through rotational grazing, we strategically move the bison around so that rangeland is trimmed and fertilized by the bison. This strategy leads to increased forage production and soil fertility, resistance to drought, better water retention, and the sequestration of carbon from the atmosphere into the soil.
