Colorado rancher Rex Moore of Rock River Bison typically sells his bison meat to restaurants. Having lost 80% of his business last week, he is turning to direct consumer sales. He has lots of bison meat in his coolers and warehouse and would like to sell to you. As Moore tells MHOTC, “Yes, I am real. The plea for help is real. Yes, I am selling bison meat direct to the consumer. Yes, Craigslist took down my ad since it was getting so much traffic.”
If you are in the market for fresh bison, here’s how you can support small business agriculture. Go to the Rock River Bison website. If you click on “Order Now” (it’s in the upper right corner), you’ll find an order form of what is currently available.
Items are updating and changing constantly. Some items are sold by the package and some are sold by the box.
You can also follow the business on their Facebook page. There Rex is posting updates constantly both the business and info for new customers, including new products.
Rock River Bison is taking orders and restocking items weekly. They are doing local deliveries every week for a small fee.
You can also come to the cold storage warehouse in Commerce City (5460 Colorado Blvd., Unit 120) for curbside pickup.
They also ship anywhere in the lower 48 states, (sometimes UPS ground in 1 and 2 days and sometimes 2nd and 3rd day air). To be able to quote you an actual shipping price they need an estimated weight of your order to quote you.
They don’t over inflate product cost to give you free shipping. You can place an order and they will email an invoice with shipping cost. You can change and add to orders.
If you want an freight estimate first, send an email request to email@example.com.
Please be patient on your shipment. Rex has hired four new employees to fill the thousands of orders he is receiving. Grocery store meat cases are not going to fill up any time soon as more of the meat processing plants close.
