Feel the Love
of Lean.

Leaner. Tender. Healthier.

The Benefit of Bison Can Be Yours.

— Sunset Hills Bison Ranch and Lodging —


Did You Know?

Bison is leaner than beef and is a healthier choice if you're looking to reduce your calorie or fat intake. It has nearly 25% fewer calories than beef and is lower in total and saturated fat. Additionally, due to its lower fat content, bison has finer fat marbling, yielding softer and more tender meat.

We now offer online ordering for pick up or local delivery (within 30 miles of Malcom, Iowa)

Care for the Animals.

Care for the Land.

Care for You.

At Sunset Hills Bison Ranch, we care deeply for our animals - and for the land. If you follow us on social, you'll see that. We have a mutual respect for all of creation, and that care and respect flows onto you. Our friends, family, and customers. It is just the natural outgrowth of our enjoyment of farm life, and love of neighbor - and we wouldn't have it any other way.

We are also members of the National Bison Association, Minnesota Bison Association and Choose Iowa! We spend a lot of our time researching best practices and learning about bison. Bison in Iowa is not uncommon, however it is not widely known. We aim to educate across the state about American Buffalo in Iowa.

The Benefits
Farm | Family | Food

Feel the Love (and Trust)

of Family, Farm, and Food.

Sunset Hills Bison Ranch is a family-owned and operated Iowa Bison producer that also sells livestock and other assorted goods straight from our farm to you or your family. Our love for our animals will translate to your love of your food. Ordering from a source you can trust provides a confidence and peace of mind over what you put on the table, and into your body. 
If you haven't made the switch from beef to Bison or from store-bought to farm, why not start now? And for those of you a little more local, 
we deliver within a 30-mile radius. 

Are they Buffalo or Bison? Great question! Read all about that topic on the Bison Blogger!

Savory Steaks

Most of our steaks are packed two per package. They range from 0.5lbs to 2.5lbs. They are best cooked medium rare. When bison is overcooked it does dry out due to the very low fat content! 

Taste the benefit of bison!

Lean Links

Who knew hot dogs, brats and breakfast links can still be a healthy option?

Our bison dogs are a summer favorite and provide a guilt free alternative to a traditional hot dog. 

Taste the love of lean!

Unreal Roast

There isn't much better than popping a roast in a slow cooker and coming home to a fabulous meal! Bison is the only thing that can make that supper any better! 

Bison roast is very versatile and can be used in place of beef in most all recipes.  

And more...

We must not forget to mention our amazing bison burgers and our ground bison. Our 1/3lb bison burgers are still bun sized after cooking! Due to the low fat, they do not flair while grilling and are a perfect addition to any meal. 

We also have snack sticks, summer sausage. jerky, ribs and more!
