About Broken Arrow Ranch
ABOUT THE RANCH
Broken Arrow Ranch is an artisanal producer of high quality free-range venison, antelope, and wild boar meat. We field harvest only truly wild animals by partnering with ranchers in Central and South Texas as an integral part of their population management programs. This practice provides a humane life and harvest for the animals, maintains a sustainable animal population for the rancher, and produces wild game meats of legendary quality.
We are a family-owned and operated business now in its 2nd generation. Since 1983 we have been supplying the highest quality venison and wild game meats to America's finest restaurants. Many of the same products we provide to these discriminating chefs are now available for online purchase and preparation at home.
Broken Arrow Ranch is located in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. Clear flowing streams, waterfalls, spectacular bluffs and vistas provide pleasure to the people who live here and a natural home to the animals that live on the land.
Most of the ranch land in this area is not suited to cultivation, but it provides an abundance of natural herbs, browse, nourishing native grasses, and climatic conditions that are ideally suited to a wide variety of exotic (non-native) species of deer and antelope.
Introduced to central Texas over 80 years ago, these exotic animals have multiplied and flourished to provide a new agricultural resource for America. We strongly support sustainable agriculture methods, and our harvesting is carefully managed to insure the continuing health of these animals without depleting the natural forage.
Our animals are field harvested from over 100 different ranches, totaling about 1 million combined acres, located in central and south Texas. These animals are truly wild - not farmed or pen-raised. The free-range, all natural meat they produce is of the highest quality. Fine dining restaurants in almost every state use our wild game products. The strongest markets are New York, California, and Texas where large metropolitan areas support many fine dining establishments. Our product line includes venison from three different species of deer (axis, sika, and fallow), two species of antelope (blackbuck and nilgai - or South Texas Antelope) and wild boar. We maintain strict quality control by limiting our product line and selling exclusively the products we actually harvest and process. We are an artisan producer of quality meats, not a middle-man or a broker. We encourage you to learn more about our products and what makes us special.
HOME PREPARATION IS EASY
Preparation of our high quality wild game at home is fun and rewarding. We make it easy for you to enjoy the great nutritional benefits of truly free-ranging wild game meats. We offer a wide variety of wild game products for preparation in the home. Many of our products are packaged in small packages suitable for two to four persons. We also provide venison and wild game recipes and cooking tips as well as a toll-free "help-line" to our customers. We want to make your culinary experience as enjoyable as possible!
WHY OUR WILD GAME IS THE IDEAL MEAT FOR TODAY
The deer and antelope we harvest are free-ranging, feeding on natural grasses and other vegetation. This imparts complex natural flavors into the meat that are not found in farmed animals. Many of these animals are tropical species that do not accumulate significant body fat deposits. Because they are wild and roaming on large areas, we use a humane field harvesting system designed by us and approved by the Texas Department of Health. Every animal we harvest is harvested under full government inspection for your protection. Our venison and antelope meat averages one-third the calories of beef, one-eighth the fat content of beef, and is lower in cholesterol than a skinless chicken breast. There is no safer, more nutritious meat.
