Broken Arrow Ranch

“Mike Hughes used to carry meat around in a briefcase and walk the streets of NYC and Chicago, to get chefs to taste his meat. In some places, they still talk about it. These chefs have been buying meat from us for over 35 years now.”

The concept of field harvesting and processing wild venison was pioneered by Chris’ father, Mike Hughes, back in 1983, and after developing the technology and helping to improve the legislation that made it feasible, Broken Arrow Ranch is still the industry-leader in pure wild meat to your table.

The operation has grown over the years, with mobile meat processing units being sent to harvest on nearly 40 unique ranches every year. The team works with wildlife ecologists, ranch owners and managers to identify over-populated herds on private land all across the state of Texas, seeking opportunities to use selective harvesting to improve the health of the herd and land.

We ship orders all over the United States. Originally, we worked only as a wholesaler for Chefs and restaurants, but in 2007 we began shipping much smaller orders to individuals. With the growing number of food sensitivities and extreme allergies, we realized that we became a resource for many people who could only eat wild game because of allergies to synthetic hormones, bulk livestock feed and other human additives. Our work sustains the lives of many people whose only other option would be to transition to a strictly vegetarian diet.

Now, Broken Arrow Ranch’s work has expanded beyond just the requirements of taste, but has deepened to a focus on purity. Pure food, is the best food. It tastes the best, makes our bodies feel the best, and ultimately, results in healthier natural ecosystems.
