Fossil Farms is a mission driven company guided by a few core principles.
This means, consistently having the best quality products and the best service in the industry.
Fossil Farms’ Roosevelt Elk are pasture raised on 60,000 acres in Central Canada. These Elk graze naturally on grass, plants, leaves and bark. Our Elk are part of the “Never Ever Program,” where antibiotics, steroids and hormones are never used. Elk has more protein and less cholesterol than beef, pork and even chicken. Being a good source for iron, phosphorus and zinc, Elk is a great red meat alternative. With a similar color, Elk tastes like a cross of Venison and Beef.
The Roosevelt Elk is the largest of four surviving subspecies of Elk by body mass in North America. In 1897, C. Hart Merriam named the species after his friend Theodore Roosevelt. The desire to protect the Roosevelt Elk was one of the primary forces behind the establishment of the Mount Olympus National Monument in 1909 by President Theodore Roosevelt. Later, in 1937, President Franklin D. Roosevelt visited the region and saw the Elk named after his relative. The following year, he created Olympic National Park.
