History

Acorns Wild's story begins in 1870 in Austria where a master stone mason dreamed of frontier opportunity, leading Martin Schuler to embark on voyage to New York. There he met his soon to be wife Catherina through a mutual friend who had family in Junction City, KS. The trio continued westward after hearing tales of the Kansas Flint Hills. When they arrived in JC in 1872, there were many masonry jobs to be had and soon Martin was able to buy 80 acres (originally acquired through the Pre-emption Act), where he built his bride a 2-story limestone home. In 1881, at 42 years old, Martin drowned in a flash flood while traveling between work sites . . .

Elk meat is low in fat and lower in cholesterol than most other red meats, and tastes amazing!
Acorns Wild elk live as close to naturally as possible and are free of steroids, hormones or growth antibiotics. In fact, the genetics in our herd are highly sought after in the elk breeding world.

It takes time, preservation planning and a great deal of care to offer top quality meat while also looking out for this beautiful herd's quality of life and ensuring people like you can witness this wildly alive magnificence for yourself for many years to come.
