Amid a stunningly beautiful valley in Hotchkiss, Colorado, visionary botanist Julie Littlefield set her sights on restoring a sprawling piece of ranchland. Aptly naming it Scenic Mesa Ranch, she established a successful organic buffalo meat business.
Throughout the business development, Littlefield was determined to avoid wasting any buffalo hides. Her tanners processed the hides ecologically, and Littlefield began selling the beautiful leather to furniture manufacturers. Thus, the Buffalo Leather Store was born. Littlefield continues to acquire hides from other buffalo ranches and meat manufacturers, ensuring that none go to waste.
