In this unique experience, you’ll learn the epic tale of the American buffalo in the comfort of our rustic, elegant event space. You’ll join other guests in our hay wagon as you go in search of any remaining buffalo.

Before you head home, browse our Trading Post for special mementos and healthy grass-fed bison meat. Stroll down the boardwalk past the Apothecary, the Saloon and the Bank where you can take a selfie inside the jail. Visit our Hall of Fame where you’ll learn even more about the fine folks who saved the buffalo from
extinction.

Looking for rustic charm with a double-shot of elegance? You’re in the right place. Our massive stone fireplace and vintage chandeliers pair with rustic finishes to lend a boutique feel. We abandoned the cookie cutter when we developed our design so your photos will be as unique and memorable as your experience.

We take the pain out of planning memorable events. Include a Buffalo Encounter and your guests will thank you for new lifelong memories. We’re generous with our inclusions so you don’t face costly surprises. Relax and let your dreams unfold in our timeless setting.

Meet Woody

Woody, who earned his moniker from child-sized guests who
learned he was half Canadian Woods Bison, is the friendliest buffalo
we’ve ever had. So friendly, he’s the star of the show around here.
He’s usually the first one to the fence when he hears or sees people
outside. If you’re carrying a bucket or bag, he’ll follow you anywhere.
His leadership skills are second to none. Where Woody goes, the
rest of the herd follows.

You can cyber stalk him without any guilt because he LOVES
attention. Here’s part of a transcript from an interview I did with
Woody so folks could get to know him better.

How It Began

People often ask how we started raising Buffalo. Funny story! We were suburbanites and our kids wanted horses. While searching for a horse property, we fell down the proverbial rabbit hole and wound up with Buffalo. Since then, life has been an  adventure. We want to share our adventure with you.
