I very much enjoyed the experience and can’t wait to bring my grandkids here!


Great visit! Still taking in all of the knowledge I learned about these bison!


I enjoyed learning about the early conservation history. This was a wonderful experience. 

Woody earned his moniker from child-sized guests who
learned he was half Canadian Woods Bison. He’s the friendliest buffalo
we’ve ever had. So friendly, that he’s the star of the show around here.

He’s usually the first one to the fence when he 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 bison. 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 bison. Since then, life has been an  adventure. We want to share our adventure with you.
