Region

North

Town

Vega

My Grandfather bought the farm in 1958. we started off as a mixed farm. We had dairy, hogs and grain. in the early 70’s the dairy was sold and we concentrated on hogs, running a farrow to finish operation until 2013. Since then we have been custom feeding finishing hogs as well as expanding the bison herd. Bison in 1997 and it has been growing since. Last year we built a commercial kitchen and a small storefront to sell bison meat rather than selling live animals.

We hope to educate the consumers on the connection between the land and the food in the grocery stores, and put a face to the source of the food, as well the the life cycle of bison, what they eat, what their characters are.
