“Returning America’s original landscape!”

We are the reinvention of our 61 year old family farm. After 5 years of rebuilding, our bison began arriving in the Fall of 2019. Our bees arrived the following Spring.

We raise and treat our animals with kindness and respect. We believe “Nice Tastes Right”. We respect Mother Nature and we use the Signs of the Moon for planting and animal management. We believe these efforts will result in obvious quality in our meat and honey products.
