Along with this 2 year old bull, we are excited to be featured on the Maine Public Broadcasting Network entitled Incredible Maine this Saturday, April 3rd at 10:30 a.m. We were delighted to host LC VanSavage and the crew on two occasions as they filmed the show. They are terrific people and do a wonderful job of featuring folks from all over Maine and promoting this great state. Check their website at www.incrediblemaine.com.

Of course, our bison did not always cooperate when we prepared for special footage, but in the long run they did what they do best - be bison with their own agenda and the crew of Incredible Maine captured their nature so well.

We also had the honor of being interviewed by Sharon Rose, of Channel 6 News, as she wore her “columnist” hat for Food, Etc. She did a wonderful job of sharing the great taste and health benefits of bison meat, as well as their grazing instincts that help to sustain pastures and grasslands. 

We are gearing up for birthing season and hope that you will come by for a visit. We never know quite when the calves will start to arrive, but you can watch this blog to learn when they do. We will keep you posted! Last year it all began on May 3rd through June 10th. We hope we do not have a repeat performance of twins, however!

Speaking of twins, Little Warrior is doing great. He is kicking up his heels in this warmer weather and growing stronger every day. He, like the rest of the herd are enjoying the bits of grass that are turning green - a welcomed break from the hay they have had all winter.

Enjoy the warming weather!

Spring is here!

What great weather we have been having. Perhaps spring is
truly upon us! That means the outside work has begun. Last week I spent the day
cleaning brush along the fence behind the back of the house. Little Warrior
came down and spent the day near by me, grunting occasionally and laying down
on just the other side of the fence. I should have taken a picture, but I never
seem to have the camera with me at the right time. Instead, I took a picture
yesterday of the daffodils that are emerging along the side of the house. I
transplanted them there from the edge of the pasture where they had been
growing. They date back to Ted’s grand parents gardens so it is great to have
restored them.

The bison are feeling the temperature changes, as well and
are more mobile. Every day gets us closer to calving season and we are excited
to watch and see who will go first and when they will begin. We will keep you
