Our bison-breeding project began in 1998 in Orchimont.
Our intention was to create an agricultural enterprise:
- Centered on qualitive rather than quantitive production.
- Respectful to the environment.
Today, we are breeding an average of 200 bison throughout our different sites.
The American bison remains a wild animal. As such, it is ideal for breeding through a biological production method. It requires very little human intervention:
- The birth and reproduction cycles are completely natural.
- The bison is impervious to widely varying climates, and so can live all year in the outdoors.
- The bison has an excellent natural instinct for survival that many bovine breeds have lost through domestication.
The feeding process for the bison remains totally natural: they feed entirely on grass during the main seasons and natural forage that we provide during the winter. The bisons destined for meat production receive a complement of cereals, but stay outdoors until the last day of their existence.
Bison meat offers excellent digestive and energetic qualities. Very low in cholesterol and fat, very rich in iron and proteins, it is exceptional and natural meat appreciated by all who consume it.
We are a breeding farm, but also a tourist center: you can visit our herds and we will answer with pleasure any questions you may have concerning the bison and his place in the history of North America during our horse and wagon guided visit.
