CHEROKEE BISON FARMS >> Our History

Located in central Wisconsin at Cherokee, just four miles east of Colby -- (home of the original world-famous Colby Cheese!) -- you will find our 440-acre bison farm. What began as an alternative to dairy farming is now a successful bison business. With the purchase of our first bison in 1989, Cherokee Bison Farms is now home to over 250 head of pure-bred American Bison.

Choosing to work with Bison was easy. We wanted to produce an alternative meat that health conscious consumers would love. Plus, we immediately fell in love with the animals themselves. They are beautiful, intelligent and very resourceful.  Our bison are naturally raised. Trying to keep in harmony with the bison's natural genetic make-up, our animals are on a feed program that includes rotational grazing and supplement feeding with hay, haylage and silage (thus a high-forage diet), minerals and vitamins. We are able to raise and feed grasses more specific to a bison's diet and do so whenever possible. We do raise all of our own feeds and do not import any commercial feeds or use artificial additives or bone/bloodmeal components. Naturally raised!

The end result is a wonderfully lean, delicious meat that is truly an asset to any meal. And naturally that way! Nothing artificial is added to our meat. No beef, pork or other additives go into any of our products. We are 100% pure American Bison -- all Wisconsin State Inspected.

We are members of Something Special from Wisconsin - a collection of top-quality specialty produce and food items all from Wisconsin!
