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
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
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
