Sunflowers and Bison - truly a great fit!

While we raise the sunflowers primarily for their great oil, we're able to pasture our flower fields after harvest for the Bison to forage through.  After pressing the seeds, the remaining meal and oil settlings come back to the farm as a vitamin-packed nutritional supplement to their diet.
