In his own words:
“Backyard Bison is a small, unconventional farm where we use common-sense practices to naturally produce good food that is good for you. Our Bison (American Plains Buffalo) are ranch raised with care here on our farm in Upper Bucks County in Pennsylvania. Our bison herd is on pasture as much as possible and we do not use hormones, steroids, or antibiotics with our Bison. We also do not use pesticides or herbicides on our pastures. We mix our own feed to ensure quality, and we never feed any waste products, animal by-products, urea, or Rabon to our bison.
Our Bison meat has many outstanding qualities. It is very lean compared to beef, but it is still nice and juicy. Bison is also more tender than beef, and has a slightly sweeter taste than beef, and no, it is not wild or gamy tasting. Our gourmet quality bison meat is only available from our farm store and farmers markets, so stop by to discover the great taste of Buffalo. We have cooking tips and recipes available, and we love to “talk bison” so please feel free to ask us any questions that you may have about bison, bison meat, or how we raise our animals.”
