The American Bison, better known as Buffalo, has staged a remarkable comeback since it teetered on the brink of extinction a century ago.
Prior to 1600, an estimate of 70 million bison roamed the North American continent. By 1900, the once-enormous herds were decimated and less than 1,000 animals remained.
The National Bison Association estimates another 20,000 bison are in public herds, and an additional 150,000 bison are being raised in Canada.
Broken Wagon Bison began in 2003 after owners Wally, Bud, and Ruth Koeppen paid a visit to friends who were already in the business...and the seed was planted.
Recommended by both the American Heart Association and Weight Watchers, bison meat is naturally tender and has a flavor that is rich and slightly sweet.
Come visit Broken Wagon Bison and have your own personal encounter with North America's largest native land mammal.
Summer tours give you the opportunity to be "surrounded" by bison (in the safety of our Bison Tour Wagon) and watch the new-born calves nurse and run around.
Tours are available for groups of 20 or more and are perfect for school groups, church groups, boy and girl scout troops, and business groups. "Walk-in tours" (no minimum group size) available June through September on Saturday at 11:00 AM and 2:00 PM.*
While you're here, be sure to visit Broken Wagon Bison's store. Our hand-made bison leather goods are beautiful and unique with no two bison leather patterns being the same. The bison hide rugs, pillows, and other bison hide products have a distinctive look and feel, and are definitely conversation pieces.
