Maine Bison Farming
Medicine Wheel Big Game Preserve Buffalo Farming
No other animal is more representative of the strength and determination of this Great Country then the American Buffalo! From the massive adults to the frisky calves, Buffalo are intelligent, curious, dignified, and tremendously strong. The mighty Buffalo, now safely retrieved from the brink of extinction, is a living symbol of America's history and hunting heritage. From prehistoric times extending through post-Civil War times, the American Buffalo has been hunted. Once the mainstay of the American Indians, Buffalo are again gracing us with their majesty and bounty. Bounties of nutritious meat, fashion-quality leather, exquisite hair-on robes, decorative skulls, luxurious fleece, and exciting and spiritually fulfilling hunts!

Is Buffalo Meat Delicious?
Yes! When purchasing a whole Bison, you will leave the lodge with an average of 250-350 lbs of natural Buffalo meat.
Bison is often called America's Original Red Meat! Deliciously healthy, it is high in protein, low in cholesterol, calories and fat.
The Medicine Wheel Buffalo Preserve harvests 2 1/2 and 3 1/2 year old Bison for optimum flavor, tenderness, and impressive mounting qualifications. Our herd has approximately 212 acres of fields, old apple orchards, aspen groves, and timber growth. Our herd has been raised on our land with strict monitoring of breeding to maintain wild dispositions. We do not try to tame our animals and do not give tours that would familiarize them with humans.
Is Bison Meat Healthy?
Bison vs Beef
Although bison is very similar to beef in texture and taste, bison is sometimes called the healthier red meat. Grass fed bison meat provides less fat and more protein them beef. A 100 gram serving of ground bison provides 20 grams of protein & 7 grams of fat. In comparison, the same serving of grass fed beef provides 19 grams of protein and 13 grams of fat.
