Welcome to my home page. I'm glad your here and I invite you to come back often. You will see changes, additions and updates all through this year. Check out current SPECIALS and PROMOTIONS. Now a little about my operation and these MAJESTIC BISON.
The farm I live on, near Lebanon, PA, has been in my family for 3 generations (me being the 3rd generation). I got interested in bison in the late 80's. After studying them and visiting a lot of farms and ranches already raising bison I finally decided to raise some of my own. The first bison to come to this farm were bought in 1992. I started by purchasing 4 bred cows. As of January of 2002 I have a herd of 105 bison. With spring being just around the corner (calving season) I am expecting to have my herd grow to 183 animals by the beginning of April, 2002.
My intent has always been to grow a nice size herd and market my own meat. I do this by selling directly from the farm to consumers. I will ship anywhere in the continental United States via UPS or Federal Express. Select your favorite cut using the Majestic Bison Farm products Retail Price List, and place an order. All of my meat is USDA inspected.
I also sell to stores and restaurants in a six county area surrounding my home county of Lebanon. If you are from this area or visiting and would like to see a list where my products are available, visit my STORES and RESTAURANTS page.
Another sector of business (although seasonal) is as a food vendor for Native American Pow-Wows, town/local fairs and private parties. These events usually take place on weekends during the summer. I am blessed with many friends (most of which work in emergency medicine) that enjoy helping me at these events. We are completely self sufficient even to the point of taking our own water and generating our own electricity if needed. It is a lot of work but we always have a good time. At these events we prepare Bison Burgers, Bison Hot Dogs, Bison Steak Sandwiches, Bison Kielbasa Sandwiches, Bison Hot and Sweet Italian Sandwiches, Bison Chili and Indian Fry Bread Tacos with Bison Chili. We also make an Indian Corn Soup and serve cold drinks. We have served from a few hundred to several thousand people at these events. I am thankful to be able to promote this industry to so many people. But the biggest thrill I get out of the Pow-Wows is from the friendships I have been lucky enough to be blessed with from the different Native American Nations. Visit my EVENTS page for a list of where we have been and where we are scheduled to go next. I hope you enjoy the pictures from some of our events.
For centuries, as many as 60 million bison grazed the North American Great Plains from Old Mexico to the Great White North of Canada.
Central to Native American plains people cultures, the bison provided many necessities of the harsh nomadic life. Meat, hide, and bones were all resources for the tribes and clans. Even the dung, (Ever heard of buffalo chips?) was useful camp fire fuel.
Beyond the practical use of bison, this magnificent animal played a significant role in the spiritual life of the people. Even in this modern age, the legend of the white bison has a special meaning.
