OTHER

Do you sell live bison?


No, we do not.




Do you sell hides and skulls?


We only sell the hides and skulls raw on butcher day. If you are interested, please contact us.




Do you sell bison fiber/fur?


We gather some of the shed, however, because we have mild winters, the fiber length is really short. I have had some spinners tell me they don't like working with it. If you would like to buy some to experiment with, please contact us.
