  • Despite the snow and the inaccessibility of the site, the owner took the time to give us a personal tour and to answer our questions advice, go see this place rather on sunny days but if like us you had no choice when is mem e nice to go on the road.

  • The farm "Bisonniere", in the countryside, was visited on the occasion of our tour in Canada. Of course, we weren't expecting the Prairies with animals in freedom, but what we got, so we were not disappointed. I refer to the fact that the bison are kept within a huge fence, waiting to be slaughtered. We were greeted with great sympathy, along with farm-holder who runs his family-a big guy with a cowboy hat. Did not speak Italian, but we were followed by our guide who translated as we explained the Canadian. They didn't get on a big cart, pulled by a tractor, not very comfortable, but ideal for taking pictures, as it has no walls (but covered). Open a gate, we relayed in the area dedicated to animals, be able to see from a distance. After the tour, we had lunch inside the venue, very rustic, used for entertainment; local with many stuffed animals, so there are some who might be annoyed. The bison meat-very expensive-is healthy, lean and tasty and has excellent taste (at least for me; but I've also heard the favourable comments of other people). Wanting to stay in the "technical", carry what I read: "the bison meat is naturally tender, very poor in saturated fat and cholesterol, as well as rich in omega 3, essential for our body; It also contains a 69% higher than the amount of iron beef. " Lunch-buffet-I was very pleased-aside from some kind of broth that I heard a very strong taste. ferrous-almost. In conclusion, as long as you do not want to see bison in the wild and sorvoliate on some tourist scene, the visit is very enjoyable and interesting.

  • The visit to this ranch was part of a tour visiting Eastern Canada. In principle sounded like "technical" stop no more value than the opportunity to stop to eat and make a photo. However, upon arrival, we were welcomed by the couple who has ridden all this, and explained his project to raise it from nothing. With great effort, they have managed over several years raising a lot of bison. The risk of extinction is an animal and they try to know it and take advantage of its benefits. Uploaded in a bare trailer, offers a stroll among the bison, which are worth enjoying to closely observe their size and scale. It is a curious obrservar the dominant male and the females with their young. There is a small dining room where to taste a menu-based products from the farm (really good burgers, sausages and a stew of ox), accompanied by vegetables very fresh and tasty.
