  • I am not fond of the places where the tours are usually take a herd for, since they teach you anything without importance, you should buy what they manufactured. So, I went with reluctance to farm the Bisonniere thinking of wasting time and eat poorly, as it is customary on these occasions. This time I was wrong. Daniel and Silvie taught us his bison farm, explained the characteristics of the animal and then we entered the cabin to eat. The cleaning of the place was pleasantly surprised with all its simplicity. The food was good. It was a buffet consisting of Bison products. First a soup, salad, sausages of bison, bison stew and a meat of bison, to will "tourte". It was all very good. With the added coffee and dessert we ate very well. In addition we could buy anything because everything was fresh produce that, obviously, we could not lead to the hotel and less Spain! A recommended visit.

  • In our trip self-organized we did stop at this remote farm between fields: on Sunday morning there was none but the owners were really helpful in setting up the ride with their pickups. They only speak French but they understand well and the ride is worth the expenditure of $ 10 per person; If you want you can also have lunch: are very equipped. Luckily the enclosures are robust peerchè the animals, as they say, I am very nervous!

  • On our way from Montreal to Quebec, we decided to follow the advice of TripAdvisor on this intermediate step along the way. The place is just another farmhouse with a central building and some sort of log cabin used as a souvenir. In the large House there is the dining room that is the classic Disney place furnished with several stuffed animals, bison, deer, etc., then for all purposes is a canteen. The food is unspeakable, definitely not good, worthy of the worst buffet canteen, I mean poor quality and unappetizing or inviting. Perhaps someone should explain to the nice lady what do good food. In Italy we know what means good food so we know well distinguish the difference and this is certainly not a place where you can eat well. Then what would you go? But for the bisons of course!! .... The bison are kept in an enclosure like grazing cows. We have been led to see these animals with a cart and the impression was bad. These animals are born to live in freedom and to run in the Prairies, seeing them locked up in these fences is demeaning. Farm master English or French explains everything he's learned about these proud animals. Obviously he is blissfully screwed if we understand his patois or slang, then after a while we listened to, so much was the same. The whole thing takes a couple of hours but I guarantee you it's not worth it. If you want to see the bison go elsewhere, for example at Omega Park in Montebello near Ottawa, at least there are free and I assure you that you can also approach by car, of course with a bit of caution. Don't be fooled, this Bisonniere is a rip-off, don't go there, save your money, rather continue to Wendake and go and visit the Hurone Museum, at least there the memorabilia will tell you about the true story of Canada. Sorry to say it but it was a bad experience.
