Battle River Bison is named after a river that runs through several family farms in Alberta. Richard Allan brought his dreams to Ontario when he, his wife Cheryl and their two children made Drummond Centre just outside of Perth their new home.
Since 2006, they have raised bison for meat while working to make their land once again, farmable. “These beautiful animals are a joy to watch and we encourage everyone to bring their camera and stay for a visit,” says Richard. Animals raised at Battle River Bison are free of steroids and growth hormones.
The meat is sold at the Carp Farmers Market, Foodsmiths (Perth), Garden Market (Smiths Falls) and the Natural Food Pantry (Kanata). If you are dining check out the Dalhousie Lake Restaurant in McDonalds Corners for our burgers. Farm-gate sales are also available.
Among the many health benefits of bison are, low levels of cholesterol and fat and high levels of omega 3 fatty acids, as well as iron.
