ABOUT US

HOW IT ALL STARTED

For Pierre Bélanger, our founder and owner, the adventure started in 1972, with a novel idea for the time: why not turn rugged Ontario farmland into a bison farm? Buying the first few bison was relatively easy compared to all that needed to be accomplished over the next several decades. Today’s strong and healthy herd of 300 animals is a testament to Pierre’s vision and business acumen. We're proud to say that we are among the oldest in Canada, and the largest in Eastern Canada. And we’re just getting started!

IT’S A FAMILY AFFAIR

From one generation to the next, we’re passionate about what we do and we love to talk bison! Raising a family of three on the farm not only made for great stories - it also inspired the kids to get involved. Now working side by side, Pierre and his son Charles make an unstoppable pair. Both are committed to the well-being of bison and share a love of nature, hard work and adventure.

BLAZING A TRAIL

We are proud to be a leader among bison farms in Canada by recently becoming Animal Welfare Approved and Certified Grassfed by AGW, home to world leading farm certifications and food labels. Over the years, Pierre also helped establish the Canadian Bison Association and the Ontario Bison Association. Working alongside fellow Canadian producers and helping to further the industry have continued to fuel our passion for everything bison.

LET’S TALK BISON

We are proud to support the local food scene, on both sides of the border, and enjoy meeting those who are curious about bison. Every summer, for more than 

15 years, Bison du Nord has been a popular and tasty stop for the thousands who attend the Foire gourmande de l'Abitibi-Témiscamingue et du Nord-Est ontarien, in Ville-Marie, Que. We even earned the People’s Choice Award in 2016, thanks to our delicious BBQ bison slider.
