School Field Trips

During this 1.5 hour educational tour, an experienced guide will present the history of bison in North America and the ins and outs of caring for bison. Our farm is environmentally conscious and our animals are 100% grass fed.

Your class will enjoy spotting cute bison calves that will have just been born in the spring! On the return leg, students will get to walk through the extensive corrals and handling facilities we use to sort the bison during roundups. 

This is an exciting opportunity for students of all ages to discover the world of the mighty bison!

School field trips are normally offered every weekday during the month of June, between 9 a.m. and 
2 p.m. Tours can be offered in English and/or in French.
