Black Powder Bison Company currently runs small herd of plains bison. we have a group of heifers, our big bull "Twelve Gauge" and some calves. the images below are pulled directly from our instagram page where we post new pictures often.
Black Powder Bison Company was started by good friends jeremy bowman and jay woytaz in 2017. The focus right now is growing a strong, grass fed bison herd that is 100% natural. located near the beautiful Elora Gorge in Elora, Ontario, we take pride in giving our animals the most comfortable, stress free environment possible.
our plains bison herd grazes on nearly 20 acres of pasture. handling is kept to a minimum to avoid unnecessary stresses on the herd. Currently the fields are a mix of both Alfalfa and Timothy grass.
our pasture is split into 4 individual sections which allows us to take advantage of rotational grazing. This means the herd always has access to fresh pasture and the fields are given time to regenerate naturally.
we sell our 100% natural, grass fed meat at a small retail store located at the farm. you can contact us for pricing and availability.
natural, grass fed bison is a delicious, nutrient dense alternative when compared to traditional proteins. below is a reference chart showing some nutritional information comparing 100 grams of cooked lean bison to other meats. the canadian bison association has some more great information which you can see here
