American Bison encounter

Morpeth, Australia

Experience hosted by Sarah-Jane

60 mins
Up to 10 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

Visit our working hobby farm and hand feed our American Bison. Something rarely experienced in Australia.

We have three adult females, a big 800 kg 6”5” tall bull, two yearlings and three cute cinnamon newborn calves. We will introduce you to the bison, walking up to the fence for them to reach out to you and wrap their tongues around your food. They love meeting little kids and eating out of your hand, while we talk all things bison.

This takes about 40minutes. Sometimes the Angus cows are brave enough to come over to be fed.
Other things to note
Depending on weather, season and other things you may also experience riding the tractor (very popular with children).

Sarah-Jane and Luke were extremely welcoming and knowledgeable. The Bison are amazing creatures with lots of personality and the kids loved feeding them.

This was a very enjoyable experience for us and our kids. Sarah-Jane is extremely knowledgeable about all things bison and we thoroughly enjoyed hearing about these magnificent creatures. Feeding the bison was a unique experience and we all enjoyed seeing the bison devour the carrots we brought for them. Our little one also got the extra bonus of a tractor ride, thanks to Sarah-Jane.

Visited The Bison Farm today, Sarah-Jane was very engaging and full of information. I would recommend this for all ages. Feeding the Bison was a wonderful experience. So were their dogs.

To be able to get that up close and personal with Bison was such a treat for us and our son, and less than 20 minutes from where we live! Our 8 year old said it was really good and he learnt a lot about how bison live and behave. Feeding time was fun. Thanks to Sarah-Jane for welcoming us so warmly to her bison farm, definitely recommend checking it out, especially if you have a nature loving 8 year old!

We took our 3 year old to see the Bison this morning, she loves feeding farm animals, we were pleasantly surprised by the experience ourselves, amazed at the sheer size of the male Bison (and his hair style) l, we brought some apples and carrots which they loved and kept coming back for seconds, their eyes are huge and had a lovely glance to it, very gentle, yet tongues very long and rough. We absolutely loved the experience and will be coming back again, as it was raining which made it a bit of a mission to hang around with a 3 year old wanting to hold a large umbrella. Highly recommend
