What you'll do

Visit our working hobby farm and hand feed our american bison apples and carrots. Something rarely experienced in Australia.

We have three adult females, a big 800 kg 5”5” tall bull, two yearlings and soon so be (January) some 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 carrots. They love meeting little kids and eating out of your hand, while we talk all things bison.

This takes about 30minutes. Sometimes the Angus cows are brave enough to come over to be fed also.

The bison experience in Morpeth is great fun. One can get close to the animals, but feel completely safe. Lovely location and a super friendly and knowledgeable host. Great communication and directions too.

This was a really great experience for me and my partner. Seeing the bison was exciting, but what we enjoyed the most was hearing about them from the host

Had a great time seeing the Bison up close. They were very calm and ate carrots from our hands. And of course a lovely chat with Sarah- Jane and Luke. They love their animals.
