Melrose Bison Farm is located in Southside Virginia. Once known for its world famous tobacco production – it now is an area of small sustainable farms, vineyards and recreation.
Our farm history dates back to 1890. Five generations of our family have called it home – and what a beautiful home it is. We have rolling hills, dazzling sunsets and bison as far as the eye can see.
Our goal is to use our land in a responsible and sustainable manner. We strive to use environmentally friendly methods of pasture management. We practice rotational grazing methods in order to enrich and maintain the soils that sustain our life.
Our operation is transparent – anyone is welcome at any time. We treat our animals with respect and take their care very seriously. Our bison are raised on natural pastures and never confined to a feedlot. They are never given any types of animal by-products or antibiotics in their feed, or treated with hormones or growth stimulants.
Melrose Bison Farm is a proud member of the Eastern Bison Association and the National Bison Association. These associations represent the best ranchers in the country. We feel that is always important to stay on top of the latest information, in order to enhance our knowledge of these wonderful animals.
