KY Bison Co. started in 1996 when Steve Wilson and his wife, Laura Lee Brown, purchased Woodland Farm in Oldham County, KY. "We both grew up on farms and had a desire to return to that life we both remember so fondly," Steve recalls. "When Woodland became available, we saw it as a way to preserve farmland and return it to a working farm: a win-win situation for us and the farming community."Woodland Farm had lay fallow for many years and had a variety of problems to restore it to working conditions. Considering the work that lay ahead, basically starting from scratch, the couple looked at up-and-coming enterprises in agriculture.The American buffalo (Bison bison) easily won the couple over. Laura Lee was attracted by the healthy aspects of bison's low-fat and low-cholesterol meat, while the notion of restoring an ecologically friendly and historical species appealed to Steve. As part of what they termed 'an experiment in diversification', Steve and Laura Lee ordered twenty-five buffalo calves from Custer State Park in South Dakota.
