We were the only ones on the ride (it was almost closing time) into the Buffalo pasture. Our guide took time and answered ALL our questions. We then stopped in the café and had a Buffalo Burger, yummy!!

Our day at Wild Winds turned out to be a beautiful surprise. Not only was John, the owner, a wonderfully knowledgeable guide, he was also as kind and present as the bison we had the privilege of meeting. We had the opportunity to see a herd of over 200 majestic bison of all ages, including mothers with calves. These happy... More

Really neat place in small town Indiana. Took entire family, had a private tour up close to these incredible beasts. Herd is approximately 180 heads of buffalo. Beautiful property, nice gift shop, extremely nice staff!

They are on 426 acres with about 250 animals in the summer. They have about 60 - 80 cafes a year. These animals in the wild usually only live to 16. The oldest one they have is 20. They have two breads at their location. They also have horses, two styles of accommodations, and a place to eat.

Heard about this place, and decided to stop by on a Sunday afternoon and check it out. Good decision on our part! Very peaceful preserve. So pretty with the vineyards and nice landscaping. We climbed in a truck and went right out into the herd. Our tour guide gave a wonderful and informative presentation and answered all kinds of questions.... More

The food was great! I love that fact that the place has wine grapes all over the place. It was very relaxing and good place to visit for something different.

We love visiting Wild Winds, we visit every summer and every October. We love seeing the babies growing up, we have even gotten to know some of the Bison by site. The family the runs Wild Winds are nice and informative. Well worth the visit. Reasonably priced.
