I wasn't expecting such a large herd. Very cool place. There is a tour you can take but since we had 11 people with us the cost was a bit high so we didn't take it. Just walking the park was interesting and they have a gift shop. The people are obviously very knowledgeable about the herd.

Recently attended a Women's Leadership Training Seminar at the Buffalo Preserve. It's located in the Northeast corner of Indiana near Angola. Driving onto the property was a step into tranquility and openness. Stayed in a beautiful log cabin lodge owned and built by John who also served as our "personal chef". Enjoyed the very best in culinary delights everyday with... More

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

My family and I visited after a friend suggested we look into the ranch. Everyone on the ranch was very friendly. The tour was exciting and informative. We learned a lot from our guide. There is a lot to learn and look at on the grounds. Tours are every hour on the hour. Be sure to call to find out... 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
