Bush Farm Bison Centre

Bush Farm Bison Centre

Bison once roamed the plains of North America in numbers so great that early explorers simply couldn’t count them.

Bison are considered by some to be the most important wild animals in the development of North America – the centre of life for the Plains Indians, providing them with food, clothing, shelter and much of their culture. Bison also sustained the lives of the explorers and early settlers going west.

Bison roaming the plains of North America is one thing, but imagine our surprise and delight at discovering Bison roaming the plains of rural Wiltshire. Yes, you read correctly. Bison may be dwindling in North America, but they’re alive and well just a short hop off the A303 in the English county of Wiltshire.

These beautiful animals just have to be seen to be believed. Nothing can quite prepare you for the sight, especially the large males, the sheer size of which you won’t believe until you see them in the flesh.

Bush Farm is tucked away in the woods at the southern edge of the tiny village of West Knoyle, two miles off the A303. It comprises a gallery of Native Indian pictures and artefacts, a mile-long farm walk where you can see not only the 90-100 head of Bison but also Elk, Red Deer, Chipmunks, Guanaco, Prairie Dogs, Rheas, Raccoons, Owls, Pigs and Rare Breed Sheep.

All in all, some 30-acres of lakes, woods, gardens and farmyard await the visitor to Bush Farm Bison Centre, together with a picnic area, visitors centre, gallery, shop and a delightful tearoom.
