This is the second year in a row that we have visited Leo and his buffalo. Leo has a way of communicating with the buffalo that is spellbinding. His gentle spirit keeps our kids interested and mesmerized. He is kind and knowledable and inspiring.

Amazing and unforgettable experience. Leo was clearly so attached to the buffalo and they to him. We also recommend staying on the ranch.

One of the best things we did in Canada. The buffalo’s are very impressive and Leo is great! It’s inspiring to se how he runs the ranch and nice to meet the kind volunteers! It’s something I really recommend to do. Tour is at 10:15!

Beautiful setting. We enjoyed the tour- lovely to hear about life as a buffalo farmer plus learn about these lovely animals. We stayed at the cabin on the creek on site (booked via airbnb). It was superb. Thoroughly recommend both.

$15 per person. No appointment necessary. They prefer morning tour before lunch. It is an actual working farm. Tour lasts an hour, unless your group is actively engaged in learning.
