It’s a Great Time to Eat Grass Fed Bison

Empire Buffalo is a small scale bison farm. We sell bison meat frozen, by the retail cut. Bison is great tasting and good for you, and ours is all grass fed, which creates a more sustainable footprint.

The outdoor market season is almost here! We will be at the Cazenovia Farmers Market every Saturday from May 5th to mid-October. Its hours are 9:00 am to 2:00 pm. We will also be at the Fayetteville market on select Thursdays from 12 to 6:

  • May 12th and 26th
  • June 9th and 30th

If you would like to pick up here at the farm, you can send us an email, or call to place an order and schedule a pick-up. When you come to the farm, we will bring the order to your car. Daylight hours are best. And, it’s always fine to call and come by on short notice.

We anticipate that we will have a great selection throughout the summer–and mark your calendar–Madison County Open Farm Days is Saturday July 30th!

We look forward to meeting you!

Our Story

Joe Lazarsky and Aileen Randolph purchased 100 acres on Falls Road late in 2009. It was an old dairy farm that hadn’t been farmed in a decade. In 2011 we brought in a small herd of bison from Tennessee. Our herd has grown to over 60 and we’ve learned alot about bison, fencing and the challenges of small scale farming. We wouldn’t be here today without the support of our community and passionate bison eaters from across the region. We truly appreciate it.
