Three Suns Ranch
There are actually bison living, and thriving, in Southern Florida!! And Three Suns Ranch is the 5700 acre grazing territory of these magnificent animals located in Punta Gorda. The ranch also raises cattle and works with local trappers to bring in wild hogs. What sets Three Suns Ranch truly apart from the other farms that specialize in pasture raised animal meats is their on-property USDA certified processing facility – the bison and cows go directly from the pastures where they graze to harvest, never enduring the trauma of transport to an off site processing facility. The animals raised and processed at Three Suns Ranch never encounter any hormone or antibiotic treatments as part of the ranch’s dedication to organic farming methods. For full details about the farm please visit their website. The packaged meats from the Ranch are available for retail at their on-property or on-line retail store and at Purple Spoon in Bonita Springs.
