We Have Buffalo in New Jersey!!!


Yes we do have buffalo in New Jersey!!! Well a buffalo farm to be more precise. It is located here in Hunterdon County and is not any further away than the YMCA for us. This weekend as part of a fundraiser, the Buffalo River Farm hosted a buffalo watch.

So today we took the kids...don't they look stoked?

Well at least cute!


And we did a tour of the farm while riding on a flatbed used for hauling hay.


Bison are born usually weighing in the neighborhood of 40lbs.

And by the time they are 4 months old their weight is somewhere around 600 lbs.
A fully grown bison weighs in at 2,000 lbs


And do you know how high an adult buffalo can jump?


They can jump 5 feet into the air...so all the fencing on the farm around the buffalo is 6 foot high.


In addition to the buffalo tour the farm also had horseback rides for the kids...


And several items to purchase and check out...


We all enjoyed a flavored honey stick...Chris and I had lemon and the kids had the watermelon flavored honey.


So we had a great time this afternoon doing something that most people never have the opportunity to do...


Go on a Buffalo Watch!
