A family road trip seven years ago to South Dakota and Nebraska resulted in an unexpected farming enterprise for Mary Farmer. After returning home, Farmer told her husband’s father about the herds of bison they saw while vacationing. Farmer’s father-in-law replied he’d always wanted a bison to raise on his family farm in Elberton.
