Hanalei Garden Bison – Hanalei, HI

Andrew Friend and Stuart Wellington raise Certified Animal Welfare Approved by A Greener World (AGW) bison at Hanalei Garden Bison Ranch in Hanalei, Hawaii.

By the late 1870’s bison were almost hunted to extinction with fewer than 700 animals in all of the continental US. “Our Hanalei bison, having been DNA tested, are plains bison and descendants of the approximately 700 bison that survived the onslaught of the 19th century,” says Andrew. Hanalei Garden Bison Ranch’s pure American Plains bison raised on the island of Kauai are exceptionally rare. The bison have been raised in the Hanalei Valley of Kauai for over 35 years and have never been treated with antibiotics, hormones, or any chemicals and have never been taken out of the pasture.

The bison are managed outdoors, grazing the pastures where they are able to demonstrate their natural behaviors. In addition to being Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW, the bison herd at Hanalei Garden Bison Ranch is Certified Grassfed by AGW, the first—and only—food label in the U.S. and Canada that guarantees food products come from animals fed a 100% grass and forage diet and raised entirely outdoors on pasture or range.

Certified Animal Welfare Approved by AGW, Certified Grassfed by AGW Hanalei Garden Bison meat is available at Harvest Market Hanalei, Healthy Hut Market & Cafe in Kilauea, or Hoku Foods Natural Market in Kapaa, as well as at Oasis By the Sea in Kapaa and Baracuda in Hanalei.
