Dave and Sue Whittlesey have spoken at organizations throughout North America about the benefits of bison and elk ranching. We are always willing to take the time to answer your questions about our ranch, our bison and elk and the meat we sell direct to our customers throughout the USA. Feel free to contact us.

High Wire Ranch was featured in the March/April 07 issue of Eating Well Magazine and most recently in Sunset Magazine, the February 2008 issue, "Bringing Bison Back." America's Heartland, a national PBS television show, featured our ranch. The article and video about us is available online at the America's Heartland website.

We love what we do and take pride in providing our customers with the best possible bison and elk meat. We enjoy a personal relationship with our customers at farmers markets and through our website which is how we sell direct. Visitors are welcome at our ranch by appointment.
