Currently we have three vacation homes ready for you to stay in each with their own respective name (Wild Horse, Wild Buffalo, and Twin Elks upper and lower units). These homes provide everything you need from great relaxation and comfort to fire pits and kayaks.

The Next Step

The Next Step offers owners a unique opportunity to enhance their horses’ confidence through expert guidance from our highly experienced trainers. Our approach centers on crafting tailored, successful experiences for every horse, ensuring they receive the consistent practice needed to develop into calmer and more assured animals.

New Beginnings Ranch

Buffalo Sales & Service

We have been ranching buffalo since 1995 and pride ourselves on offering and recommending exclusive selections of premium live buffalo and buffalo meat products, each meticulously cared for to ensure optimal health and vitality. Our herd, and those we recommend, have always been raised on vast, open pastures, allowing them to roam freely and live in a natural, stress-free environment. We are National Bison Association, Michigan Bison Association, and Dakota Territory Buffalo Association members in good standing.

Contact us for assistance with Live Animals, Buffalo Meat Products, Consulting Services, Ranch Startup, Buffalo Roundup & Capture, Trailering Services, and information on top quality Partners that can provide the same.
