Bison Tours • Bison Meat • Bison Hides • Bison Leather Goods

Broken Wagon Bison began in 2003 after owners Wally, Bud, and Ruth Koeppen paid a visit to friends who were already in the business…and the seed was planted.

After the arduous task of building fences, a corral, and a handling facility, they joined the National Bison Association and, in the fall of 2003, purchased their first 10 bison—7 breed cows, 2 heifer calves, and a yearling herd bull they named Big Bad John.

Located on 160 acres in Hobart, IN, Broken Wagon Bison’s herd now numbers over 100 and provides locally grown bison meat, bison leather goods, and bison hides, as well as one-of-a-kind jewelry at their store located at 563 West 450 North in Hobart, Indiana.
