Danny Wilkin dreamed about raising bison ever since he saw his first bison during an event for his high school vocational education class nearly 30 years ago.
Danny also raised pigs for 25 years and grows hay on his 100-acre ranch.
Jeanie Wilkin sells the bison meat during the summer at the Cortez Farmers Market and in the winter at the Winter Farmers Market at the Four Seasons Nursery in Dolores.
Danny & Jeanie also own and operate Log Homes of the Southwest and also Wilkin Home Constructors, LLC in Cortez, Colorado. In 1997 after working in Alaska, Danny started building custom homes in Colorado where he realized home building was as rewarding to the home builder as it is to the homeowner.
While he is still building homes, he plans to raise bison for at least the next 30 years.
