Where the buffalo roam…
If you’re interested in buffalo, you’ve come to the right place.
Hello! I’m Linda Hubalek, owner of Smoky Hill Bison Co. I grew up on a farm, and have always been involved in agriculture. Since 1996 I’ve been back to where my ancestors homesteaded, writing books about how they homesteaded the prairie.
For over a decade my husband and I raised bison on the land where the buffalo roamed before the settlers arrived to claim it. And just like the Native Americans who first lived in this area, we utilize the American Plains bison for our food, and they provide us with our livelihood.
Please look around our websites, order what you’ve been looking for, and we’ll ship your buffalo item direct to your front door.
Its Past: Homesteaded on the Prairie
Centuries ago, buffalo and Native Americans passed over our family’s land on their way down to the Smoky Hill River. Then the area was homesteaded in the late 1860s by Swedish immigrant families. To tell the homesteaders point of view, I’ve written several books about the Kansas pioneers that settled this area, and you can read more about them through my author website.
My Butter in the Well book series tells the story of the original family that homesteaded the farm in 1869 (where I grew up), and the lifetime work it took to establish the farm. My two other book series, Trail of Thread and Planting Dreams, tell how my father’s and my mother’s ancestors homesteaded on other Kansas farms in the 1800′s.
My stories are also posted in my blog, so please enjoy my writings about the Kansas prairie seasons and inhabitants- past and present.
