Riffle Farms – American Bison
Riffle Farms is a veteran-owned small business tucked away in the wild and wonderful Mountains of Terra Alta, West Virginia. Co-owners and husband and wife duo, Jimmie and Liz Riffle, operate a grass-fed American bison farm where guests can enjoy tours and tastings, camping getaways, and family-friendly events such as the Annual Preston County Farm Crawl.
Guests should be sure visit the Riffle Farm Store to grill the bison meat when they visit and camp where the buffalo roam at The Pointe at Riffle Farms.
Jimmie was born and raised in Grafton, WV. and has always loved the outdoors. He began exploring beyond WV as a teenager, and one winter, his travels with friends took him to Jackson, WY, where he fell in love with the sights, snow, and most importantly, the bison.
Jimmie and Liz met while the two of them were active duty Navy Nurse Corps officers, taking care of wounded warriors in Bethesda, MD. Their first vacation together was to none other than Jackson, WY. Liz fell in love with Jimmie, the sights, the snow, and was surprised by Jimmie’s love for the bison.
Two years later, the couple went back to Jackson, WY, to get married, and Jimmie wasted no time talking up some local bison farmers and meat processors to hone his own dream of having a bison farm. Liz jumped in right next to him!
Now, Jimmie and Liz are the very proud owners of a 64-acre bison farm located in Terra Alta, WV. This veteran-owned, small business is primarily run with fervor by Liz while Jimmie finishes up his career in the Navy.
