On the Kel-Daley Farm in West Lubec, Dan Daley and his wife Danielle Daley raise genetically tested, 100 percent bison. The bison they own are plains animals, as opposed to species that prefer the woods.
The Daleys’ journey into bison farming began when Dan bought four bison from a former sergeant major in Danforth, whom he used to help guide hunts.
“I was an avid archery hunter out west, and I would chase elk and deer, all with a bow, and would have my share of run-ins with bison over the years,” said Dan.
