  1. I was up at Henricks Farm and Dairy in Telford I think has it. If not, the farm next to them specializes in Bison.

      There is an outdoor farmer's market on Wednesdays from 3pm to 7pm. It's located in the municipal parking lot at the intersection of Darby and Eagle Roads, in the Havertown / Oakmont section. They have a bison vendor. He has everything from steaks and sausage to burgers. The prices seemed reasonable and the menu looked interesting, though we haven't tried anything yet. Hopefully,we'll get a chance to try it this week.

        Thank you for that info. Maybe one day I'll venture out and grab me some bison.

      2. I have purchased it at Wegmans---forgot how much it was per pound.

        1. D'Angeo Bros in the Italian Market grinds it to order. I haven't gotten it in a minute, so I don't remember the exact price, but I do remember that it was a fraction of the cost of Whole Foods and the cheapest I have seen it anywhere.

          1. While the sell-by date has passed, I just read this about a nationwide bison meat recall...
