Mainstreaming Bison Meat
“Bison adds a special magic to the landscape” says Rocco Verelli, founder of Northfork Bison. “My father and I used to raise these magnificent giants on our hobby farm, south of Montreal”. Rocco Verelli has always been passionate about animals, especially bison. “Seeing them roam and graze in a field is like a throwback in time,” said Verelli. Northfork Bison, one of Canada’s largest specialty and wild game meat companies, is now celebrating 25 years in business, serving customers in Canada and the USA. Rocco Verelli started Northfork Bison Distributions Inc. in 1997 with a handful of employees and customers. The company now employs more than 40 people in Canada and the USA. With a fleet of refrigerated trucks and an inventory warehouse in New Jersey, Northfork Bison can fill orders both for pick up and delivery anywhere in Canada and the USA.
