Just a note of thanks for your generous hospitality extended to our family. Meeting you on the road as we drove up was interesting and exciting. The four grandchildren are still talking about seeing bison in Maine.

I suppose next time we visit my wife’s family home in Monson maybe we’ll get some bison for a cookout but not say so and keep it to ourselves. At least we know where it is available close by.

Anyway - thanks again for your hospitality.

Doug and Donna Moore

Dear Steve,
On behalf of the entire family I would like to thank you for the most informative and fun tour you gave us on Wednesday. The whole family enjoyed it very much.
What spoke volumes to Amy and I was the great deal of pride and spirit you have in your farm and for the natural environment. You truly maintain the qualities of the small American farmer that made this country and continue to have an influence on it.
Once again thanks so much.

We came to Maine on a family vacation, and it was absolutely AMAZING! And it wasn’t just the awesome hikes, or the coyotes, moose, and bears, or all the warm and friendly people, your food was great too!
Your maple syrup was great, the Italian dressing was even better, and I doubt that anyone could top your bison jerky… WOW….
You guys do a wonderful job. Thank You SO very much.

Thank you Steve and Diana for allowing my Mom and I to look at your sugarhouse and sample your syrup.
There is nothing like real Maine syrup. We're looking forward to trying your shared recipe for salmon with the maple dressing we picked up today.
After leaving the sugarhouse we did head up the road, as you directed, to then take a look at the buffalo.
I'm uncertain which was more impressive...that beautiful barn with the huge glass windows (and complimentary binoculars for optimal viewing) or those majestic buffalo!
Thank you for sharing your farm with the public today on Maine Maple Sunday.

Hi, Just a quick email telling you of the wonderful dinner we had a few weeks ago.
I pulled my first fresh corn on the cob and with your buffalo burgers, it was the best meal I had in a long time. YOU ARE APPRECIATED. THANKS

Good Morning,
I am sending this email to express how excited I am to be returning on Sunday for the thrid year in a row.
This year I am bringing a special friend from Denmark (Europe not maine). She is currently enrolled at UMO interning at the School I work at. She is super excited to see the process.
When I discribed our day and the loop that we make from Old Town to JAckman to see the various ways of evaporating maple water to syrup she just had to come.
Then I told her that we would have a chance to try a bison burger she was over joyed.
I wanted to you to know that out of the numerous sugar shacks I have been to yours is by far the one I enjoy the most by far. Looking forward to seeing you rain or shine.

You probably remember my visit early Saturday morning on June 20, 2009 before I went fishing for brook trout nearby. What a surprise for me to see the buffalo and calves close enough to take some nice pictures and to buy some ground meat, several loops of breakfast sausage and three t-shirts.
I have an interest in the American Bison that began with understanding the importance of the vast herds that grazed the fertile plains of the early western regions of present-day and the to the indigenous people living there, the natural predators and scavengers that followed them and to the grasslands they grazed. Their subsequent fate and the fates of those dependent on them is well known.
I recommend that anyone traveling north, or south, through the Moosehead Region make a short, pleasant side trip to Breakneck Ridge Farm.
If you’re lucky the buffalo will be close enough to the road to see and in any event you can purchase for a reasonable price (directly from the store) delicious steaks, ground meat,sausage and have enough money left over for a really cool t-shirt. Imagine a surf ‘n’ turf supper in of lobsters and grilled buffalo rib-eyes!
And for those with children a visit to Breakneck Ridge Farm may be worth the lessons learned from the history of the American Bison as it relates to our own.

My wife and I were staying in your area in early August and picked up some items at the farm while we were there. The meat was fantastic. Can't say enough good about it.

That was a great gift, you are very professional and kind. I will be using you again, when in need of a gift. My friends were thrilled and said the syrup was wonderful and the glass decanters just amazing !

Hi Steve & Dianne,
We recieved a copy of your farm from the Observer, from Pat Patterson. What a great place you have made. Maybe we can come back to Maine to see it soon.

Stephen, Scott Martinez here from Abel Blood's. Thanks for sending the info. Thought I'd sign your guest book. If you ever need any help on the farm, I'd be interested in picking up some side work, there's always more to learn! Meanwhile, my web site address (from my former company) is above, so you can kind of see what kind of experience I have. Thanks!

Hello from Monson, MA!
We visted your farm a couple of times in the past summer but, did not find you at home---(we were staying at Loon Club Road on vacation)--perhaps next time! We enjoyed a friendly hello from your dog "Freckles"? You have a wonderful peaceful spot and hope to find you at home another time! We'll call or e-mail before we arrive. We're looking forward to having a few buffalo steaks on our next visit! We love the area! We're originally from the Bangor area but came down this way because of jobs. Monson, MA is very similar to Monson, ME...small & pretty quiet--about 30 miles east of Springfield, up in the hills. All for now! Have a warm & peaceful winter!

Hi, I stopped and now are the proud owner of a Breakneck Ridge Farm hat. You gave me the cooks tour of the barn and we swapped farming stories. After leaving, I tried to contact Mr. Kelly re: his farm, however they must have been away as I couldn't find them at home before I had to leave. I was fortunate to make contact with Paul Vainio and enjoyed a visit with him talking 1911-12 J.D. manure spreaders. Will be at my camp next week for some work and the Fly-in My wife is coming up so most likely would enjoy your gift shop so possibly will see you then

Saw your article in the piscataquis about your bison.
Saw your web site in the near future I will be placing some orders with you. Every time I come back home I always make it a point to drive by and look for the deer. Glad to hear that your place is doing so well. Looking forward to my next trip and eat in your new place.

"Greeting's from St. Petersburg,FL"! I'm Jr.'s Daughter who will be visiting the Stones in Monson 7/15/02-8/8/02. While I'm visiting I would like to go on 1 of those Farm Tours, but don't know which day to book 1. The day I choose to go on that tour, is when I'll purchase some Venicen, as living in St. Petersburg we don't have such meat. Dose Spring Barbacue serve Barbacue Venicen? How much time should I book in advance? "SORRY about my Uncle Danny Stone shooting 1 of your Deer's, as he thought it was a wild 1"! "Please forgive those wild Stone's"! We'll see you folks at the tour!

Hi Diana,
I had the pleasure of meeting you while I was a Graduate Student at UMO in Dr. Lynn Nelson's office one day, I was his Grad Assistant. My husband Allen Knowlton, is originally from Blanchard. We have just returned from spending a week there and we rode up to your farm with our two children. It is very lovely! I have just read in the Observer about your tours which I wish we could've taken advantage of when we were visiting. Best Regards to you all.

I have been searching around for any information I can find on your town. My husband and I are planning to move to Maine is a few years with our son. We are trying to find a small town with lumbering opportunities and perhaps some teaching opportunities as well for me. If you know of any other websites affiliated with Abbot, please let me know. Thanks.
