Home to Russell and Naomi Bremner, and our three young children: Dorothy (5), Wilbur (3) and Martha (1), and of course our herd of Water Buffalo, flock of sheep, 2 dogs, 6 chickens and 3 cats.
Buffalo are members of the bovine group of animals just like cows. The (Asian) Water Buffalo at Schoolhouse Farm are highly domesticated animals and are governed by standard cattle regulations. Buffalo live well into their 20s and have the ability to convert grass fodder into meat or milk without the need for any other supplimentary feed.
A very healthy meat is produced, which is low in cholesterol and high in mineral content with less than half the total fat content of conventional lean beef. The meat tastes a little richer and sweeter than beef, the fillet is very good.
