Oh, give me a home / where the buffalo roam…. This is for sightseers: drive to nearby Leo and see Liechty Buffalo Ranch and enjoy a stop where the buffalo roam in Northeast Indiana. Tours are not offered of the ranch, but the owners say many cars pull over to the roadside and watch the bison in the field. The farm sells bison meat nationwide, and if you call or email ahead of time, you can pick up your order at the ranch.

If you're more interested in becoming one with nature through hikes, biking, or kayaking there are many of opportunities for you to take advantage of the great outdoors in Fort Wayne!
