It all began in 1939 when Grandpa Everett Cook purchased an 83-acre farm, complete with house and barn, for a grand total of $5,000. After being told it was the worst investment he had ever made, he paid it off with two good years of popcorn. Today, that "worst investment" has become a third-generation dream...Cook's Bison Ranch.
