Eel River Bison Ranch and Event Center was established in 2014. Owners, Eric and Tonya Horvath, have begun fulfilling their dream of operating a working Bison ranch. Phase one was completed in January 2015 with the arrival of the starter breeding herd. Preparation has begun on the third pasture area.

The Horvath’s have now opened the event center at full capacity, which allows for accommodations of 200 guests. Many aesthetic improvements have been made to the exterior of the event center. The event center was a popular spot in South Whitley, Indiana for many years and was known as Darley’s Barn of Primitives. The event center is the perfect place for weddings, reunions, parties, meetings and any other gathering you can imagine.

If you have ever attended an event at Darley’s Barn in years past we would love to hear from you. If you are interested in hosting an event at Eel River Bison Ranch and Event Center we would love to hear from you as well. Please give us a call or contact us through our contact page.
