History

Where it all started

Buffalo Range was founded on January 4, 1970 by Elsbeth Fullmer. In 1988, Elsbeth stepped down and turned the range over to the current owner, her daughter, Evelyn Muffler-Schmitt. Being a family based business, Elsbeth and Evelyn take extreme pride in the range. Their goal has always been to share their family values by making it a family friendly environment.
