We very much enjoyed our visit to this Reindeer Farm, we even learned that a Reindeer is actually a domesticated caribou. The lady that gave us our tour knew all the Reindeer and had names for most all of them and knew their different personalities. You could tell that she loves the animals and her job of teaching the visitors... More

When we first got to the farm, we were allowed to wander a bit and feed the elk that were kept there. Then we were led over to see the bison and after, the reindeer. They take you into the reindeer pen and give you food to feed them and you can pet the reindeer. Our guide was great with... More

Our children (ages 6 and 4) had a great time here at the Reindeer Farm. Your admission includes a cup of food for each person to feed the reindeer. Your tour begins with a guide telling you lots of facts about reindeer/caribou. They give you some rules for interacting with the reindeer, hand you a cup of food and let... More

Our visit was fun and interesting. You can get out into the reindeer area and feed them. The other animals you see are in a fenced area. You can feed them through the fence.

This Reindeer Farm in Palmer, Alaska is a unique opportunity to feed, pet, and walk among these gentle animals. They looked me in the eye and even seemed to want to pose for pictures. A cup of food is given to each visitor to feed to the reindeer so they follow you around wanting more. I walked in the center... More

Nice opportunity to get up close with reindeer. It's a kind of petting zoo. You walk between the animals and you can feed and pet them. The guides tell lots of interesting facts about the reindeer. There are also some elk at the farm. You can feed them but you can not get close to them. Price is 8 $,... More

The tour of the farm lasts about 30-45 minutes which was perfect with a 4 year old. The guide was awesome and the reindeer were even cooler. If you are in the area with or without kids, this place is definitely worth your 45 minutes. It cost us 22 dollars, but I considered a donation to keep the farm alive.

We visited the reindeer farm with some family and had a great time. The staff was helpful and provided a lot of details about the animals. We got to feed the reindeer which was a blast. I would recommend a visit.

If you can get to visit this place do it. The tour guides are great and being in the pen and feeding these animals is so much fun. They are gentle and lovable, not scary at all. I can say enough how fantastic this experience was!! We even got to feed the elk though you don't get to go into... More
