Don't miss the Reindeer farm! We had an absolute ball. It's amazing to be mobbed by these delightful animals - and it's finally an opportunity to pet some wildlife in Alaska. Our tour guide, Andrea, is AWESOME. She was so knowledgeable and passionate about the farm and Alaska in general. Try to catch a tour with her if possible. We... More

This was my second visit to the Reindeer farm in Palmer. It was a first for my husband. We were there with our daughter, her 4 yr old, 2 yr old and 1 yr old. It was raining when we got there and they even gave us umbrellas to use for awhile. There was a large bus group ahead of... More

Pet the reindeer and elk. Family farm with bison, reindeer that you feed in the pen and elk that you can feed through the fence. Fun attraction, esp for families with children

You don't have to wait till Christmas to see reindeer. Better yet, you get to feed them. The animals are so used to being fed that they just walk right up to you and even get a little disappointed when you run out of food. But the knowledgeable guides have plenty and will give you more. These are such large... More

This was really fun four all of us. Especially great to be able to spend quality time with these gentle giants and feed them. Must see. Oh don't forget to say hi to Dolly the bison who thinks she is a moose. Cutest bunnies too

The tour guide starts by asking the group questions. What is the difference between a Reindeer and a Caribou? Ask the grandchildren they know. Reindeer can fly once a year silly. Retiree answer, Reindeer is domesticated and the owner will shoot you if you hunt them. Caribou are wild and can be hunted during the season. If a bear decides... More

My husband and I had an awesome time at the farm. We felt very welcomed the second we step foot on the farm. Feeding the reindeer was the highlight of course. But they also had a little baby we got to bottle feed. We would go back in a heartbeat next time we are in Alaska!

Great little spot to visit and kill some time in the afternoon. Our tour guide Garret was very knowledgeable and great with directions and explanations. The reindeer were friendly and gentle. A great experience in Alaska all around.

Good for kids, it's like a petting zoo. Tour guide was nice but needed to know his audience and look to entertain the kids a little more.
