This is the only place we take every single visitor to Alaska to see. get up close and personal with Santa's power system. The tour starts with about a 10 minute presentation on reindeer and their caribou cousins. Then it's off to feed the reindeer. The animals will surround you for a hand out of food. If you have no...

This was undoubtedly my sons favorite stop in Palmer. After a rocky start (he was knocked down in the mud by the little over zealous reindeer) once he saw Denali the moose, it was love at first sight. A great little farm and the ability to get so close up to the moose and the reindeer was great. It was... More

A pleasant trip through beautiful sight! Fun Filled Fall event! Just $10 for admission including Hay Ride, Tractor Ride, Hay Maze, Pototo Launching, face painting, Spooky walk, and Horse riding! My kids couldn't get enough of it :) Finally, make sure to try their moose pies and apple cider :) It's a great way to celebrate Autumn. Take a break... More

Had a fun day with friends and our godson. Note, parking entry is also the exit. There's no one to guide you in parking so just follow the layout. We enjoyed the chance to hold and hug bunnies that were also available for purchase. The spooky walk was great for kids, not scary yet dark and a couple creepy standing... More

We stopped here on our drive back from Denali. It was a perfect way to break up the drive. We used our buy one get one free ticket from the Northern Lights coupon book. It made it crazy cheap and for such a good time!! The people are very nice and informative. You get to pet and feed reindeer, elk,... More

The are more than just reindeer at this farm. This organization also takes in abandoned wild life including Dolly, the bison. There was also a moose that we could visit and share treats with. A good number of reindeer exist in a "petting zoo" atmosphere. When we were there in May, the animals were all in beautiful velvet.

What a great visit during the Fall Fair. As a vendor, I needed a break, so went to a working reindeer farm. The tour was detailed & educational ( horns vs antlers . . ) Then we went into the pens with the reindeer & fed em & petted for at least 1/2 hour. What a treat for a city... More

Simply put, this is fun even for adults. It's a great place for kids, but we enjoyed going in the pens and feeding the reindeer just as much as the kids. Be prepared to be swarmed - they know the routine! But they are harmless (just watch out for the antlers, some of which look like they could shear your... More

The reindeer farm was much better than I expected. The animals are loved and well cared for. They all have plenty of room in their fenced areas. You can take as much time as you want to visit with the elk. The tour was very informative and fun. I learned a ton of things I didn't know to bring back... More
