I went to the Reindeer Farm for the Pumpkin Patch event they were hosting. I was very pleased with everything! I was there with my 8 month old and he was fascinated with all of the animals but mostly the hay in the pumpkin patch! (Haha) I was hesitant about going because I was worried about the crowd but it... More

The Reindeer Farm is a great place to spend time with visitors, young to old - actually, it's a great place to take older folks. The walking is minimal and you get up close and in the middle of the reindeer herd and feed them. Truly a unique event. Great for kids also but of course, for the very small,... More

I went to the Reindeer Farm and fell in love with Dolly. I was able to feed her a willow branch and then scratch her. Also fed the reindeer and see their elk herd. Didn't know there were Elk in Alaska. Fun trip and I'm glad I didn't pass it up!

This family owned farm, it is a great place to go. They make you feel right at home and they are very knowable. You can feed the reindeer, then visit their moose. They also offer horse back riding trips. I have been there several times and there is something new every time I go.

Our family (2 adults and 4 school age kids) visited as part of our Alaska vacation in August. This was our first stop on a long day of driving from Anchorage to Fairbanks (it is about an hour from Anchorage). The kids did not want to leave! With reindeer, elk bunnies and chickens to pet and feed ... would you... More

One of the most enjoyable animal tours I've ever been on. Not only did I learn about reindeer (and other antlered animals), but being able to feed them was a thrill. I highly recommend this to anyone, any age!

Wonderful staff made it so comfortable and welcoming to the kids. I had a 6, 12 & 13 year old and everyone of them enjoyed themselves. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and answered all of their questions! He told us more than we could every have imagined about reindeer!! The kids loved feeding the reindeer, getting to pet them... More

Chase was an excellent guide! We thoroughly enjoyed his knowledge and his patience with ridiculous questions at times...I am still debating on a reindeer purchase ;-) Thanks for the amazing time!

Everyone was so kind and welcoming. We had a great time being city girls here. Don't wear your best clothes here. You will get dirty!

Your fee includes cup of feed and you can hand feed the gentle reindeer. Several fields. Very educational but I'm a low-keyed way. It's muddy but they have free boots you can use. Also, have bison and elk. I forgot my camera :( This is a real nice working farm and they offer a military discount...and the owners son ask... More
