This is a fun place for people of all ages. Our group ranged from 9 to 76 years old. Adults were $9. Upon purchasing your ticket, you were given a short lecture/talk about the Caribou and Reindeer. When entering the pen, adults were given a small cup full of food. Children were not given food cups because the reindeer will... More

We went with my mom, daughter and grandson. This is an attraction for all ages. There is a very informative talk before entering the pen and feeding the reindeer. The reindeer are very aggressive about being fed. You need to hold the food under your arm. Once you are out of food the reindeer completely ignore you. My grandson was... More

Small farm, only need an hour or so to do everything. The best of course is feeding the reindeer. They come right up and slober you with drool and dirt. Little kids get a big kick out of seeing the animals so close. If you go on a rainy day- prepare to get muddy. Overall it was worth the trip... More

But the best part was feeding the reindeer! They are so friendly. It is also a great value for your money. $9 adult and $7 for... More

We arrived to black smoke billowing up from this farm. We had planned this stop for our toddler and were dismayed by the stone age activity of burning tires and trash. Fortunately the wind blew away from us most of our visit but we still left with head aches from the toxic smoke. The raindeer were interesting but pretty aggressive... More

No Tires: Sincerest apologies about the smoke you experienced on your visit! Please understand that our Family Farm would NEVER burn tires OR trash! Although we compost most biodegradable waste on our farm, sadly we have been cursed with “Foxtail” which is a weed that can kill our animals and spreads very quickly. Therefore if we simply put the weeds... More

Had so much fun, smiled the whole time. Great for younger and older people, price was reasonable, lots of animal interaction. It's a must if you're around Anchorage or Denali area!
