All visitors must SANITIZE HANDS AND FEET before entering reindeer barn. Sanitize hands again after feeding reindeer. Sanitizing stations are positioned throughout the property. WARNING: Foot bath contains BLEACH and can damage clothing if splashed or dripped. Walk through softly and make sure children walk off the excess before picking them up against clothing.


No climbing, horseplay, running, pets or outside Food, smoking or vaping, entry after hours, unsupervised feeding of animals.

When inside the barn visiting the animals: Keep your head behind the fence at all times so you don’t accidentally get knocked in the face by an antler.

You can touch and pet the reindeer including gently touching the antlers. Please don’t poke their eyes or pull their antlers. You can feed the reindeer, but only with the food we provide. Please don’t throw objects into the pen.  We do not force our animals to do anything they don’t want to do. If they are sleepy or shy, we don’t force them to get up or move toward you. Most of the time they willingly interact with visitors and enjoy the contact. Occasionally they smell or sense something they don’t like and will back up. They also do not respond well to yelling or screaming, so keep in mind that gentle inside voices will improve your opportunities for interaction. The happiness of our animals is our top priority so we let them interact with you in their own way. Our staff will talk to you about them and help you learn about the many unique aspects of reindeer as you watch, observe, interact and take pictures of them. You may also ask any staff member to take a picture for you. We reserve the right to refuse service or ask anyone to leave the property who is not following the farm rules, being abusive to the animals or staff or is disrupting the operations of the farm in any way with their behavior.
