VISITOR POLICIES and INFORMATION
PLEASE READ BEFORE YOUR VISIT:
#1: VISITORS MUST FOLLOW ALL DIRECTIONS GIVEN BY FARM STAFF
Things to do that are always included in admission:
Also available at an extra charge:
For your convenience, we take all debit and credit cards including American Express. No personal checks. Cash accepted at all stations.
All visitors must SANITIZE HANDS AND FEET before entering the property. The foot bath is an industrial tray that you walk through so the bottom of your shoes are sterilized. This is liquid and does contain bleach. If children step through, allow them to walk off the solution before picking them up or ask the gate biosecurity person to give you a paper towel to dry. You may also request to wipe the bottom of your shoes with the spray solution on a paper towel instead of stepping through the bath if you have delicate shoe material that might be damaged by bleach contact. Hand sanitizer is provided upon entry and throughout the property. Always sanitize hands again after feeding animals.
BEHAVIOR ON PROPERTY:
TOUCHING THE ANIMALS:
You can touch and pet the reindeer including gently touching the antlers. (You can also touch and pet the mini-donkeys). Please don’t poke their eyes or pull their antlers. You can feed the reindeer, but only with the food we provide and under our staff’s supervision. 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.
PARKING and SURFACES:
Our restrooms are handicap accessible porta potties located outdoors near the Snack Bar.
There are benches and chairs positioned throughout the property. However, during high traffic parts of the season, there is limited indoor seating.
GPS isn't always accurate. Look for the blue reflective tourism signs directing you to Snowman's Reindeer Farm - all located within 1 mile of the farm. Look for our SIGNS - Main Entrance
