Pretty neat!

This place was really cool, the kids were very interested in the reindeer while there. I think this place is a must if you are visiting Alaska

My Mom, my 2 kids (10 and 11) and I all LOVED this experience. They farm staff was above and beyond polite and knowledgeable. We had a great time learning about reindeer and elk. 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!

Several travelers and locals recommended stopping by The Reindeer Farm and we're glad we did. There are rabbits to pet and hold, they allow walking into the chicken pen, a young pig to watch play with his water pool, Dolly the bison who was raised by a moose, elk to feed grass, and then there were the reindeer. The best... More

It was such a joy to visit here! It is so obvious how well the animals are loved and taken care of. Our guide was a pleasure. One suggestion for improving the tour would be to start them on the half hour rather than having the guide have to start over and hold everyone up giving important information about antlers... More

We (senior and a teen) had a great time feeding the reindeer, visiting the the bison and elk. Our guide was a part of the Reindeer Farm Family, and he was super friendly, patient and knowledgeable. The farm itself is a lovely example of the original colony farms. We had a great time. We spent about one hour at the... More
