This is a great way to get up close to these beautiful majestic elk. Brenda and Alan work hard to take excellent care of their animals and are wonderful, friendly people. It's a nice, easy to find little farm on the edge of Molalla. And Molalla is a nice, friendly little country town to visit.

I live by Alan and his wife for over five years. They have great animals and fun things for kids. They sell delicious eggs and other great meat, mostly elk. They have neat jewelry that is made by Allen's wife. I suggest you visit, you'll have a fun time.

I brought my young son and had a blast! He got a little antsy during the education part in the barn. Thankfully, they had a little swingset/slide area where we played until it was time to see the animals. The elk were beautiful and majestic! We enjoyed the animals in the petting zoo. Overall, it was just a great day!... More

This is also a petting zoo for the kiddies, as well as a chance to see elusive elk up close. They are very difficult to see in the wild, and this is the closest most people will ever get to an elk.

Our guide (she was owner) was very knowledgeable and patient with our group. Very impressed by how well maintained the farm was and my daughters and I learned many facts about elk and other animals. It was fun and we learned things as a bonus!

Who knew? I was impressed that an elk ranch existed and this is worth the trip to Molala to see it. Beautiful setting on 50+ acres, with wildlife all around. This is a family run operation and tours are scheduled through out the day. You should call before going out, on some weekends it sounds like they might be at... More

This is a small family run place. You book a day and time in advance. Hopefully you have a good GPS as its a bit tricky to find. Park and when everyone is there or its time to start you learn inside the barn about the antlers, and their favor Elk, and pass around info cards on those that are... More
