Welcome to the new Reindeer Farm Experience beginning May 2022!

We are excited to introduce our new farm experience.

Explore the farm at your leisure. This is a self-guided experience. You can stay at the farm for as long as you like. Our last admission will be at 5:00pm and we close at 6:00pm.

This is a unique animal interactive experience.

You can expect to walk around (wheel chair accessible) from enclosure to enclosure and interact with friendly animals. You will feed treats to your favorite animals with friendly staff available to answer questions!

Included in the Summer Reindeer Farm Experience is the opportunity to view and hand feed moose, reindeer, bison, yaks, alpacas, highland cattle and more!

Also included is access to our Kid Play Area!

Our food truck, barista stand, and pony rides (for children ages 12 and under) will also be offered for an additional charge.

Animal feed is included with admission. Only feed treats provided by staff to animals. 

Dress for the weather. This is an outdoor experience. It may rain, snow, be windy or hot. Plan for it.

Once your animal experience is over you can plan to grab a Reindeer Dawg or Fireweed milkshake at our food truck, or take a Historical Tractor Wagon ride! Spend the day with us, nestled at the base of Bodenburg Butte, and finish your day with a Butte hike!

Please note everyone will have to sign a waiver before participating. Guests will be asked to sign our the waiver upon arrival. Waiver can be found attached below.

Keep in mind, depending on weather, it can be muddy. We have a limited amount of mud boots that are free for you to use if you would like. Some guests choose to bring their own boots from home and change into them when they get to the farm.
