DECEMBER ON THE REINDEER FARM

No Earthquake Damage Here Hi friends, I bet you’re wondering about that massive 7.0 earthquake we had last week.  No worries here, the  farm made it through just fine. The animals were calm and mellow right after the quake too. Only the farm dog was ill at ease directly following the earthquake. After a thorough examination of the farm there was zero damage discovered. Asking around it seems like older homes and buildings suffered a lot less damage than newer construction. Go figure! Winter Tours We are up and running, hosting our regular Winter Tours. You need to know though that those tours are almost booked up. If you want to come to the farm this month you need reservations! These must be booked in advance and you can do that here. Like I said do not wait to book a…
