Visitor Tips and News About Hardy's Reindeer Ranch
Looking for something unique to do with my young son, I found out about this reindeer ranch last year. I believe that there were 13 reindeer last year. You get a guided tour, where you feed the reindeer crackers. Kids just love it!
In the fall they have a corn maze and you pick pumpkins. For December they have you cut Christmas trees, and the reindeer tours. They have a charming red barn that sells seasonal items and has an old wood burning stove and a model train that circles the ceiling of the barn. I enjoyed the fudge I bought from their cafeteria. They sometimes do paint balling out at the ranch too![Jessica Anderson, 11/05/2011]
There's a small charge for the Reindeer Tour. The Ranch features a pumpkin cannon and 5,000 Christmas trees.
