Hardy's Reindeer Ranch

This was a completely magical stop we made on our road trip from Texas to Michigan. It was extremely clean, well-maintained, and there were so many different things to do that are so unique! My 8-year-old son, my husband, and I had a trip that we will forever remember.

Should be a stop for everyone! It's only 5 minutes from the highway. We didn't get to do the corn maze due to time restrictions, but we got to meet the reindeer and walk around the ranch. The gentlemen showing us was friendly and informative. Glad we sidetracked here off the highway!

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!
