If you’re someone who loves the magic of the holiday season and has always been curious about what it’s like to meet Santa’s reindeer up close, then you’re in luck. Just a short drive up Hwy 65 from Bowling Green, you can visit the Reindeer Farm and learn all about these fascinating creatures.
The Reindeer Farm: A Winter Wonderland
Located in the heart of Bowling Green, The Reindeer Farm is a winter wonderland that will transport you to a magical world filled with holiday cheer. As you step onto the farm, you’ll be greeted by a scene from a Hallmark movie – festive decor, cozy fire pits, farm animals, and the main attraction – Reindeer!
After checking in and snapping a few pictures in the sleigh, head to the pen for your scheduled Reindeer encounter. During this time, you will learn about the resident’s various attributes and personalities and have a chance to ask questions before visiting each reindeer. You can then spend time taking pictures and interacting with each one. These majestic animals are a sight to behold, and they seem happy to have friendly visitors and pose for family pictures.
In addition to the reindeer encounters, The Reindeer Farm offers a range of activities for everyone in the family to enjoy. Some of the things you can enjoy during your visit are the Snowball Dodge Ball Experience, the Petting Farm, holiday-themed Corn Hole, Christmas Tree Ring Toss, and writing letters to Santa. The farm also offers an onsite food truck and wine tasting (check schedule for availability). We loved grabbing a quick bite and sampling festive wines, like the Cranberry Cheer from Carriage House Vineyard. Also, Santa and Mrs. Claus make their way around the farm, so remember your camera.
The Reindeer Farm is not only a place to create memories but also a perfect shopping destination for cute holiday gifts. While the kids play at the indoor playground, you can complete your holiday shopping list.
Make it a Day
After spending a day at the farm, we highly recommend stopping by Chaney’s Dairy Barn, located nearby. This charming restaurant boasts a vast selection of sandwiches, burgers, and salads. However, the star of Chaney’s is their homemade ice cream, which is produced using milk and cream from their resident cows. With a wide range of flavors to choose from, you’ll definitely find something to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Apart from the food, Chaney’s also offers a self-guided farm tour where you get to learn more about the farm and its cows, and the playground is a must-do if traveling with kids.
