Extremely interesting tour with close up views of Musk Ox. Unlike any zoo animal as they are almost prehistoric looking. Well worth your time. Babies are so cute. Good for all ages.

Interesting farm tour. Learned a lot about the musk ox...a fascinating creature. Nice walking tour with the opportunity to ask a whole lot of questions. Made you want to take a musk ox home! Really glad we stopped here!

The tour was nice, an easy stroll around the property. It was easy to see the animals (and take photos). My entire family liked it (2 adults and 2 teens). It was easy to park the RV. It is also a great low price :)
