Meet Reindeer in the US - A MUST DO in Leavenworth, Washington

Updated: Dec 18, 2022

The Bouj Dude was drawn to Leavenworth - the Bavarian town - as he was stationed in Germany for many years. So, finding the Reindeer was just the icing on the cake and boy-oh-boy did it deliver! I can't even fathom how magical it must be during Christmas time, but it is a treat no matter what time you come. If you have children, this would be unbelievable for them and absolute must do, but see my cautions below. Interacting with reindeer with such a gorgeous backdrop also added to the beautiful experience!

You will get a FULL on interaction with the reindeer along with getting to see various other animals that are on site: chickens, turkeys, rabbits, horses, and a giant pig. You also learn these INCREDIBLE facts about reindeer that I was never aware of - what a FASCINATING animal and I am so grateful to the owners of the farm for starting this business. When you visit, they also give you a 20% discount to return and to share with family and friends.

TAKE CAUTION WHEN INTERACTING WITH REINDEER

There are rules to follow when interacting with the reindeer (I posted a photo of it), ESPECIALLY since there were several baby reindeer and the mama reindeer can charge your running child. So if a child is < 3yo you MUST hold onto them to prevent them from running around. You CAN pet the reindeer, but only in certain areas and ways as it is not comforting to them. As with any animal, they can get aggressive when feeding as well (not dangerous) they just tend to rip the branch out of your hand. But these are all things that are discussed BEFORE you go into interact with the reindeer.


So, just take extra caution if you have a child or a child that may not hold onto you well. It was a struggle watching the parents navigate handling the food in their hands, holding onto the children and trying to film.

TIPS TO MAXIMIZE YOUR TOUR

  1. Hiking Boots - are required per their site and confirmation

    1. admittedly there were some people that were let into the farm with sneakers

  2. Cannot see/interact with goats or sheep prior - they ask that your clothes have not been around sheep or goats as it is hazardous to reindeer

  3. Outdoor Tour - the tour is entirely outside, so dress appropriately. Even the gift shop is pretty much an open barn

  4. Change of Shoes - you MAY want a change of shoes depending on your plans afterwards as we for sure stepped in reindeer and/or chicken poop during our time there

  5. Bathrooms - there are only port-a-pottys on site. Admittedly, at least they weren't filthy and the ones that are a walk down the driveway, by the gift shop have a handwashing station outside.


GIFT SHOP

There are VERY cute items at the gift shop. You can go before and after interacting with the reindeer. I recommend afterwards as it will be hard to hold onto your bags while feeding the reindeer.


MOBILITY LEVELS


The ground is relatively flat with a combination of grass, gravel and dirt. All walking mobility levels should be able to navigate this well.


WHAT'S NEARBY

Don't forget to check out the town of Leavenworth while you're here: we thoroughly enjoyed our food at Andres Keller and the dessert at Gingerbread Factory (don't let the name fool you - they have pastries, ice cream, coffee and more)
