I have to say, this was not on my to do list but a family member insisted. It was surprisingly fun. There isnt much to the tour and it was a little pricey for what you get. The kids had an excellent time feeding the musk oxen though. The views coming into Palmer were very beautiful!

I am a local Alaskan and love to help out if I can with non-profits and those interesting activities that we have up here. Called several times and finally got a concrete date where several of us could go out and comb Musk Ox. We got to get in actual stalls with some of the tamer animals and rake them with an afro pick and our hands to get the fine qiviut off these wonderful animals. While I am knowledgeable about these animals the herd manager was happy to answer any questions that we had and knew the animals very well. I would go back and volunteer again if it did not conflict with the times that i work. Well worth the experience.

Totally worth your time! We learned a lot of interesting information from our tour guide, Janell. She was really nice and was very knowledgable about the Musk Oxen and the farm's domestication program. We were able to take our time and got lots of cool pictures. The Musk Oxen were absolutely adorable to see in person!
