Our Breeding Program
You only live once! This is one of the reasons we have reindeer. It’s been in the back of Chris’s mind for a couple of decades now. And, well, Pam believes in making dreams come true. Here we are with a Reindeer Ranch and breeding program. We raise them as pets, they are not for consumption. We absolutely LOVE these magnificent creatures!
We are members of the Reindeer Owners and Breeders Association (ROBA). If you are interested in buying and breeding reindeer, Chris is your guy. He will share his knowledge, point you to other resources and help you decide if reindeer are the right fit for you. With that said, our reindeer will be available for purchase starting in 2021. Because they are highly sought after, we will work on a “first come, first serve” basis with potential buyers.
While you are dreaming of the day you bring your baby reindeer calf home, we do want to provide you with some important facts.
Reindeer are a long-term commitment.
Reindeer are regulated – state and federal laws exist to protect them as pets
Reindeer need acreage, tall fences and proper shelter
Do your research because some states do not allow you to have reindeer. Here is where you can start:
Check with your state Department of Agriculture as well as the Department of Fish and Wildlife.
What are your state laws regarding Cervids (that’s fancy for mammal of the deer family)?
Does your state have a Chronic Wasting Disease program?
