A Chat with Glacier Ridge Animal Farm
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We started out as a working buffalo farm with a few exotic animals. We still raise bison, but have now become more of a sanctuary for people who have out of the ordinary "pets" and for various reasons can no longer care for them. For example, a humane society can't take in a tame Texas Longhorn!
What is the experience customers can expect?
The park is very hands on and is located on 14 beautiful acres with groomed trails, woods and ponds. Customers can interact with most animals; such as goats, llamas, chickens, camels, buffalo and over 20 other species of animals. If you get lucky you might even get to help feed the baby goats!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
We wanted to share our farm with the community. After taking in so many animals we needed to figure a way, financially, to keep opening our doors. There are so many special creatures here that it just wouldn't be right not to share them animal lovers everywhere.
What do you love most about your job?
The look on a 6 year old's face the first time that child feeds the buffalo a treat....and they want to do it again! We want to give people opportunities to expereince the very special critters here at Glacier Ridge. I get to do what I love and I never have to put on a pair panty hose again. :)
