Book a PRIVATE RIDE and SAVE $50
Simply purchase 2 packages for a private ride.
Get away from the hustle and bustle…..noisy traffic, city lights and those confounded electronic devices! Climb aboard and travel old logging trails into the snow-covered forest. During daylight rides you’ll pass by the grazing cattle and horses in our winter pastures. You’ll have the opportunity to see our North American wildlife exhibits which include black bear, wolves and mountain lions. And be on the lookout for native turkeys, foxes, coyotes and deer. Some of our guests have even been fortunate enough to even see a moose!
The sleighs final stop is at a bonfire our staff maintains in the barnyard. Guests love warming up and enjoy refreshments they have brought along by the fire. There are picnic tables for folks to sit and enjoy the fire. S’more Kits (each kit makes 4 individual S’mores) are available for purchase.
When your ready to leave allow time to visit our agricultural animals. Be sure to consider purchasing Animal Feed (save $2 by purchasing online). Our animals will love you.
The ride will happen REGARDLESS OF SNOW. If trail conditions are not suitable for sled runners we will use an appropriate wheeled vehicle.
THE PACKAGE – In an effort to keep guests safe we are dividing our horse-drawn sleds into two sections. Each section will seat 10 passengers provided you have a mixture of children and adults (if you have all adults plan on 8 seats).

Plan on being at the farm for approximately 1.5 hour.
Dress appropriate for outdoor weather. Hats, scarves, mittens, boots and a warm coat are important. Consider bringing along a blanket. We find sleeping bags work great.
You may bring along any refreshments or beverages you wish to enjoy. There are picnic tables circling the campfire.
In the old days, the runners on these sleighs were used to carry huge logs out of the forest. Now we have constructed a large body on top of the sleigh runners that will carry up to 16 passengers. We recently added bench seating and steps with rails up onto the sleigh to make the boarding and riding process even more comfortable for those “not as flexible” as the young kids! You’re going to love it.
If you are looking to plan a sleigh ride for a large group be sure to call us. We have many sleighs, offer catering and have a warm-up room available. We are always willing to customize our rides. For more information please call (603 483-5623) or email John to discuss options.
