Owners, Gary & Carol Borton, started raising reindeer in 1999. Today Reindeer Ranch has several family members along with a few really good friends helping to keep the farm running. We have added farm tours to our schedule which has made Reindeer Ranch a local tourist attraction.
We have traveled to Alaska to work with the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) Reindeer Research Program on several projects. We have worked with the reindeer at UAF as well as free-ranging reindeer on the tundra in Nome, White Mountain and Teller. We have also worked with the Reindeer Farm in Palmer, AK.
Our reindeer herd is TB acredited, CWD certified since 2002, Michigan DNR and DARD registered and licensed, USDA license exhibitors and ROBA (Reindeer Owners and Breeders Association) members.
