Have You Taken Your Family To Visit These West Michigan Reindeer Farms?
The holidays are here, and the north pole is a little too far of a trip just to say hi to Rudolph. Take your family to these Reindeer farms for some seasonal fun.
Reindeer became associated with Santa and Christmas thanks to Pagan mythology . The reindeer came to symbolize creativity, resourcefulness and knowledge, whilst also representing safe journeying and endurance through travels. A perfect companion for Santa's global trip.
So pack up the car, bring your warm clothes, and take a trip to say hi to some of Santa's fuzziest helpers this holiday season.

This farm is your closest bet to Grand Rapids, and has a long running tradition of being the home of Reindeer in Kent County.
GG Reindeer Farm has friendly and gentle reindeer that you can rent for any occasion, year round. While obviously Christmas is their busiest season, they are available for your Christmas in July party.
Their hours are limited, so you'll want to call ahead. They generally do more rentals than in person visits- but they are happy to accommodate. Or follow their facebook page for updates on future open houses that you can visit.
