This Hidden Destination In Alaska Is A Secret Only Locals Know About
When most people think about Alaska they don’t exactly picture an abundance of farm country. But this special place in the MatSu Valley has defied all odds and succeeded at bringing a magical Musk Ox Farm to life in the last frontier. Located in the town of Palmer just about an hour northeast of Anchorage is The Musk Ox Farm, a stunningly beautiful non-profit organization dedicated to the domestication of these incredible ice age mammals.
Surrounded by the towering Chugach and Talkeetna Mountains is a place where you can come and explore all that there is to know about these animals that were once endangered. Bring the kiddos to swoon over the babies or head inside and explore the gift shop filled with hand-made items from annually harvested qiviut. There is no doubt that this hidden attraction is one of Alaska’s best kept secrets. Be sure to tell all your friends about your new favorite place!
