  • It was a short that was totally worth the trip. It was first time seeing the reindeers. Nice farms and hay ride. Affordable and fun. 
  • Please don't call that a corn maze. We could see over a large portion of it, and we're not that tall. We kept ducked down to try and make it more challenging, but unfortunately, it's just not much of ...  read more »
  • My daughter and I really enjoyed visiting the reindeer ranch. good value, great gift shop. We didn't get to go to the restaurant there was a company picnic there that day. 
  • It's decent. Didn't get to see any reindeers but gazed upwards and there was a sky full of starts, a truly pretty sight. They have an amazing maze where you have to find 8 treasures within a certain time frame.
  • We have been coming to hardys for many many years! The trees are very expensive but we could justify their prices for the experience with the reindeers! On 2 separate occasions we have been informed by the owners that we have to pay a group rate to shop and spend money at their business! I have a daycare is why they told me to pay a group rate in advance. . When I had my 3 own children and 1 daycare child. My friends were with us and had their own children! When I was asked if I had daycare I said yes. But by no means was it a daycare field trip! They were very rude about it. The second occasion was just a few weeks ago. The sign in front said open... the sign on store door said closed. We walked out to their trees for a picture and the owner was not very happy and informed us that we needed to pay to take a picture! Really?? We spend over 150.00 for tree and ornaments and they want paid for a photograph? Not great Christmas cheer people! We just purchased our tree at sunset tree farm in Mansfield! What a wonderful experience! Free cookies and hot chocolate! Trees were alot cheaper and when we went to pay .... they don't take credit. They had us take the tree and just asked us to mail a check! That's amazing ! Totally different Christmas experience! !
  • I love going there for Christmas. It's a far drive for me but always worth it. The reindeer are such sweet animals and the property is just beautiful. Try to go during the week or early in the morning to avoid a crowd. Thank you for a great place and a unique experience.
  • This was a fun place to go.. But the best part is feeding the reindeer. There is a place to eat and other activities for young ones, but you can make it a quick trip if you just feed the reindeer.
  • Great experience. we pet and fed the reindeer - I even kissed one which is a mixed bag experience. Very nice owners and amazing corn maze.
