Grand Canyon Deer Farm
Love deer? Love a whole ton of deer at one time?
The Grand Canyon Deer Farm has been in business since 1969. This local attraction is a favorite stop for visitors of all ages. Just be prepared for the onslaught of very friendly deer.
One cup of deer treats does not go very far. In fact, we didn’t make it but 5 feet inside their enclosure before we were swarmed with deer. Be sure to wear clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty as the deer will chew on food, lick your fingers and munch on your clothing.
Once the treats are gone, they move onto the next guest. Well, except for this little white deer who tells Dave what he thinks about an empty cup.
Randy and Pat George, the current owners, bought the deer farm in 1987. Since then they have expanded both the store and the animal population, adding reindeer, talking birds, wallabies, coatimundi, marmosets, mini cattle, bison and even a camel!
So how did a camel get in a deer farm? One only can guess. But this camel is famous for giving kisses.
In fact, she was partial to Dave. Seems that she loves facial hair. He didn’t even have to have a carrot in his mouth to get a big ol’ smooch from her.
It’s not every day that you get kissed by a camel, is it?
We highly recommend both parks if you are in the Williams area! Plan a day for Bearizona and a half day for Grand Canyon Deer Farm. And tell the camel that Dave said Hi.
