The Grand Canyon Deer Farm is near Williams, Arizona. I had never heard of it until researching fun things to do on the drive to Utah. I came across the website during a google search and knew instantly that it would most likely be my kids’ favorite part of our trip.
I think I was right!
You pay a fee to get in and you pay a fee for food. It was a bit pricey for what is essentially a petting zoo. I can understand they need to make money to feed the animals and upkeep the farm, though.
The deer are pretty intense when you come in with those cups full of food. We barely even made it in the gate! My older girls were holding the cups and in the front and they would not go in. The deer were crowded around the entrance and neither of my girls would even attempt to go inside. They just stood there immobile while the deer ate almost all of the food before Payson and Ember even had a chance to get inside and see what was going on. If I did it all over I’d go in first holding Ember, then let Payson in, then the older girls.
Brooklyn’s been asking for a pet for years. I have always known she likes animals but several times last week when we were around animals I realize just how much. I can’t wait until we move and can get her a pet!
