musk ox farm

The current recommendations of the CDC regarding masks does not apply to the safety of our animals. While mask mandates and requirements are being relaxed in some areas and businesses, our organization must consider the safety of our herd as a top priority. We will continue to follow the recommendations of the Alaska State Vet to aid in our pandemic protocols. Thank you for your understanding, and for helping us keep our beautiful musk oxen healthy and happy!


For the health and safety of our incredibly unique herd, we have covid-19 protocols in place that all visitors are required to follow. Following the recommended guidelines of the Alaska State Vet, we have implemented the following protocols to our tour operations: 

• Tour size will be limited to allow for plenty of room for social distancing between visitors and staff. 

Face masks are required for all visitors over the age of 2 inside our buildings, and outside during the tour.

• Staff will be required to wear face masks and to wash/sanitize hands frequently.

• Hand washing and hand sanitizer will be readily available to guests and staff.

• Surfaces will be cleaned by staff between each tour. 

• If anyone in your party is experiencing any symptoms of COVID or feels unwell in any way, entry will not be permitted. You must call us to rebook or cancel your tour. 


Thank you for helping us keep our herd safe.

We look forward to having you visit the farm this summer!
