The Musk Ox Farm is nestled in the pastoral Matanuska Valley just outside of Palmer, Alaska, a scenic fifty-minute drive from downtown Anchorage. Our picturesque Colony farm, where we continue a unique domestication project, begun sixty years ago, is home to a lively herd of over eighty musk oxen, from powerful bulls to frolicking calves.
