Ways to SUPPORT THE herd

The Musk Ox Development Corporation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization. There are many ways you can be a part of the work that we do here at the Musk Ox Farm.

Donations provide a critical link to the financial needs of our nonprofit organization. Gentle husbandry methods require animal contact and handling far beyond mainstream farming. It also ensures that our musk oxen live the happiest, healthiest lives possible! There are also 75 acres of pastureland and buildings to maintain.


Visitors taking GUIDED TOURS and folks purchasing items from our GIFT SHOP provide a large percentage of our income. Every purchase helps the herd!

Our Friends of the Musk Ox (FOMO) program is for those interested in membership benefits and having a special "adopted" musk ox friend.

You can choose one-time, monthly, or annual donation options for either your FOMO membership or general donations! Read more below.

Want to support the herd but don't want or need all the OXtras that go with membership? Consider making a GENERAL DONATION.

Whatever way you choose to support us, THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts and hooves!

Musk ox farm shop

Part of the original mission of the Musk Ox Development Corporation is the production of qiviut. This incredibly soft, lightweight, and warm natural fiber makes the world's most luxurious and rare yarn and OXtremely warm garments.

All the yarn and garments we carry in our Musk Ox Farm Shop are made from the gently hand-combed qiviut of the herd living here at the farm! We are one of two organizations in the world that produce qiviut in this gentle manner.

Your purchase of yarn, garments, raw fiber, and other carefully curated musk ox themed items from our shop directly supports our farm and the herd.
