Glacier Ridge Animal Farm

IMG_0086It was Father's Day and on the way back from our trip to the Midwest Renewable Energy Association seminar we stopped by the Glacier Ridge Animal Farm  in Van Dyne, Wisconsin. Here we encountered the most exotic animals we've ever seen in the Midwest – peacocks, porcupines, llamas, miniature horses, bison, and ostriches. Walking around we enjoyed feeding the animals from the docile deer to the somewhat-scary bison. Speaking to the farmer… we learned that meat from the bison and ostriches are available for sale (talk about being close to one's food chain! One moment you're feeding the animals, next you're buying the meat). Rest assure the peacock is off limits (only bison and ostrich meats).
