Mother's Day is always a special occasion, but for the Musk Ox Farm in Palmer, it has become a tradition that many in the community look forward to all year.
The Musk Ox Farm officially opens for the summer season on Mother's Day, for good reason - it's also an unveiling of the newest calves, which are born each spring. This year, only one calf was born on the farm - Bumble. The little cutie is already frolicking away on the farm! Bumble is to meet the human public on Mother's Day for the first time. The cute calves steal the show during the Mother's Day event every May!
The Musk Ox Farm makes it a whole day of fun. From 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., there will be select chutes available to visit the musk ox, learn from the interpretive guides. It is an "all-weather" event so dress accordingly. Mothers have free admission, while the admission for all others is a suggested donation to the farm, which is a non-profit organization.
The Musk Ox Farm opens its regular summer season on Monday, May 9, when their regular scheduled tours are available from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., seven days a week through the end of August.
