Testimonials from Satisfied Sleigh Riders

Our family had a fantastic time taking sleigh rides at Northern Star Farm thanks to Matthew Wismer. He is a gracious host, great historian, and safe driver! He was very flexible and able to work with a variety of personalities within our group-he is very “intune” to interpersonal relationships. He has a kind and patient manner with children and was able to create in them an interest in history at their level and answered all their questions. Will definitely attend up coming events as he made us feel “part of his family/friends”. Tx again! – Mary D.

This Northern Star Farm sleigh ride was an ingenious Christmas gift from my 2 daughters. We took this adventurous tour last Saturday with 3 of my young granddaughters. Although we were packed pretty tight under a cozy, warm blanket, it was an hour of complete pleasure and an experience far greater than I expected. It is on my list of adventures, comparable to a hot air balloon ride I took 20 years ago.  It is obvious that Matt, the owner, is living out his passion. He is knowledgeable of local lore, which makes the trip even more interesting. He added thrills by creating conditions that feel like a roller coaster ride while he adds humor to his oration. My girls had a chance to simulate the open-air voyage of their favorite Disney movie character, Anna of “Frozen” as we sung sleigh-related songs. I can say that this is one of the Best Christmas Gifts ever. I am glad that I didn’t tuck away the gift certificate in a drawer. It was an opportunity to share a memorable occasion with my young grandchildren. It is an experience we will remember always. Thanks kids and thank you Matt. – Linda W.

I just wanted to say Thank you again for being a part of making my Mom’s dream come true. The whole time driving home she spoke about you and the sleigh ride. It was nice hearing her laugh while she was on the ride especially when you kept going up and down that one hill. I wish you the best with your business. It was like finding a rare gem. I am sure you will hear from us again. – Debra


Awesome job, great feedback from moms and girls. At least we have one great memory of an awfully long seeming winter. – Stephanie
