Before they take off on Santa's Christmas Eve trip around the world, a Florida farm is giving guests the chance to meet live reindeer this holiday season!

The Mayhem Ranch is hosting its second annual Winter Festival where guests can enjoy a variety of fun activities for the whole family. The ranch is located in Morriston, Florida – which is about a 30- minute drive from Ocala. 

"We are the only farm in Florida with live reindeer for the month of December," the farm told FOX 35 News. 

Mayhem Ranch is a family-owned farm that specializes in raising miniature and exotic animals. After its first Winter Festival last year, the owners decided to bring it back once again with even more yuletide fun!
