Jeremiah, Addie, Audrie and Kari
Show-Me Reindeer, LLC. is owned and operated by us – Jeremiah and Kari Scull at our home in Robertsville, MO. We have two young daughters- Addie and Audrie, who adore animals as much as we do. Our farm consists of pygmy goats, chickens, ducks, guineas, turkeys and of course the reindeer.
Many wonder “Why Reindeer?”
After taking our oldest daughter Addie to a local farm and home store to have her picture taken with a reindeer for her first Christmas, we realized that the reindeer were being brought in from other states as there were not USDA licensed exhibitors in our area of Missouri or in the entire St. Louis region. After deciding to pursue the idea of being able to bring reindeer to Missouri, we joined the Reindeer Owners and Breeders Association to better educate us on the proper care and treatment of having reindeer then started the grueling task of upgrading our property to the meet USDA requirements. In early September 2014, we made the trip as a family to the “North Pole” to finally bring our 2 bull calves home. The following year we were fortunate to be able to bring home the father and mother of the calves to be able to start breeding on our farm in hopes of expanding our herd.
On April 19, 2016, we welcomed our first reindeer calf born on the farm- Snowflake. In September 2016, we brought home a cow calf from another farm in the “North Pole” to introduce a new blood-line at the farm. Later that year we returned to bring home her two brothers. We hope to continue gradually expanding our herd with happy healthy reindeer to match our growing schedule of holiday events each year. We hope to be able to bring our reindeer to an event near you!
