The Norse God Oden on Sleipner, his eight legged horse.


In America, agritourism is wide-spread and includes any farm open to the public at least part of the year. Tourists can learn about farm operations, shop in a farm gift shops and farm stands for local and regional produce or hand-crafted items.

At Norse Horse Park there are special breeds of horses, experiences in the wool productions, poultry operations, a garden shop as well as a weekly farmers market for Washington Island. Special emphasis is placed on sustainable agriculture and organic food production.

Norse Horse Park is NOT a petting zoo of tropical animals, but a real horse farm that is focused on the conservation of domesticated animals who come from the Nordic Island countries very much like their home on Washington Island.

Viking runes - letters.
