Carley Farm Information
Carley Elk Farms, LLC was established on September 11, 2001. I was buying my first 2 bred cows when the towers were attacked. I was in Southern Indiana and was not able to get any service, my family couldn't get a hold of me to let me know about the tragic events that were occuring in the world.
Our family had been looking for a way to somewhat live independently off the land we owned and with my passion for hunting, "elk" farming seemed to be the perfect fit for our family. My wife Angie, our two children, Danielle and Clayton and myself are all active in the choosing, raising, and handling of the elk.
The elk herd is about 30 strong and still growing. We have 4 bottle fed elk that are very people friendly! We have James, our 9 yr old bull elk, Emmy, our 7 year old bottle fed cow and Indy Sam who was born on Memorial Day weekend last year and named after Indy race car winner, Sam Hornish Jr.
In April, 2008 we started raising deer. We have 19 deer on our farm with 4 of them being bottled fed.
The second Saturday of September we host a FREE farm tour. We invite people to come tour the farm FREE and get a experince of a lifetime. On this day we have antique tractors, craft booths, face painting, kid games, and we serve elk burgers for a small price.
We welcome people to our farm for tours year round, please call for pricing. Any size or age group is welcome! Please call for scheduling your tour/field trip. This makes for a great field trip, youth group event, or just a family day out in the country. On the tours you will get a hayride/ranger ride around the farm, discussion about the care/health/feeding of the elk/deer, a free elk jerky or snack stick, and a free drink.
We even have a program where you can Rent-Our-Elk for your school or church function, or any special occassion! Please contact Cliff Carley @ (317) 502-6999. Carley Elk Farm also offers elk meat, t-shirts, sweatshirts, antlers, mounts, elk lined gloves and much more. You can also check out our online store through this website to purchase any our products that you may want!
