**Please keep in mind that we are a small family farm and we don't have regular hours, so we need to be able to open the store and prepare the alpacas for your visit! Since we will open our farm for your visit, we appreciate a call if for some reason you can't make it at your visit time.

ABOUT YOUR VISIT:
When you visit the farm you can learn about the alpacas, feed them and feel their wonderful fleece, and even take a selfie with them!

ABOUT US & OUR FARM:
People ALWAYS ask us…"How did you ever get into this?". An educator (Barb) and a physician (Marc), we stumbled on these delightful animals in 2003, fell in love, and began a life journey that was both unforeseen and wonderful! We now keep a herd of 12 to 20 alpacas, an alpaca farm shop, and offer agritourism opportunities.
Our herd has evolved to include some fiber animals which we will sell to good homes as pets and fiber producers, foundation girls with proven birthing histories, and elite alpacas who are proving themselves in the show ring. We usually have 12-20 alpacas on the farm. We treat every alpaca with individual attention and care, which we believe is the reason our health and birthing history is excellent. We feed and clean twice a day, interacting with our animals using trust-building husbandry techniques that bring out the best in the alpacas.

0% Interest for 1 - 2 years for breeding females and packages. Specific terms negotiable.
