Bay Springs Farm is a preserved working farm situated on what was the last Dairy Farm in Cape May County. Today it is the site of the largest alpaca farm in the County with more than 26 alpacas in a wide range of colors. We specialize in breeding black and gray and colored huacaya alpacas. All our alpacas sell with full guarantees and service support, plus free boarding for 6 months.. We carry all types of alpaca yarn, fleece and finished products--sweaters, throws, socks and scarves--in our farm store. We are open to the public every Sat. & Sun. from 10-4 or at other times by appointment.

The farm was small and the proprietor was very helpful. It was something different to do. I would recommend this for anyone who enjoys nature and is generally a curious person.

Happy animals, clean facility, nice people. As with so many hidden treasures in Cape May, this is a good place to visit for the whole family!

Warren and Barbara, the wonderful owners of the farm, are so happy to help visitors enjoy the incredible surrounding and the darling animals. We even saw a bald eagle on one of our many visits. I would recommend a visit for anyone of any age. Visit the gift shop for an additional treat. Just great!

My husband and I visited Bay Springs with my daughter and her fiance. We had such a good time visiting with the alpacas and the owners. All our questions were answered in detail about the alpacas, the farm and the products in the farm store. We purchased several items including fingerless gloves, hats, socks, and a gorgeous cape (a Christmas... More

I've been travelling to Cape May for years; in fact, I've always considered it my "home away from home". So, imagine my surprise when, after returning from Higbee Beach (that's another review), my friend and I stumbled upon Bay Springs Farm. Now, New Jersey is not short on farms - especially Cape May - but ALPACAS?? That's right, Bay Springs... More

The owners accomodated our visit to Cape May by letting us stop in even though they were not officially open. Even the adorable alpacas were accomodating, greeting us at the fences and allowing us to pet them. SO cute! There is a nice little gift shop as well. Worth the visit to learn about and appreciate these lovely animals, all... More

My 10 year old grandaughter and I stopped for about an hour at 10am on a Saturday morning. The farm is small and has 16 alpacas. The female owner was very, very kind and helpful...brought us carrots to feed them, introduced us to all the alpacas and provided us a lot of interesting information. She is a teacher and knew...

If you like animals then this a nice divertion from the beaches. Open only on Saturday and Sunday . Lovely little farm with 30 or so Alpaca. However, There was no one there to talk about the animals and as it was a sunny day they were all in the shade on the opposite side of the field. Only one... More

And their owners are quite friendly, too! We really enjoyed this trip to the farm, and the owner gave us some carrots so we could feed the girls! The gift shop was nicely stocked with beautiful alpaca products- some yarn from her own animals. This was one of the highlights of our trip to Cape May.

Barbara N, Owner at Bay Springs Farm Alpacas, responded to this review

These visitors were fabulous. We always let people feed the alpacas carrots if they are polite and courteous. We love visitors, but hope that people understand that this is a working farm and we are only open to the public on weekends. We can only have visitors on Sat. & Sun. from 10-4pm. If others want to simply see some... More

I did not have a great experience here. Maybe we caught the owner at a bad time, even though we were there during regular operating hours, but when I stopped in with my girlfriend and our kids (two Moms and three kids 4,4,and 6) he made us feel awkward. He didn't offer any information on the alpacas. We felt like... More
