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.

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

We visited this farm yesterday. We are animal lovers and found the experience to be very enjoyable. It was raining very heavily but luckily, it stopped long enough for the adorable and friendly alpacas to come over to the fence and visit with the tourists. The owners are lovely and their property is gorgeous. It seemed odd just pulling up... More

These gracious people take incredible care of their alpacas and property. They are knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. You are a guest in their home, so remember to be polite. I live here, and it is a little trip that makes me smile every time.

Summer seems to make the Alpacas disappear to the back 40. The farm seemed to be more a showroom for yarns and product sales. A place to cool off and spend time is nice in summer for adults not children. Seemed to be a "gentlemen's farm."
