Cape May
Yes, Cape May is, technically, on the Jersey Shore. But it’s the antithesis of the Jersey Shore you’ll see on TV—instead of nightclubs and tanning parlors, you’ll find Victorian mansions and a famous lighthouse.

Jersey Shore Alpacas is a small, friendly farm located in Green Creek, just north of Cape May, NJ. We welcome visitors to our farm and store on Saturdays from 10am-4pm, from March-December. We are also open Thursdays and Fridays during July and offer private tours as well. We'll give you some carrots to feed to our friendly 'pacas during your visit. There is no admission charge, but donations are accepted and much appreciated. You'll love meeting our curious alpacas and browsing in our shop for soft, warm alpaca clothing and cuddly toys! We also carry more than 20 different types of alpaca yarn from Blue Sky Alpaca, Alpaca Yarn Company, our Coop, and farm yarn (when available). less
