Today a few of my friends and I had the pleasure of taking a beautiful scenic sleigh ride through the breathtaking views of Williamstown MA. It was the first sleigh ride for everyone involved. You can take a sleigh ride for $14 or have the whole sleigh ride for $125. You can fit 10 adults on the sleigh ride and still be comfy. They provide blankets to warm you up. Both horsed weigh 1600 pounds each and they are such amazing horses. Bear the golden retriever joined us on our sleigh ride. THe man who own the horses was such a lovely man who reminded me of MAtthew in Anne of Green Gables. At one point of the ride the owner let the horses move a bit quicker and it was so much fun. We were brought to a small cozy hut and we were treated to hot chocolate. We were provided time to chat with friends and then we were on our way. At the end of the sleigh ride we visited the small store. THey have alpacas and make beautiful sweaters, mittens, hats and many other articles. THe land is also on a maple syrup farm and they sell amazing syrup for a very good price. Everyone loved the sleigh ride and had an amazing day in Williamstown. The drive up to the farm was spectacular. This is a must if you want something to do that is unique and very special. The people are so down to earth and love what they are doing.

I went by to see the alpaca and talk with the owners, but no one was there.

It's a lovely property, about 11 alpaca, a store, it seemed they were 'cooking' maple syrup, just that I didn't see a soul. So, I left.

Spent this past weekend in Williamstown for a wedding. Had the good fortune of spending two days of the wedding weekend at Sweet Brook Farm. Working Alpaca farm with amazing mountain views. Sitting under a tent watching the moon rise had everyone with their phones out for pictures. Was curious about their store and ended up taking home alpaca socks and maple syrup.

We stopped during open hours, but no one was there. The store was open and there was a note with a number to call, but no one answered. This was our second attempt in the weekend. The dyed fiber and yarns are no longer sold there, but syrup and some socks, mittens and scarves still available. We would have loved to see more, and learn about the herd.

We visited Sweet Brook Farm because my wife needed some knitting needles and wool (we were on vacation with a group, the others of whom were skiing for the day.)

The farm is in a beautiful location, with chickens and alpacas a plenty! The shop was perfect for my wife's needs (she got what she needed and also some additional alpaca wool at a very reasonable price) and we also bought some of the farm's maple syrup.

Well worth a visit!

You must visit combination, maple syrup and alpaca farm! The maple syrup, available in three grades, is the best I have had and is priced to compete with inferior store and corporate brands! The alpaca fur products are beautiful and sensual, but the disarming alpacas themselves are almost reason enough to visit.

There is also a wonderful sleigh ride offered on weekends in the winter (and a hayride in the warmer seasons) which is a must! The views of Mt. Greylock and other vistas from points of view, only available to the few lucky enough to live in this area, are worth the modest price. The experience of being pulled in a sleigh, replete with bells, is also a must.

This is a great experience for lovers, families and children. The scent of burning wood when one arrives on a winter day is like comfort food. Walk into the store and that familiar scent is replaced by the processing of the maple syrup, an incredible sensory experience!

Try the syrup samples, buy the size that suits you, pet the alpacas and look forward to sharing this hidden treasure with your friends!

Hint: Take Woodcock Road and bear left to get there -- easier drive.

Stopped here while traveling north to Manchester. Nice family owned farm with some great tasting maple syrup. The owner gave us a detailed tour of the building and the syrup making process. Had samples and was surprised by the great flavor. Have had many syrups and there's tasted a little different. Had an almost butterscotch flavor. The alpaca products are a plus. My daughter loves her socks.

Alpacas and maple syrup, two great tastes that go great together! What's not to love? There's even a "guard llama" to keep the alpacas safe.

Highly recommend a visit here. Owner could not have been nicer or more informative. Of course I bought some yarn, hubby got alpaca socks and we bought some of his amazing maple syrup. Beautiful place--wonderful views, sweet alpacas and dog--owner also gave us great info on the geography and geology of the area. Go!
