Our family had always been fascinated by alpacas, but it wasn't until 2001 that we decided to bring six of them to our farm. We fell even more in love with these gentle, unique creatures. Not only are they the perfect farm animal, but alpacas also...more

The alpacas are the cutest creatures and we’re happy to eat gently out of our hands. If you can afford any of the goods made from the alpaca you can expect it to be super soft! Not a lengthy outing it sure to be enjoyed.

Begin your visit by viewing the alpaca herd across the driveway from the boutiques. This herd has dark brown alpacas, others sporting various shades of tan, and a pure white alpaca or two. These alpacas seem very gentle and are obviously used to having humans...More

What a sweet little farm. You can watch the Alpacas in the pasture and shop in the boutique. The staff/owner is friendly and willing to answer questions about the animals and the shop.

There are no hours posted. Just go by and you will see the Alpacas grazing outdoors. I am guessing the gift shop would be open after 10AM.
