We had SO much fun here today! The owners are so sweet and you can tell how much they care about their babies! We learned a ton about alpacas and their behaviors. I love that the owner hand makes everything for sale in the gift shop! Lovely people and beautiful animals. We can’t wait to come back!!!

We came out as part of the amazing “Not Your Average Farm Tour” organized by three local farms. David and Christine were incredibly hospitable, knowledgeable, and loving towards their animals. We learned so much and had a wonderful afternoon interacting with, petting, feeding, and even getting kisses from the alpacas. Definitely go.

It is encouraging to hear a guest enjoyed visiting the farm especially during something like the Not Your Average Farm Tour, which is new for this year. Thank you for letting us know your tour was a success! Please visit us again either through the NYAFT or each farm independently.

We didn’t have time for the official tour but we still had a very informative experience and were able to meet several of the alpacas.

Most of the items they sell are made by the owners and they can tell you which of the alpacas contributed their hair to the specific item you are looking at. The items are very well made and the colors (dyed on-site) are gorgeous.

Highly recommended but make sure to make an appointment—visits are by appt only.

Rocking Chair Farm is one of our family’s favorite annual destinations. We’ve been there three times now and enjoy it more each time. The animals truly remember you. My son bonded with Jill in particular, and she is like a therapy animal for him. There’s nothing like plopping on the ground and having a ‘paca plop right down with you.

Dave and Christine are wonderful and create such an amazing experience for us. They take such good care of the animals and never force them to interact if they don’t want to. This is why the Alpacaffection (I just made that up) is so special.

I can’t recommend this enough and wish I lived closer as we’d be there several times a year!

My husband and I took our three teenaged granddaughters to Rocking Chair Farms. They throughly enjoyed the visit. David and Christine were welcoming and eager to share both their knowledge and their herd. We all learned a lot.

We visited on a Sunday. The weather was beautiful and it was a pleasant drive up. The Alpacas are very curious and you can tell well taken care of. This isn’t a petting zoo. The Alpacas are free to participate in petting and photos or just walk away.

Of course, it’s a farm and there is dirt on the ground! Otherwise, how could the grass grow! But overall it’s very clean.

Don’t miss the farm store where you can see scarves that are hand woven by the owners using their own Alpacas. Plus hats that are knitted with their alpaca yarn too!

So glad we got a chance to visit.

Our family took the hour long tour of the farm. We learned so much about alpacas that we didn’t know previously. There was plenty of opportunity to feed and interact with the animals. It’s an experience we’ll never forget!
