National Alpaca Farm Days

We are joining other alpaca farms across the country in opening our farm to the public for the 15th Annual National Alpaca Farm Days. 2021 marks 14 years into our own journey with alpacas. Learn about the alpaca, their care and what goes into the creation of products made with their wonderful fiber. We will open the farm shop for you to browse some unique gift ideas.

There will be tours offered throughout the day. Or you can stroll leisurely on your own through designated areas as a self guided tour.

Alpacas aren’t the only animals you will see on the farm. We also have a small flock of Gulf Coast Sheep, a couple of miniature horses, chickens, turkeys, livestock guardian dogs and a few barn cats hanging around.

Bring a sack lunch and eat under the shade of our gazebo, or at any of our picnic tables throughout the property.
