Welcome to our Farm!

Jersey Shore Alpacas is a small farm owned and operated by Jim and Tish Carpinelli, and located in Green Creek, a small town near historic Cape May, NJ.


We are committed to breeding fine animals with correct conformation and high quality fleece. We take pride in ensuring that our alpacas are cared for with the utmost attention to their health and happiness.

We welcome visitors to our farm and shop during the following times:

  • Saturdays 10am-4pm, from March-December
  • Thursdays and Fridays during July, also from 10am-4pm
  • By appointment during January, February, and the rest of the year whenever we are able to arrange for your visit (except Saturdays and Sundays).

There is no admission charge during our regular "Open" days, but we do have a donation box, if you wish to help with the herd expenses (we REALLY appreciate it! :). If you schedule an appointment with us, we do ask for a $20 donation per family/small group up to 9 people for a visit up to one hour. This helps cover the time for preparation and your visit. As an "extra" for your donation, private visitors will be allowed into the paddock with the alpacas if they wish (sort of like "swimming with the dolphins," but without getting wet!)
