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 take pride in ensuring that our alpacas are cared for with the utmost attention to their health and happiness. Our farm focus is agritourism (farm tourism), and our alpacas are happy to oblige by enthusiastically greeting visitors!

A bit more information . . .

The main difference between an "open to the public" visit and a private tour is that on "open" days, you can feed carrots to the 'pacas at the fence line, and there is a tour guide outside to answer questions. The private visits include actually going into the paddock with the female alpacas for feeding and mingling (sort of like "swimming with the dolphins," but without getting wet!).
Also, your tour guide is for your group alone, so you can ask as many questions as you like! Note: Private tours are one group at a time, and not combined with any other visitors.
