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.

  • July: Thurs., Fri., and Sat. 10am-4pm
  • August: Sat. 10am-4pm

(Private tours not available these days.)

 

Private appointments are available as follows:

We are closed on Sundays.

 

(Note: private tours are available year-round M-F, except July). The cost for a private tour is $25 for a group of up to 4 people and $5 for every additional person.

Please call or email us for a reservation.

Reservations must be confirmed in advance.

 

 We regret that we are unable to take private appointments on Saturdays (or Thurs.-Sat. in July). We have neither the staff nor enough alpacas to do so.

Thank you for understanding. :)

Please Note: During peak season (June-Sept.) and holidays, private tours fill up at least 1-2 weeks in advance, so it is wise to make your reservations early. Last minute tour requests are welcome via phone or email, but please understand that our schedule very likely will be full that day.

A bit more information . . .

The main difference between an "open farm day" visit and a private tour is that on "open" days, you can feed carrots to the 'pacas at the fencline, 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!
