Visiting Our Farm
Here at Jersey Shore Alpacas, we offer a variety of fun opportunities to meet and mingle with the critters, and learn about their fiber as well. On Saturday "Open Farm" days visitors are welcome to meet and feed the alpacas at the fence line (we provide carrots). There is no charge, but we do have a donation box on the fence (we really appreciate donations, which help support the alpacas). If you are unable to visit on an "Open Farm" day or would like an even more personal experience, we also offer a $25/$30 (depending on time of year) group private appointment (up to 4 people in a group, with additional people $5 each) where you are able to feed the alpacas and also go into the paddock with the girls for some "up close and personal" mingling, with a personal tour guide!
2019 Farm Schedule
Thursdays and Fridays in July we will be open to the public 10am-3pm (without a reservation) for mingling in the pen with the alpacas (but no feeding).
Saturdays in July will be open to the public 10am-4pm (without a reservation) for feeding at the fence line (we provide carrots).

Finally, twice a year, in the fall, we have special events, National Alpaca Farm Day in September and the Holiday Photo Shoots later in the fall. Both of these special days, visitors are allowed into the paddocks with the girls! Of course, we hope our visitors will follow up their alpaca-time with a visit to our shop, filled with luxurious, soft and warm alpaca products!
