Visiting Our Farm

National Alpaca Farm Day
National Alpaca Farm Day

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 them for some "up close and personal" mingling, with a personal tour guide!

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!

Fun on Photoshoot Day!
