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 "Open Farm" days visitors are welcome to meet and feed the alpacas at the fenceline (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/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!
Please visit our FAQ page for more information about visiting our farm!
Summer 2018 Schedule
We are open to the public as follows:
- July: Thurs., Fri., and Sat. 10am-4pm
- August: Sat. 10am-4pm
(Private tours not available these days.)
Private appointments are available as follows:
- August: Mon.-Fri.
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.
Finally, twice a year, in the fall, we have special events, National Alpaca Farm Day in September and the Holiday Photo Shoots in November and December. 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!
