Kiss My Alpacas

Thank you for making May and June a smashing success!



We are closed during the hot summer months, July through September, to give the alpacas time to chill in front of fans in their barns. They are pretty antisocial as they are sporting and regrowing their fur coats since being shorn April 3.


We appreciate your understanding and look forward to our visitors this fall.

Our farm will reopen for private visits by appointment only from October 1 thru December 19 (closed Thanksgiving day 11/25). Please note that we are fully booked for October.

Hours are 9-2 weekends and 9-12 weekdays. Masks are not required outdoors, but we will continue to wear masks inside our studio shop to keep us all safe.

All you need to bring are big smiles and a camera!


They are also skilled at turning fluffy alpaca fur into handmade items perfect for gifts, souvenirs and collections. Peruse their online store here.
