Open House Tours: We host six – seven Open Houses every year. During the open houses you do not need to make an appointment as long as you arrive during the open house dates/hours. We also have beverages, fresh movie style popcorn and homemade cookies available for our visitors.
Tour Fee: We do not charge per person for our tours, but always appreciate donations and or shoppers in our farm store/gallery.
The tours include hands on visits with the alpacas and an education based tour walking you through the origins and care of alpacas as well as how their fiber is processed and used to make wonderfully soft, warm wearables as well blankets and rugs.
How long are tours?
Tours and open house visits usually take between 45 minutes to an hour. Just depends on the visitors.
Weather and Access
Tours and Open Houses take place RAIN or SHINE. The majority of the tour takes place under a roof or inside our studio. This is a private farm/studio. Unfortunately we do not have wheelchair access up to the studio (second portion of tour). While the ground is a little uneven in the barn, we have had folks successfully navigate a visit with the alpacas in a wheelchair.
No Visiting Dogs Please
Our dogs have a job on the farm…besides entertaining our guests. Their job is to keep other canines off our property. Canines are the biggest threat to alpacas as a predator.
Where do I park?
Please stay to the right on the gravel drive and park by the barn. If you are a little early, you may sit and relax in the Adirondack chairs we have provided (or your car) and wait for the tour to begin. Please do not wonder around the farm prior to the tour or open house hours.
