One of the owners, Matt, gave my friends and I a thorough tour of the alpaca pasture and farm-- he was so friendly and kind! He answered all of our questions and let us interact with the alpacas! We had such a wonderful time!

Even a little rain did not dampen our fun. We met the Alpacas just days before they were due to be clipped. Nick was a great source of knowledge about the "boys and girls" he cares for. Such beautiful animals in such a delightful setting.
